They do like trying to scare us.

This is the tactic that the Democrats have been using for many, many years. They started back with the Great Depression. That's how FDR got the New Deal passed. It was a massive spending bill that lengthened the Great Depression many more years than it needed to be.

In more recent times, in the '70's, we were supposed to be heading into the next Ice Age. Now, it's Global Warming, the economy, and anything else they can use to scare us into believing that they have all the answers.

Well, guess what. They don't. Nobody does. All anyone can do is the best they can. But, the Government can't spend our way out of this economic recession. I don't understand why, even though it has been proven time and time again, they can't seem to get it through their thick skulls. Japan tried it eight times in the '90's. We tried it in the '30's. Neither time it worked. Every other countries markets follow ours. They have even put a clause in this bill that will mandate that everything that is used in carrying out this bill will be made in the USA. This has upset the leaders of many European nations as a threat to free trade.

This is what we will get if the Government starts to impede into our lives economically. The same thing that is happening right now to the banks. President Obama, in case you hadn't heard yet, has set a limit on what executives can be paid to $500,000. Now, don't get me wrong, I agree that some of the luxury trips and stuff like that are a bit over the top, especially for companies that have received money from the Government to stay in business. However, if a company is limited on the amount of money they can pay someone, then, they will not be able to hire the best people. They will continue to have to depend on the Federal Government to stay in business.

I thought it would be the Chinese or some other country that would attack us through our economy. The Democrats are doing it. They are trying to buy their way into impeding on our freedoms. They are using scare tactics to do it. They are telling us that the situation is dire, and that the Federal Government has to take action now. Well, the country isn't going to stop working if the Government doesn't do anything. As a matter of fact, the free market will survive. It always does. It does correct itself at times. Shoot, the Democrats can't even talk intelligently about this. Nancy Pelosi has stated that the country is losing 500,000,000 jobs a month. That's right, 500 MILLION. According to her, nobody in America should be working.

One thing I have been glad to see over the past couple of weeks is that the people of this Great Nation are getting fed up with this anti-"stimulus" bill. The approval rating for it has gone down to about 38%. Even some of the Senators are reporting that their phones are getting clogged with people calling them to tell them how fed up they are with it.

This is what should be happening. After all, the people in Washington, DC do still work for us.

Yea, they work for us, but I wish I had the power to fire some of them!!!! Or cut their salaries!!!
I was listening to Mark Levin on the radio and he suggested that since Congress thought they could tell the executives how much they could earn, that we should be able to tell THEM how much they should earn. Or collect. From their pensions.
