    One big worry for big government lovers who are pushing for Obama’s stimulus plan to include more government spending and less tax cuts is that “there’s a limited supply of ‘shovel-ready’ projects that can be started soon enough.

    Thanks to mother nature this worry is now entirely misplaced. As the pictures below indicate there are thousands, if not millions, of shovel ready projects across the United States today. And when it snows again, all these jobs will be re-created all over. So hurry up Congress and get these shovelers some checks!!!

      I believe that there's a lot of other stuff being shoveled out these days, if you know what I mean…

      The shovels are being used by the next president and the current Congress. Thy are shoveling pipe dreams and stinky stuff. The thing that is so bad about this, people are ready to eat it all, do not think for themselves, let the government think for them. Sheep lead to slaughter

      Just look at the people shoveling all that frozen white "anthropomorphic ("man-caused") Global Warming", otherwise known as “snow”!

      Not to mention the growing Polar Ice Caps, the both "record" and "record breaking" "freezing" and "below Zero" temperatures all over the globe (including in the U.S), including the places which haven't been as cold in 30 years or more, and more things than those!

      All such things caused by "anthropomorphic ('man-caused') Global Warming", no doubt, as the "(man-caused) Global Warming/Climate Change" Left, and their willing accomplices in academia, the media, and etc, have already told us. So, what they tell us must be true, right?

      Well, if that's right, then we must learn and remember such Orwellian “new speak” (a.k.a. “Political Correctness”), and, (in true “1984” Orwellian style), condemn and dismiss as "dangerous", "antiquated", "archaic", "out-dated", and “old speak”/”Politically Incorrect”, etc, any ideas, speech, or actions against such Leftist insanity, lest we find ourselves being “tried and convicted, Neurenburg-style” (as one minion of “[man-caused] Global Warming” has already demanded), for our “infidelity”/”Political Incorrectness”, and “re-educated” by “Big Brother” Leftists/government elitists and their minions (which is already happening in the schools and colleges)!

      Ah yes… just look at those people having to shovel all that frozen, white "(man-caused) Global Warming", otherwise known as "snow"!

      As have learned, water vapor accounts for some 93% plus of all greenhouse gases. I guess snow is one way to get it out of the atmosphere to give all mankind a healthier planet.

      Mike is correct about what is being shovelled – I'm grateful to only have snow removal to contend with . . . 'til the 20th.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
