Goodbye America ...

... we'll see you when the pork has run out:

US President Barack Obama has signed his hard-fought economic stimulus plan in Denver, after Congress approved the $787bn (£548bn) package last week.

Speaking at a signing ceremony he said it was "the most comprehensive pork-barrel politics
sweeping recovery package in our history".

The plan is aimed at saving or creating 3.5 million jobs and boosting consumer spending and rebuilding infrastructure, along with loads and loads of fatuous Democrat pointless spending that will fuck the American economy for the next decade -- at the very least.

Republicans say its tax cuts are insufficient, and that the economy will be saddled with debt for years to come.

You and me both, baby.

A little bird told me that the Giant Pork Barrel bill also repeals the Clinton Welfare Reforms, ie the five-year lifetime limit on receiving benefits.

Those reforms were widely credited with preventing (or lets be honest - minimising) the rampant growth of the dependent underclass in the US. Pretty good for a Democrat, really.

So wtf is Obama up to? Perhaps he hasn't read about Alfie Patten.

Please don't think to harshly of us when we reach 3rd world status and make Kenya look good by comparison.
