    Paul Krugman is an economics professor. Today he won the Nobel Prize in Economics. He writes a column for the NYT.

    He, as a learned man, blames the banking crisis on 27 years of deregulation started by Ronnie boy. He especially faults Grahm and Greenspan for the current crash.

    He has a Nobel Peace Prize. I knew the reasons, his words just affirm them. Keep trying. I do not wish unemployment on my worst enemy, but ignorance in your case, is bliss

    It is critical that the 7 – 800,000 people who have and will exhaste(ed) their 26 weeks and 13 week extention remain supported by the unemployment system.

    Remain supported ? then it should kick in now !!!!

    not 2-3 months from now !!!

    Unfortunately it means whatever “they” want it to mean.
    I dont like it any more than you do.

    We just have to somehow stretch whatever we have left now or miraculously get employment.

    If you are paying a mortgage or car loan (if you are lucky enough to still have thoses 2 things) you might be able to defer a couple of months payments and just pay the interest (so you dont lose it all) Garage Sales, Rake peoples yards, handyman jobs, neighorhood babysitting, dog walking service, housesitting etc……

    I still am wondering…

    Is the House going to abort the HR 6867 bill they already passed to the Senate in favor of a new Stimulus bill?

    Does anybody know the answer?

    Some people are forever stuck on stupid. A vote for McInsane and Mooselini is a vote for the same old destruction we have had for the past 8 years…in fact worse.

    You don’t know much about McCain do you? He left his first wife for Cindy and her fortune. His first wife was in a terrible accident (She was a model) that left her disabled. Johnny Mac caroused around on her, including with Cindy (his current wife). McCain liked Cindy and her fortune, so he dumped his first wife and the rest is history.
    Johnny Mac is an amoral opportunist to the max. That’s just scratching the surface.

    THAT IS THE MOST INTELLIGENT QUESTION I’VE HEARD ALL DAY, AND IF I WAS A REPORTER IN THAT ROOM THIS MORNING, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WOULD HAVE ASKED HER!! I STILL CAN’T GET OVER THE FACT THAT WE HAD A CHANCE TO GET THIS PASSED 3 FREAKING TIMES. 1) IT COULD HAVE BEEN ATTACHED TO THE BAIL-OUT, 2) IT COULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THE VETO PROOF CR, AND 3) BUSH SAID PERSONALLY THAT HE WOULD HAVE INCLUDED UE ALONE, BUT THAT WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH FOR PELOSI. THAT’S WHAT PISSES ME OFF THE MOST. HER GREED!!! SHE IS SO OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY. DOESN’T SHE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE 800,000 PEOPLE WHO’S BENEFITS HAVE RUN OUT WHO NOW ARE IN THE STREET WITH ZERO AND CAN’T WAIT 3-MONTHS. THAT’S WHAT UPSETS ME THE MOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!
