Government Loses Faith in Politics, Seeks Old Time Corporate Religion

(Very special thanks to Blame Sally)

Government Loses Faith in Politics, Seeks Old Time Corporate Religion

Pass the Buddha!

With so much heartfelt, transcendental demand from the Democrats for our President to do the right thing on healthcare, jobs, and the economy, now that Obama’s First One Hundred Days have finally come to and end, the Second Hundred Days are going swimmingly:

1. Oops! Nancy Pelosi thought those CIA guys were talking about surfboarding…

2. U.S. Airlines expect drop in summer travel as the nation’s pilots (including hero Pilot Sully) lose pensions and get 40% pay cuts…

3. GM deep-sixes 1,000 U.S. dealers, thousands of employees lose jobs after they bought GM executives golden parachutes …

4. Harmless, shadowy “think tank” Bilderberg group to meet in Greece this weekend, receives goat-flu shots, plot strategy to annihilate American workers...

5. Shadowy, "unofficial but real president" Al Gore joins Cheney-Obama feud… isn’t it the job of VP’s to attend state funerals?...

6. Obama administration hearts tech lobby, sells our white collar McJobs jobs to Indian citizens faster than you can say hold the cheese…

7. WEALTHCARE NOT HEALTHCARE official Obama administration slogan as the insurance lobby backed President (who once promised to never "shy away from a debate about single payer”) puzzles columnist David Sirota: “Obama aides are trying to squelch any single-payer discussion, deploying their health care point-person, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., to announce that "everything is on the table with the single exception of single-payer."

8. Obama attacks Medicare and Social Security…(special thanks to Elaine Meinel Supkis at Culture of Life News)

9. Shameless hedge funds force Chrysler into bankruptcy(special thanks to Pete Latona, OpEdNews)…So what if they provide jobs for citizens, but who needs cars, anyway?

10. War on Drugs still a war…only a "kinder, gentler one"…(courtesy Arianna Huffington)

11. Obama nominates superfund polluter “GE, we bring good things to light” lawyer to run DOJ environment division (h/t Think Progress)

Such is progress. And what do we expect from this President during the first two hundred days, anyway? I’m sure there must be a method to his madness.

Happy Friday, Loserettes!

"The Worst Is Yet to Come": If You're Not Petrified, You're Not Paying Attention(Begins): The green shoots story took a bit of hit this week between data on April retail sales, weekly jobless claims and foreclosures. But the whole concept of the economy finding its footing was "preposterous" to begin with, says Howard Davidowitz, chairman of Davidowitz & Associates.
"We're in a complete mess and the consumer is smart enough to know it," says Davidowitz, whose firm does consulting for the retail industry. "If the consumer isn't petrified, he or she is a damn fool."

Davidowitz, who is nothing if not opinionated (and colorful), paints a very grim picture: "The worst is yet to come with consumers and banks," he says. "This country is going into a 10-year decline. Living standards will never be the same."
