    Where was Ed Yardeni when his fellow investment advisors were allowing the system to be raped and bankrupted while they enriched themselves?

    just wondering....

    you know, given that he's so concerned about our welfare and all.

    So you're implying that you feel that this implication somehow answers the question advanced in the OP?

    How does someone's unstated position on a separate issue stand as relevant to a wholly distinct issue? Answer that 'counselor'...

    It appears more economists than just Ed Yardeni feel the stimulus won't stimulate...

    By Kevin G. Hall | McClatchy Newspapers
    WASHINGTON — The compromise economic stimulus plan agreed to by negotiators from the House of Representatives and the Senate is short on incentives to get consumers spending again and long on social goals that won't stimulate economic activity, according to a range of respected economists.

    You know, there is always an upside to things. If these economists are correct, 2010 and 2012 will see yet more changes in government.

    This is not a stilumus program... Hell... it's not even a program; it's a package of disasscociated spending; it's a leftist FREE-FOR-ALL.

    All this FREE-FOR-ALL does... is limit our options when it comes time that we will need that money for that which is actually NECESSARY and CONSTITUTIONAL... It devalues the US Currency, increasing to burden to the treasury and represents little more than good old fashion BRIBERY. Those that voted for this bill could be hauled into any criminal court room in the country and successfully be prosecuted for abuse of power and conspiracy to buy votes...

    It's a national embarassment; it's ruinous irresponsibility; it's socialism... thru and thru.
