???... Huh?

What am I missing? Obama makes a major speach on Health care, and the stock market drops. Is it connected? I don't get it.

I wonder if the unemployment numbers cover the people that have just plain said "Too Hell with it."

I had hoped by now that I would see some "stimulus money" floating around. Do you have any in your pocket yet?

Less than 2% of the "Stimulus" funds have even been ALLOCATED, Ernie. Why did it have to be passed in such a big hurry? No reason, except one person demanded it. It's a huge giant colossal JOKE. A boondoggle. A burden on future generations. The 'generational theft act.' Voted on and passed without a single person even knowing what they were voting on or for.

It's No wonder we don't have any confidence in our government.

Obama insisted that the stimulus bill be passed by a certain date, then HE sat on it until he could fly Air Force One to Colorado to sign the bill in front of his Colorado groupies.

I had to wonder why he thought that we would not see that his action was pretty much the same as the auto exects flying to Washington.

I think they only count the people who are on unemployment insurance. I'm probably wrong.

We have. We were called by our mortgage holder, B of A, and offered a new loan at 4.75% bringing our house payment down from $1,100 to $759!!! I've been stimulated! I hope you get stimulated soon Ern.

I've heard that's how they do it. How else could they?

The wifey got a letter from the U.S. Treasury a few months ago saying she'd be getting a check for $250.00 as part of that stimulus thing, since she's on disability. They said it would come in May. Unless it slipped in to our bank account somehow, I don't believe we ever got it.

Those stimulus checks went into our accounts, we got ours AND I BET Ernie got his too. so thank God he's been stimulated.

B of A is now everyone's bank. We all own it now. I like the look of that interest rate, Bunny.
