Stan Gibilisco

This president could cause the stock market to rise by 1,000 points next week. He could cause unemployment to go down to 8.5% by November 2012. He could simply get on national TV tomorrow and say, "I quit."

George Mason

KB; Industries that thrive increase employee pay according to production. This is meritocracy. The auto industry (UAW) like the government (AFSCME)pay increases only as age increases. This is gerontocracy. The only part of the government that operates as a meritocracy is the military (guess what part of the government Obama wants to take funds from). Companies that pay according to production and/or provide profit sharing have employees invested in the business and their own productivity. In a gerontocracy they are only invested in getting older and they tend to take an adversarial stance toward their employer. This is one of the problems with the auto industry (and other old model unionized industries).

I predict that O will offer another stimulus via the "compromise" bill just passed. These jobs will be for infrastructure (he has dropped the shovel ready rhetoric this time around) like the old WPA etc. He will be buying votes. Already doing it with the Hispanics and the anti-deportation stance. I love Stan's comment above; it's true!

Donald Pay

He'll offer stupid Republican ideas, as he always does, and the Republicans will turn them down because they realize their ideas are worthless.
