As far as my being employed to sweep streets or repair the infrastructure, I rather doubt I would be hired to do that. I am a small individual with a bad back and pretty much of a wuss. I'd be practically useless to a construction crew, and maybe even a hindrance, because they would have to put down their shovels and rescue me every time I screwed up.
The beauty of a "shovel ready" project is that people can be hired and be working immediately. Many big jobs require at least a year of preparation before they are ready to begin construction. More jobs means more money circulating in our economy and greater prosperity for all.

While it's dispicable and inaccurate to label anyone racist, solely based on the fact that they disagree with Obama's policies, I find it odd that righties are getting so overly defensive.
How can you be so blind as to not see racism toward Obama?
The same people who are continually swearing they're not racist are the same that for years now have begged for birth certificates, and have come up with crazier scenarios than the Magic Bullet Theory.
Of course it's childish are wrong to pull a race card where it isn't applicable, but that's far from equal to stating there is no racism toward the man. You'd have to be blind to not see the racism at times. It's thinly veiled to keep the spineless in the clear, but us grown ups see it just fine.
I have a problem with the flat out lies.
A congressman stating that Tea Party members want to hang blacks from trees is a lie.

Maybe if they just HAVE to have a black President, they should nominate Colin Powell. At least we would have an achiever with integrity and a resume in office instead of a complainer with no record (other than being a failure) at all.edit on 9/1/2011 by OldCorp because: (no reason given)
