$1.2 TRILLION PLAN TO SAVE THE ENTIRE WORLD
Here. And it starts with infrastructure.
How complicated is this, really? A million construction workers out of work, 158,000 bridges and 35,000 schools of modernize – not to mention all the other stuff that needs doing. What are we waiting for? The Senate Republicans vote unanimously to kill the President’s jobs bill. The House Republicans are taking up abortion today (yet again) – jobs can wait.
That Roubini paper is a handful. But this next item is a sit-back-and-be-entertained/enlightened/enraged 7 minutes: Rachel Maddow Tuesday reporting on the Occupiers not allowed on a Boston bridge – lest it collapse – and a panel of business heavyweights calling for investment in infrastructure but the Republicans unanimously blocking it. Try to find the 7 minutes to watch.
MITT EMBRACES TED KENNEDY’S HEALTH CARE VISION
Here. Not now, of course.
Based on the information I have on file for you, here’s what I know: If you take the age you turned or will turn this year (you omitted it when you signed up for this page), add 100 if you are pre-pubescent (and kudos to you, little man, for your interest in money and politics), add the number of muffins in a baker’s dozen, subtract the number of great grandparents you have or had (even if you never knew them) – are you getting all this? following the instructions carefully? – add the two-digit year you were born, reverse the order of the result (so, e.g., 479 becomes 974), add 300, and then dial that number from any phone if you ever need emergency services, help will be quickly on its way.
Quote of the Day
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.'~Martin Luther King, Jr.
