Obama admits some failure on government created jobs: "Shovel-Ready Was Not as Shovel-Ready as We Expected"

So much for having to get the stimulus passed right away so that we could get the immediate benefits in 2009.

President Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness met today in Durham, NC at Cree Inc., a company that manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting. One of the Council's recommendations to President Obama was to streamline the federal permit process for construction and infrastructure projects. It was explained to Obama that the permitting process can delay projects for "months to years ... and in many cases even cause projects to be abandoned ... I'm sure that when you implemented the Recovery Act your staff briefed you on many of these challenges." At this point, Obama smiled and interjected, "Shovel-ready was not as ... uh .. shovel-ready as we expected." The Council, led by GE's Jeffrey Immelt, erupted in laughter. . . .

JOHN-YOUR AGENGA ALIGNMENT FITS IN WITH WHAT KATHERINE AUSTIN-FITZ HAS BEEN SAYING FOR YEARS, NOW. THE RECOVERY MUST COME FROM THE BOTTOM-UPWARD. THERE IS NO MOTIVATION BY THE ELITE TO REFINANCE AND RESTRUCTURE THE WORKING CLASS AGENDA. WHAT THE ELITE CLASS DOES NOT REALIZE IS THAT MANY OF THE LITTLE SERVICES THAT WIRE THE INFRASTRUCTURE OF AMERICA TOGETHER-ARE THE MAJOR THINGS THEY DEPEND ON IN THEIR DAILY LIVES----THEY WILL DROWN WITH THE TITANIC SINKING ALSO! SO-IT BEHOOVES EVERYONE TO START OUT ON THE SMALL SCALE-AND SOLIDIFY FOOD RESOURCES-UPGRADE IN ANIMAL PRODUCTION, AND ENERGY SOURCE DIVERSIFICATION. THESE ARE POSITIVE STEPS BEYOND SURVIVALIST MENTALITY. YES-WE AT THE REVOLUTION ESPOUSE "CHANGE-OF GOVERNMENT"-BY FORCE, IF NECESSARY. HOWEVER. WE WANT GOOD PROGRAMS AND UPSTART INDUSTRIES FOR REBUILDING-FIRST-AND CONTINUING LONG AFTER WE SWEEP THE WORTHLESS POLITICIANS AND ELITE DROIDS ASIDE!

John-it is gonna be a looooooong summer of "SMALL POTATOES" news stories-each one begging to lead into something, anything, significant! The newscaster s throats are humming, but nothing usable is coming out to our ears. This is social stagnation at it's worst-and the people are way tired of listening to the drone and drivel of mindless political rhetoric from incapable human beings. There are answers for these problems-just-not from t-h-e-s-e people!
