NO

Re: Do You Approve of the Job President Obama is doing so far?

I was just reading on the local news (for WA) that the fed. stimulus $$ here were going to go to improving roads; and that it would create 3,300 jobs.  I really don't know how that is going to make a difference in our household.   And how would that help some person laid off from like Microsoft or WAMU bank, I highly doubt a those persons are qualified to work on roads???  And 3,300 jobs, that's hardly a big number.  So I guess I just don't understand the purpose.  (Sorry the type just went to italics mid comment)

Rachel has asked me the same thing about how someone "white collar" professions are helped by building projects....The stimulus creatres "shovel ready" jobs, those are the people in the hard hats out their building the bridge, but building a bridge also requires architectural firms, environmental studies, computer sensor work, etc...we often think of just the "hard hatters", but there are plenty of other jobs created by such stimulus....

You have a point.

It's now set up to allow non-logged-in users the ability to vote. That's a change from what we've done in the past. If the buttons aren't showing up, though, it's probably because somebody at your computer (maybe you, maybe not) already voted or some other Interweb Funkiness (technical term).

Re: Do You Approve of the Job President Obama is doing so far?

When I looked at it last night (about midnight, after work) there were no buttons and I assumed it was because I didn't log in, so thanks for making it easy this morning.  I like "Interweb Funkiness".  And I just noticed that the smileys are back, too. Smile

Yahoo has an article including reactions from people who have been hit hard during all this. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090225/ap_on_go_pr_wh/obama_s_fireside_chat  (or click on news, scroll to US News and click on "21st Century Fireside Chat")  -Kay
