How to stop the stimulus bill: ask tough questions (and I'll help)

If you want to stop the stimulus plan, the most effective way is to publicly embarrass one of its nationally-known supporters on video by asking them a series of tough, "prosecutorial-style" questions. When uploaded to Youtube and similar sites, that video would get hundreds of thousands or millions of views. It would have an impact on the career of the person who was asked those questions, and it would send a message to the others.

That's easy enough to say, but the problem is finding people willing to do anything like that. Instead, many incorrectly think that simply ranting in echo chambers is going to have an impact.

If you're in Washington DC and you can do something, I'll even help you edit your questions for maximum impact. Or, see my guide to asking questions.

If you aren't in DC or you don't want to ask questions, then at the very least contact major bloggers and urge them to repeatedly ask their visitors to get out there and ask questions.

I know this is going to be difficult: I've been unsuccessfully urging people to do this for two years now. But, maybe the stimulus is bad enough to finally get people to do something.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, those who get enough traffic to make something like this work are just paper tigers (e.g., Glenn Reynolds), or do things in the wrong way (e.g., Melanie Morgan). Please take the time to write a major blogger, such as Instapundit, and suggest that they actually do something for a change.

DON'T LET STIMULUS PASS WITHOUT E-VERIFY Harry Reid comments on the Stimulus Bill and illegal aliens, "This legislation is directed toward people who are legal in our country. This bill creates jobs for people who are lawfully in the country".............reported Jan. 29, 2008 by July Hirsfield Davis, Assoc. Press writer. HOW CAN HE VERIFY THIS WILL HAPPEN??????????? Meanwhile E-Verify, enacted into law in the previous administration is "PUT ON HOLD UNTIL MAY" by the Democrats who now have a majority in Congress to pass the Stimulus for illegals. Let see how this plays out in Reid's home state of Nevada WHICH CURRENTLY HAS A 9.1% UNEMPLOYMENT RATE (legal or illegal workers...Nevada is not able to make the distinction. A law enacted in Nevada in 2007 called for fining employers of illegal aliens was declared unenforceable 6 months later by the Nevada State Attorney Generals office. Their reason "immigration is an issue for the federal government, not states." So now Nevada's illegals are thrown back into the lap of the federal government and to Harry Reid who in January 2009 in an interview with THE HILL stated I believe in our Constitution which states 3 separate but equal branches of government when he also said he didn't work for Obama but with him. SO NOW HARRY, THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT. What is a poor senator who has stated he wants to be in office at least until 2015 to do? Why throw stimulus into his state and keep those illegals there to vote for him. Here is Nevada's WISH LIST....PLEASE REMEMBER Nevada cannot/willnot stop the following projects from hiring illegal aliens. The following, provided by the White House press office, is what the plan offers Nevada: Creating or saving 36,300 jobs over the next two years. Jobs created will be in a range of industries from clean energy to health care, with over 90% in the private sector.

Providing a making work pay tax cut of up to $1,000 for 960,000 workers and their families. The plan will make a down payment on the President's Making Work Pay tax cut for 95% of workers and their families, designed to pay out immediately into workers' paychecks.

By creating a new $2,500 partially refundable tax credit for four years of college, this plan will give 3.8 million families nationwide - and 32,000 families in Nevada - new assistance to put college within their reach.

Will try, but looks like Obama just takes questions from losers who want govt handouts, like the 19-year-old burger flipper in Florida who the MSM has jumped on.

Yeah, geez, why the hell would we want to create jobs and repair/upgrade our infrastructure??? That money could be used for much more important things, like paying Haliburton to overcharge our Soldiers, right? LMFAO!!
