In his first weekly address since being sworn in as the 44th president of the United States, President Barack Obama discusses how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan will jump-start the economy.

“This is not just a short-term program to boost employment,” he said. “It’s one that will invest in our most important priorities like energy and education; health care and a new infrastructure that are necessary to keep us strong and competitive in the 21st century.”

The Administration is still working with Congress to refine the plan, but in the address, President Obama lays out the key priorities. He goes into detail, noting that the plan will update our electric grid by laying more than 3,000 miles of transmission lines; weatherize 2.5 million homes; protect health insurance for more than 8 million Americans in danger of losing their coverage; secure 90 major ports; renovate 10,000 schools; and triple the number of science fellowships.

Tanks In My Memory Goodbye George!–Video January 18, 2009

Here are the lyrics for this video. Wonderful!

Thanks for the memory
The hell you put us through
Deserves a big fuck you
From Bush v Gore
To endless war
It really was a coup
So fuck you, George Bush

Thanks for the memory
You failed and so much more
Approvals through the floor
You are the first at being worse
Than all who’ve come before
How inept you are

Yes it was Hell while it lasted
To see our country so detested
And how is it you’re not arrested
It was not fun
So much harm done

And tanks in my memory
They rumble through my dreams
Like Abu Bhraib screams
The countless lies
As good men die
America got reamed
How awful it was

Think you’re the ministry
Get on your knees and pray
Make Terrie Schiavo stay
The word of God
You Christian fraud
Isn’t yours to say
How ghoulish it was

Goodbye let’s make it forever
With our place in history reserved
With such failure it’s really deserved
Just make my day
Go far away

Sank the economy
Deregulation sprees
Send factories overseas
Export the jobs of working slobs
Drive them to their knees
How bankrupt you are

Emptied the treasury
Cut taxes for the rich
Financial bait n’ switch
A costly war
As Bailouts soar
You really found your niche
You fucked us George Bush

I was an average worker
Then my job, house and wife went away
But my credit card debt’s here to stay
No bankruptcy
To set me free

Homeland security
The Towers that fell down
New Orleans left to drown
Read My Pet Goat
Watched bodies float
You really are a clown
How clueless you are

How’s this for victory
From shock and awe TV
To leashed depavity
The dead are hid
No contracts bid
Bin Laden still runs free
You punk ass George Bush

Your Preemptive war was folly
World sympathy soured to fury
The World Court should next be your jury
So many died
You satisfied?

Right-wing philosophy
The garbage that they spew
To benefit the few
Eradicate
This cult of hate
We’re giving you the shoe
All toether once more

U.S. Bushectomy
It’s time for us to cut
This boil from our butt
His public life
Under the knife
Bye George there goes one nut
So fuck you
FUCK YOU
GEORGE BUSH

Analyst: Franken, Coleman may battle into February December 23, 2008

A Minnesota Supreme Court justice haspredicted “an extended legal contest” in the Minnesota senate race, no matter which way the final recount between Democratic challenger Al Franken and incumbent Normal Coleman goes, and election analyst Nate Silver of 538.com agrees.

“There are any number of grounds on which you can challenge an election,” Silver told MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer on Monday. “So far, people have been pretty well behaved, but if Al Franken wins by 12 votes, Norm Coleman will probably sue. If the reverse is true, then Al Franken will probably sue. We may not have a senator seated until mid-January or February.”

Franken is currently leading by 250 votes, but Silver believes that Coleman is likely to gain about 200 votes as challenged ballots are resolved, while Franken may get back 50 from the absentee ballots.
