Welcome To The Extended Recession

I was sitting here with my two older grandsons and when word came that the bill had been approved by the Senate I said, “congrats boys, you just went about $30,000 into debt tonight”. Of course that spurred an instant response – “What!?”. And then we had a nice little talk.

Watch for flying pigs

Watch for flying pigs

A bill full of wasteful, unfocused spending with money we don’t have and we’ll be lectured soon about “fiscal responsibility” and “sacrifice” by the profligate yahoos that put this mess together. Can’t wait.

  • We can just call it the Post-partisan Depression.

  • Obama’s signature “Making Work Pay” credit would provide up to $400 for individuals and $800 for couples in 2009 and 2010. Most workers would see about a $13 a week increase in their take-home pay, starting around June. The credit is phased out for individuals making more than $75,000 and couples making more than $150,000.

    If you are a couple making between $150,000 and $250,000 or a single making between $75,000 and $125,000, and voted for Obama hoping for a little “quid pro quo”, you must be feeling like an idiot about now.

  • But Julio is going to be able to go to college and get a better job!

  • Julio, and Manuel, and Conchita, and Guadalupe, and Jesus, and……, just as soon as they can get here.

  • Here’s a bit of irony:

    The cartoon you’ve got there is actually from March 17, 2008.

    The same artist (Steve Benson) published this cartoon on Thursday, showing the GOP elephant chopping down the “Economy” tree with a “The Last 8 Years” chainsaw. 

    If the last 8 years is represented by “The Pork Stork”, exactly how is the Obama economic plan “change”?
