WASHINGTON - The economy sank at a pace of just 1 percent in the second quarter of the year, a new government report shows. It was a better-than-expected showing that provided the strongest signal yet that the longest recession since World War II is finally winding down. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32233514/ns/business-stocks_and_economy?ocid=twitter

That would be the US Commerce Department

Not the DNC

LOL

Looks like one of the mods didn't get the memo.

Can someone fill the mod that moved this in on the NEW POLICY I put in place.

All mods have to follow MY POLICY.

Make it so ....NOW.

You better hurry, I DEMAND that MY POLICY is put into action.

Come on NOW....

DO IT NOW.

This is unacceptable.

Thanks for jumping when I say jump.

I demand that ALL the mods follow my policy, it seems they ALL have fallen right into line.

Now go lay down.

Hey satanica, I've come to realize that you are right, I'd like to share the good news with some other conservatives I know. If you could tell me exactly which policies of the President's led to this, I will help you spread the gospel. Together we can make sure the whole internet world knows how lucky we are to have him sharing his wisdom with us.

Better hold off on that....

So...What's going on in the POS state of Illinois?

I blame Bush, it is his 700 billion dollar stimulus package that is ruining Obamas recession.

Well the slow down started in the last quarter of last year so I guess we started coming out of it before the magic negro took office.

Yep. Bush should get credit for the recovery.

Even though most CUers said there was no crisis under Bush.

Jeeeesh.

Those are all very good, but I don't think I can make a case that these construction projects are what turned the economy around. Most haven't started yet, and the ones that did, the money hasn't had a chance to filter down. The Illinois site says the projects were submitted by city mayors in 2008, wasn't that before Obama took office?
I'm sure it was something Obama did, just have to put our fingers on it.

Very little of the stimulus money (less than 10%) went to shovel ready road projects, Most of the money went for extended unemployment benefits, medicaid and a whole host of wasteful Democratic wish list that have been flushed down a rat hole like Acorn, production of a porno horror flick, the study of the sex life of a rat in San Fran and other stupid shit. The 787 billion dollar stimulus plan was not about creating jobs and any one that thinks so is a fool.

They're all very terrible. The state projects illustrate a very good point. One that socialists miss.

It's the old principle of having someone dig a ditch so that you can hire someone else to fill it back in.


A bridge is built. If it is built to meet an insistent public demand, if it solves a traffic problem or a transportation problem otherwise insoluble, if, in short, it is even more necessary to the taxpayers collectively than the things for which they would have individually spent their money had it had not been taxed away from them, there can be no objection. But a bridge built primarily “to provide employment” is a different kind of bridge. When providing employment becomes the end, need becomes a subordinate consideration.“Projects” have to be invented. Instead of thinking only of where bridges must be built the government spenders begin to ask themselves where bridges can be built. Can they think of plausible reasons why an additional bridge should connect Easton and Weston? It soon becomes absolutely essential. Those who doubt the necessity are dismissed as obstructionists and reactionaries. - Henry Hazlitt


If the bridge costs $10 million the taxpayers will lose $10 million. They will have that much taken away from them which they would otherwise have spent on the things they needed most

I for one want to know when the mods are going to institute Satanica's policy.
