A new national poll indicates that nearly three out of four Americans are scared about the way things are going in the country today.
Seventy-three percent of those questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday say they’re very or somewhat scared about the way things are going in the United States. That’s six points higher than in an October poll.
Nearly eight in 10 say things are going badly in the country, with just 21 percent suggesting that things are going well. The survey also says that three out of four Americans are angry about the way things are going in the country. But three out of four questioned say that things are going well for them personally.

And the Democrats keep up their spending!
Congress is poised later this week to approve a $410 billion omnibus spending bill to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year, which ends Oct. 1.
House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence, R-Ind., called that bill “the largest increase in discretionary spending since the Carter administration.” He added that he’d be happy with the Democratic leadership punting the omnibus bill and allowing the government to continue to run at last year’s levels.
Pence noted, however, that the GOP has two “non-negotiables” on the budget — funding cuts for troops and tax increases.

Obama Taps Biden to Oversee Stimulus Package
Obama has turned to his own vice president to oversee implementation of the $787 billion economic stimulus package.
“The fact that I’m asking my vice president to personally lead this effort shows how important it is for our country and future to get this right,” he said.
Lord help us, the country is now in deep trouble with Biden at the helm. Biden is so dumb that he does not understand why Obama put him in charge of the economic stimulus package. Well I have news for you Biden, Obama will need someone to blame for its failure, you have been chosen by the GREAT ONE to fall for him!
And now here how States will spend stimulus money!
The state of Washington sent out $1 checks to the 250,000 food stamp recipients in the state.
A commenter notes: “Well bulk rate is about 26 cents. Envelop another 5-10 cents. Plus printing at 5-10 cents a copy. Plus handling. I’m sure [the cost to send the checks] was as much if not more then the food stamps.”
Now we really do need larrys to pick up the ….oh well might be to much for him to handle!
