A Clunker of a Year – George F. Will – Newsweek.com

I do hope you read this whole article as it is a good reminder of 2009 and all its “clunkers” under the Democrats and Obama.  There were so many and so much that we  are apt to forget some of them, in fact, most of them.  That happens when sane individuals are overwhelmed with the outrageous, unthinkable and just plain stupid actions taken by our federal government, and especially when the actions of our President are so flawed as to be an international embarrassment.  We want to forget!  But if we are to save our nation we simply can not allow ourselves to forget.  George Will has always accurately called a spade a spade; you will enjoy this article.

In Black History Month, a.k.a. February, pupils at a Burlington, N.J., public elementary school sang, “Hello Mr. President/We honor you today/For all your great accomplishments/We all do say ‘Hooray!’ “ So did a smitten Nobel committee.For peace, not economics. For $3 billion, Cash for Clunkers moved many car sales from September to August. By law, the clunkers had to be junked, which boosted used-car prices, penalizing low-income people. Having used stimulus money to give raises to its 317 employees, Head Start in Augusta, Ga., reported 317 jobs created. A Georgia nonprofit multiplied the percentage of raises (1.84) it gave by the number of employees receiving them (508) and reported the stimulus had saved 935 jobs. What was stimulated, aside from bookkeeping nonsense, was demand for Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged, a hymn to unfettered capitalism. Sales exceeded 400,000, double the total in any of the 52 years since it was published.
