The Jim Joseph scholarships are through Jewish Federations
(to clarify a point)
It is amazing that Congress has no problem with 18 BILLION dollars of earmarks snuck into the appropriatiions bill,but hits the ceiling for 165 Million of bonuses, they and the White House and the Fed knew about.Surely immoral but yet legal.
What is truly amazing .sad and even depressing is that because the stimulus "had to be passed on a Friday", not a SINGLE member of the Congress could read a word of it prior to voting. Then the President waits until Tues to sign it.
Where was the transparency? where was the opportunity for Americans to examine this bill in the quiet of their homes on their computers,and be given a chance to communicate with their elected officials?
Is this democracy at work?
This "CHANGE" is all BS!
IT IS POLITICS NOT ONLY AS USUAL, BUT IN CAMPAIGN MODE.Take away the teleprompter, and the President is just a slick fast talker without a handle on how to run this country.
As was said in the campaign ,he never ran anything in his life,(someone said ...not even a candy store) and he and Geithner are out of their leagues.
THE UNNECRSSARY TRADE WAR WITH MEXICO OVER TRUCKING PRECIPIITATED BY THE TEAMSTERS, AND THE THREATS OF THE CHINESE FOR A SIMILAR BUT WORSE WAR OVER CAP AND TRADE,SHOWS THAT HIS POLICY ON TRADE IS POORLY THOUGHT OUT.
We still await a plausible policy on the toxic assets of banks,and that as part of the housing crisis is where he should be devoting his time.
GET THE TREASURY DEPT UP TO STAFF!
The trillions and trillions of dollars in projected deficits which his energy and health plans will yield are frightening.
One last point while I am venting.The word "terrorist" is absent from the vocabulary of Homeland Security Sec. Nepalitano,and now the A-G talks about releasing some Guantanimo prisoners into our society
.I have an idea, why not help them upon their release to get a large campsite for terrorist training,so that they will not have to plot to get their colleagues into the country to commit mayhem.? We can send the Hamas people from Gaza there for indoctrination,on the scholarships promised by Sec. Clinton.
