“Stimulus Plan” = Big Oil Profits + Larger National Debt!

Well the bush crime family has trumpeted it’s great plan to fix the economy. Since they broke it, it’s theirs. They had plenty of help from their unindited co-conspirators in the house and senate. They broke it too. On with the pork barrel spending! This from the new york times:

Tax Rebates in $168 Billion Stimulus Plan Begin Arriving in Bank Accounts

Published: April 29, 2008

The federal government began issuing electronic tax rebates on Monday under a $168 billion program to bolster the economy.

President Bush and Congress hope the plan will generate spending and jump-start the economy by putting money in people’s hands. The plan, which was passed by Congress in February, also includes tax breaks for businesses.

Economists have debated how much of an impact the stimulus plan will have. A study of similar rebates in 2001, performed by Joel Slemrod and Matthew D. Shapiro, economics professors at the University of Michigan, found that taxpayers primarily saved the money or used it to pay off debts.

Slemrod and Shapiro don’t have to worry about anyone saving or paying off debts this time out. We all know what the “rebate checks” are gonna be spent on. This from reuters:

Gasoline price at record $3.60

By Tom Doggett Mon Apr 28, 5:56 PM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. drivers faced more pain at the pump as the average price for gasoline reached a record $3.60 a gallon on Monday and truckers went to Capitol Hill to protest soaring diesel fuel costs.

The national price for regular, self-service gasoline skyrocketed 9.5 cents over the last week to a new high and is up 63 cents from a year ago, the federal Energy Information Administration said in its survey of service stations.

The pump price has jumped 21 cents a gallon in the last two weeks alone and is expected to keep climbing, due to high crude oil costs that on Monday reached a record $119.93 a barrel at the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The White House said there was nothing the government could do to help lower gasoline prices this spring and summer.

“I think it would be disingenuous and unfortunate for American consumers for them to be led to believe that there is a short-term fix. There’s not going to be one,” White House press secretary Dana Perino told reporters on Monday.

If anyone has anything left, they can use it to pay for food. The prices at the supermarket are through the roof too. But I’m not telling anyone anything they don’t know. What really sticks me though is how they will pay for this disaster:

Yup, they gonna borrow it. They gonna charge it to us at a later date. ONLY THE IDIOTS IN washingtOOn could come up with a scheme in which they borrow from PETER (YOU!) to pay PETER (YOU!). Where the hell Paul got off to in this scheme is anyones guess. It’s all just another CorpoRATeer enrichment plan. SONOFABUSH!

In the mean time the brilliant war strategy of the two parties of the apocalypse has taken a bizarre turn. The bush crime family installed shiite “government” in Iraq has recently taken a hard line against the shiite militias, so OUR moronic government has managed to turn the shiite against the shitte. What a bunch of geniuses we have in charge all around. Of course our young people in uniform are stuck with this mess and many more of them will come home in body bags or egregiously injured. There have been over a MILLION Iraqis killed. In the mean time we continue to get stuck with the bill for the disaster of a war! HEY g’dubya, what happened to YOUR brilliant war strategy?

“DAGNABIT, It done blowed up!”

Surely the brilliant general in charge has something to say about all this:

FOUR STAR SHEMP (aka general sargent schultz)

I know nothing, NOTHING!

There’s only three things we can do.

ONE, for the disaster of out of control deficit spending on the war and otherwise:

Pelt the bastards in washingtOOn with the Pork Barrel Pot Pie!

TWO, so the low grade morons in washingtOOn can get a clue WHY EVERYTHING IS GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET, PELT THE DAMN FOOLS WITH THE PEACE PIE!

THREE, VOTE FOR THE ONLY CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT THAT WILL FIX THIS MESS!

VOTENADER.ORG

Even for the Telepathic Crickets on the ClapSotronics editorial board, voting for Nader is an easy decision. If INSECTS can get that, WHY ARE YOU NOT GETTING IT YET?

The scientifically impossible I do right away

The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer

  1. I am switching from veri$on to Skype Wifi phone to lower my phone bill. Then I think I will use a cellar to store my food and dry goods rather than a fridge. When I have a house it will be small and well insulated by me putting in lots of insulation.
    Then as a daydream maby a gym where butiful woman can come to work out and generate my electricity on the tredmills. Would keep my energy green and help heat.

  2. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP KICK OFF THE GREEN MOVEMENT AND LOWER THE PROFIT MARGIN OF THE EVIL CORPORATE GIANTS, AND….

    IF YOU ARE TIRED OF PAYING A RIDICULOUS PRICE PER GALLON AT THE GAS PUMP PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THIS MESSAGE.

    I am starting this e-protest as a reasonable means of reaching 300,000,000 Americans and at least as many of our global cousins.
    It is very simple……

    We as a global culture MUST WORK TOGETHER……

    This means that we must all AGREE to do one thing as a group…..

    Right now you are asking yourself HOW CAN I CHANGE THE PRICE OF GAS?

    Simple…. Join together and collectively act…..

    DO NOT BUY GAS FOR ONE WEEK EACH MONTH!!!

    I am calling upon all individuals who purchase gas to not buy gas for one whole week.

    Fill up on the last week of the month and COMMIT to not buy gas or any products from a gas station from the 1st of each month to the 7th of each month.

    I know that I am asking for a huge change in your weekly lifestyle. It will mean carefully considering the number of miles that are absolutely necessary to drive in that week
    and not driving unless it is an absolute necessity.

    One more thing and this is THE big one. This will only work if every person who receives this message passes it along to every person on their email list.
    This is the most critical part. The average person has around 70 email addresses in their contact list, If every person I sent this to forwards it to their whole contact
    list that will be over 5000 people…..if these all forward it to about 70 people thats over 340,000 people, if these all participate it will be over 24,000,000 people.
    That is only after the third generation of emails if each of these 24,000,000 participate, that is almost 1.5 billion people.

    PLEASE DON’T DISCARD THIS EMAIL, SEND IT TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW, AND FOLLOW UP WITH THEM TO SEND IT TO EVERYONE THEY KNOW!

    I AM NOT ASKING FOR MORE THAN A COUPLE OF HOURS OF YOUR TIME. THIS IS A SMALL PRICE TO PAY TO PREVENT THE OIL COMPANIES FROM
    RAISING THE PRICE OF GAS TO MORE THAN THE HOURLY MINIMUM WAGE!!!!!

    If you are not sure just how this could work think about how much impact
    BIG OIL will feel if over 1,000,000 people stop buying their weekly gas just one week a month.

    If you are like the average consumer and you fill up just once a week at around $50.00 and you multiply this figure by 1 million,
    That’s 50 million dollars a month that hits hard immediately. Now suppose this happens over the course of three to four months,
    and the participation continued to escalate as I have outlined. The results would have to be in our favor. The number of gallons of fuel processed and delivered are carefully
    calculated by the oil companies based on the number of gallons sold in the previous months and years…
    If the fuel consumption goes down the amount produced and on standby becomes a backlog situation…
    If there is a glut of fuel left over at the end of each month for a few months the Oil Companies have no choice but to lower the price to get the fuel moved!
    The result LOWER PRICES AT THE PUMP!!!!! IT”S HIGH TIME WE AS CITIZENS OF AN EMERGING GLOBAL SOCIETY
    STARTED TO PUT THESE COMPANIES ON NOTICE. WE ARE THE ONES WHO ULTIMATELY CONTROL THE MARKET BECAUSE WE ARE THE MARKET!!!!!!

    Please take this seriously We are only going to change the status quo if we refuse to let the suppliers dictate the rules.

  3. Or better yet ANVIL, do what I do, refuse to own a car and USE NO GASOLINE AT ALL…

    The scientifically impossible I do right away
    The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer
