Who is Obama kidding? Certainly not me ...

Obama said that contrary to some criticisms, there was no pork in the bill. "This bill does not have a single earmark in it."

Actually, it doesn't have any earmarks. But hey, lets not let things like accuracy get in your way...

Who needs earmarks when all of the pork is written directly into the bill?

These bills are going to do nothing for our country. There are numerous people and organizations predicting that the dow is going to go belly up this week. If that happens, tens of trillions of dollars will dissipate. Inflation will skyrocket upwards of 200%. Banks will close within a month, some immediately. You all will rely on your government more than ever, just as they want you to.

Obama should have used Dumbya-speak so that our Republican/Conservative friends would understand....

"This bill has been deporkified. The earmarkification has been reductified."
