Picture of multipurpose/mlfun's old lady:


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I really hope a overall tax cut is included which will help those who still have a job and tax credits given to all businesses for capital investments which will drive recovery in the manufacturing sector.
Major infrastructure initiatives such as High Speed Rail, Power Grid modernization, mass transit improvements, space exploration program (Mars, Shuttle replacement) etc would be visionary as opposed to some of the pot hole patching projects in the current proposal.
Nice cut and paste. Do you know what that means and what the suggestion's ramifications are?

So who should spend the money to build and maintain infrastructure, provide security, determine standards or educate the population?

Speaking of faith based groups, here's another line of battle

Quote:
Conservative Groups Declare Obama's Stimulus Bill a War on Prayer - Presidential Politics | Political News - FOXNews.com
Democrats in Congress have declared war on prayer, say conservative groups who object to a provision in the stimulus bill that was passed by the House of Representatives last week.

The provision bans money designated for school renovation from being spent on facilities that allow "religious worship." It has ignited a fury among critics who say it violates the First Amendment and is an attempt to prevent religious practice in schools.

According to the bill, which the Democratic-controlled House passed despite unanimous Republican opposition, funds are prohibited from being used for the "modernization, renovation, or repair" of facilities that allow "sectarian instruction, religious worship or a school or department of divinity."

Critics say that could include public schools that permit religious groups to meet on campus. The House provided $20 billion for the infrastructure improvements, of which $6 billion would go to higher education facilities where the limitations would be applied.
