This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Stimulus

The Wall Street Journal has HR1 of '09 in the form of a 647 pg. pdf file. Other than the huge numbers, it appears to be mainly gobbldygook. There can be little doubt that a great deal of money will be wasted without lasting good effect.

An email from Freedom Works asserts that:

This week both the House and Senate will be moving a massive $825 billion economic stimulus package full off wasteful spending, and worse still multi-billion dollar handouts to their liberal allies. Specifically, radical Left-wing groups such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) could have access to billions of dollars should this stimulus plan pass. [Emphasis added.]
This quote comes from pg. 141:
(4) $100,000,000 for carrying out activities
under section 1110 of the Social Security Act, of
which $50,000,000 shall become available on Octo-
ber 1, 2009: Provided, That the Secretary of Health
and Human Services shall distribute such amount
under the Compassion Capital Fund to eligible faith-
based and community organizations
: Provided fur-
ther, That the provisions of section 1106 of this Act

Freedom Works wants us to visit this page to send email to our Congressmen telling them to vote against the bill. A search of the bill did not turn up "ACORN", but it did turn up reference to "faith based" and "community organizations". A little ambiguity goes a long way.

What are the chances that your Representative will develop a half-assed understanding of this high tonnage of turgid text in the span of one week? I can assure you that I would not be ready to vote on it within that time span.
