Katy Perry, TV and Barack

Yesterday, sure as shootin', P Obama was on TV, AGAIN. Rather than bother to research how many times he has tubed-up since he took office, an estimate... 150 weeks x 4 = 600. More or less. The man is a definite camera hog. He will jabber about anything or nothing, any excuse will prompt talkin' to the folks. Barack is a modern communicator... Imagine Dwight Eisenhower doing this kind of stuff. But then again, DDE was bald and he had Crohn's disease and it was the fifties.

Jobs, that was the topic yesterday, the Jobs Bill not Steve Jobs (although Steve had died the day before, Maybe it should be amended to the Jobs Bill Clinton. If you look up clinton, it must mean schmoozer in some language or another. If B Obama could schmooze like Bubba, the Harvard man might begin to rival the Yalie's successes. But, alas... he can't.

Barack Obama wants Congress to take up and PASS his bill. After all, he presented it to joint meeting of Congress just a couple of weeks ago. Was that not auspicious? Yet the Congress has not moved a smidge on the Jobs Bill and frankly it looks dead at birth. BO, however, has not given up. In concert, his latest air adventure was an exhortation to the people to prompt their Congress-pawns to get on board. Silly Obama.

Called the American Jobs Act, here's the pitch.

President Obama's American Jobs Act will create jobs using ideas that have been supported by both Democrats and Republicans. Congress should pass right away to get the economy moving now. The plan would:
  • Create incentives for small businesses to hire and grow from now into 2012.
  • Make investments that would prevent layoffs of as many as 280,000 teachers, provide opportunities for long-term unemployed veterans, and put Americans to work rebuilding roads, railways, bridges, and schools in need of repair.
  • Implement the most sweeping reforms to the unemployment insurance system in 40 years to help those without jobs transition to the workplace.
  • Expand the payroll tax cut, cutting workers payroll taxes in half next year. This provision will provide a tax cut of $1,500 to the typical family.
  • Be fully paid for as part of the President's long-term deficit reduction plan.

Too bad, this is not the solution! It will not change a thing, at least a thing that matters. The MAJOR problem is unemployment as a symptom of under production and no real economic growth. Without an expanding tax base, the USA is borrowing its brains out to stay afloat. Even a powerful country can print only so much paper without punch...

The lack of production and growth is not new. Indeed, neither of the last two double term Presidents realized any real growth. Clinton (a ridiculous equities run) and Bush (a real estate boom with blown up valuations) "made" prosperity with smoke and mirrors. As for Obama, he's got nothing. In fact, he spent his first two years cleaning out the the messes of the previous 16 years. In short, he was doomed at the start. D-O-O-M-E-D...

So back to the AJA, it is a Band-Aid. And a small one at that. While a Band Aid might be appropriate for a scraped knee or a finger cut, a slice through the heart needs a surgeon. A Band-Aid...

From Wikipedia...

Band-Aid is a brand name for Johnson & Johnson's line of adhesive bandages and related products. It has also become a genericized trademark for any adhesive bandage in AustraliaBrazilCanadaIndia and the United States.[1]
"Band-aid" has also entered usage as a term for any temporary fix. (e.g. "Band-aid solutions were used to fix the leak.")
The Band-Aid was invented in 1920 by Earle Dickson, an employee of Johnson & Johnson, for his wife Josephine Dickson, who frequently cut and burned herself while cooking.

It is Friday...forget Barack and his tube-o-philia, forget the American Jobs Act. forget unemployment, YEOW, forget it ALL. Watch this, libate, watch it again, libate, and go have some fun!!! Libate...

Katy Perry è così caldo ora e Barack non è.
