President-elect Obama unveiled the first details of the biggest public construction programme in half a century yesterday. He hopes to save or create 2.5 million jobs through an aggressive spending package, involving new roads, schools and hospitals
Rebuilding our “crumbling roads, and bridges?”
“If we do not act swiftly and act boldly, most experts now believe we could lose millions of jobs next year,”
Democratic lawmakers including Senator Charles Schumer of New York said this weekend they plan to design a package as large as $700 billion and deliver it to Obama on his first day in office.
He conceded that any plan is “going to be costly” and lead to a substantial budget deficit.
Infrastructure is a good use of public money during a recession if properly targeted towards projects which are needed and will be used in the ensuing recovery. But if economic recovery occurs before the end of 2009 as predicted, then I do not understand the push towards infrastructure projects to stimulate the economy.
Infrastructure spending ramps up slowly and I cannot see much if any economic benefit occurring during 2009 unless there are projects already designed waiting for funding,
I have personally witnessed the effects of governments trying to ramp up infrastructure investment quickly, and can guarantee the financial waste is significant
Economic Stimulus Infrastructure Plan
This Nafta Super Highway has been in the plans for years now it has a real urgency to be built and paid for by whom? Obama it seems
will now help finance it with our tax payers dollars
One world Government is coming

I would guess the replies are scant because this information is so dead on target. Some people can't handle the truth,even when it's spelled out in black and white.

Do you remember the old days of "duck and cover"? In case of a nuke explosion,put your head between your knees and cover your head.The general public fell for that "hook line and sinker".Know we know,just like those in charge back then that,nothing short of a miracle would save you.

Wow good thread. I think you are completely on target, but what are we to do? It's a train wreck and nothing can stop it now. We just have to brace ourselves and hope for the best. I believe big changes are ahead, 2012, Biblical Prophecy, Nostradamus, NWO, Illuminati. Where t here is smoke there is fire.

In order to bring the "American patriots" to its knees the nation have to be almost into starvation in order to manipulate the opposition and fo Americans to give away their sovereignty for food.
That is why is taking longer in America to get to the NWO hold, America people are to proud and they will fight, but starve them for a while and they will sell their souls for a big Mac and a diet coke.
An interview with Allan Gotlieb, the North American Deputy Chairman of the Trilateral Commission, former Canadian ambassador to the US (1981-89), and Bilderberg 1995 and 1996 attendee. Mr. Gotlieb speaks about the viability of a North American Union, and the environment that would be necessary to produce such a change to our current structure. Mr. Gotlieb also talks about his thoughts about the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and the subsequent NAFTA as well as the current incremental step of the SPP (Security Prosperity Partnership) in producing a future North American Union, and subsequently, a New World Order.

Lou Dobbs Tonight (CNN): Obama Backing North American Union Agenda 12/22/08
Meet the New Puppet, same as the Old Puppet. No "Change" here.
Lou Dobbs reporting on how Globalist/Bilderberg/CFR puppet Obama is appointing the same people from the Bush administration that were behind the original secretive and treasonous SPP agreement/North American Union and the NAFTA superhighway (that supposedly "didn't exist".)

The stated goals of the SPP are cooperation and information sharing, improving productivity, reducing the costs of trade, enhancing the joint stewardship of the environment, facilitating agricultural trade while creating a safer and more reliable food supply, and protecting people from disease.
It is intended to assist, rather than replace, existing bilateral and trilateral institutions like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and claims to work towards the three North American countries working cooperatively in the face of common risks and economic competition from low cost comulti-modal transportation system along the International Mid-Continent Trade and Transportation Corridor to improve both the trade competitiveness and quality of life in North America.
North American Facilitation of Transportation, Trade, Reduced Congestion & Security (NAFTRACS) is a three phase pilot project designed to focus on business processes and information as freight is transported from buyers to sellers. The project is intended to create a partnership between businesses and local, state, and federal governments, while claiming to foster cooperation among the same entities.
The project includes the largest border crossing in North America – the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario – and the largest inland port, Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, the ports of Manzanillo, Colima and Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán. It runs as far north as Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
The North American Union (NAU) is a theoretical regional union of Canada, Mexico, and the United States similar in structure to the European Union, sometimes including a common currency called the Amero. Officials from all three nations have said there are no government plans to create such a union, although the idea has been discussed and proposed in academic and scholarly circles, either as a union or as a North American community as proposed by the Independent Task Force on North America. The formation of a North American Union has been the subject of various conspiracy theories
