TGIF, The Political Circus Edition - Make It Fast, Make It URGENT

The level of American's naivete and gullibility are endearing qualities. They are part of our culture's charm. Except when we are circling the drain.

Don't take any wooden nickels was a popular saying back during the Great Depression. It was an admonishment to the huckleberries - the country rubes, not to be duped by the city slickers. It's still good advice today. Basically, don't let yourself be cheated or duped by fast talking hucksters.

I watched the President's speech given to the joint session of congress. Presenting the overview of his new bill - The American Jobs Act. During President Obama's, he repeated pass this bill 17 times, without explaining specifically, what the bill would entail. How much "The American Jobs Act" would cost or how it would be paid for. The President expressed the urgent need to pass a bill, that he won't be explaining the specifics of, the "nickles and dimes" for a couple more weeks.

President Obama told Congress it's time to "stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy."



If this bill needs passed so urgently, why hasn't it been given to both branches of congress to read? The current price tag of "The American Jobs Act" is 437 billion dollars. Remember, don't take any wooden nickles ;)

Urgent
You're not shy, you get around
You wanna fly, dont want your feet on the ground
You stay up, you wont come down

You wanna live, you wanna move to the sound.....

You play tricks on my mind
You're everywhere but you're so hard to find
You're not warm or sentimental
You're so extreme, you can be so temperamental.......

You say its urgent
Make it fast, make it urgent
Do it quick, do it urgent
Gotta rush, make it urgent
Want it quick
Urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, emergency
So urgent, emergency
Emergency... emergency... emergency...
It's urgent...........
