Stimulus Working Great: Unemployment Graph

Unemployment in the United States hit 9.8% in September, despite the $787 billion stimulus that a Democratic Congress passed without a single Republican vote in the House and only 2 in the Senate.

That is roughly 2 points higher than the 7.8% that the White House had promised for September if the stimulus package became law.

How’s that stimulus working for ya?!

    I just recently became Texas regional sales manager for a small company
    called HHOTek. They market green products which save money and reduce
    families’ carbon footprint. It has become part of my own financial
    recovery and my contribution to a fist in the eye of foreign oil.My
    association with this company has caused me to reevaluate where and how I
    spend because of a greener awareness. If we are to have financial recovery
    in this country we are going to have to do it ourselves. One individual,
    one community one municipality, one county, one state at a time. Just one
    of the products this company markets has the (proven 30 year track record
    of success) ability to reduce the fuel (Gas, lpg, propane, diesel, boiler
    fuels) consumption of a municipal, county, state, federal fleet by a
    whopping 22%or more, Its American borne, American made. Can you imagine
    the effect this would have nation wide in saving oil and reducing vehicle
    pollution by up to 70% ? All done by Americans for Americans with no cap
    and trade laws, carbon offset bs. Just us deciding to put our money where
    our mouth is and reduce our dependence on Foreign Oil. Oh yeah, it would
    cost a measly $239.(Undoubtedly less as volume sales increase.) per
    vehicle to do this, has a lifetime replacement guarantee, is transferable
    to another vehicle. Oh yeah, it would amortize, in the majority of fleets
    well within the first year. Go ahead and let the rest of the world abandon
    the dollar as the currency for buying oil. Lets reduce our consumption
    through existing technology so we don’t have to buy it from them. Lets
    reinvest in America’s legendary ability to lead and innovate. I quit my
    job in the oil industry to do this because it appealed much more to me to
    reduce the use of oil than to contribute to the cost of the infrastructure
    to produce it. It is a finite resource and production of it here in West
    Texas is our economic life’s blood. We need to make more judicious use of
    it. I saw in the local head office of a Large oil company, a map of our
    subterranean water table with a notation that it was projected to run dry
    by 2050. Water is a major factor in the production of oil, and the basis
    of all life. For me, I am saving as much carbon based energy as I can
    afford by being aware of my use and its long term effect. Like liberty, it
    starts at the grass roots level and goes from there. Join me won’t you?
