Take Your President-Elect-to-Work Day! Obama Tours Factory

Bringing back memories of life on the campaign trail, Barack Obama emerged from his stints in Chicago, Hawaii, and Washington, to meet with factory workers in Ohio. Obama toured a wind turbine factory, and also held a townhall meeting with the workers to discuss the economy and job creation.

By heading to the Ohio factory, Obama was looking for more than a photo op. He wants Congress too pass a two-year economic stimulus plan to address the crisis. He told the workers: “We’re looking to create good jobs that pay well and won’t be shipped overseas.” As for how, yesterday the House of Representatives unveiled its $825 billion economic recovery plan, which would include $550 billion in spending and $275 for business and family tax cuts.

Considering the high unemployment rate, and news today that Circuit City's closure will cost 30,000 more jobs, let's hope Obama has some good ideas.

Mich, I think you are both. One is just after a damn good waxing job and supportive undergarments.

That is a god-awful picture. His mouth looks part sharpei.

TrueSong, those suspicious people are correct, we're the same person. But here's the trick, am I the full-bearded young man on Org's profile, or am I the petite young lady in my lookbook? Riddles of the universe, my friends. And, of course, Dear Leader.

"I wish I could be all cool and aloof about people on the internet, but I spend my time making up alternate identities so I can ask people what they think of me and get into private groups." That's odd, Org. I thought you spent your time coming up with witty one-liners. As long as we're being confessional, I'm actually Kim Jong-Il. I signed on to Sugar to disseminate my Communist beliefs to the vulnerable Western masses. Also, I'm not feeling so good lately, so I have a lot of time to myself. Oh, and from now on I would like to be addressed as "Dear Leader." Thanks.

That's funny since I'm sure there are a few conspiracy theorists convinced you and Mich are one and the same. I don't know how to prove otherwise without inviting y'all into my home to view my cache. Maybe I'll just start taking credit. I am true song, harmony, haus, gs, AND org. And citizen.

Here I go...walking away, head down, sorrowful look..."No one likes me, no one at all..."...*kicks a pebble*... Anyway, I was hoping for something a little more clever, sarcastic even. The only response I could muster up was 'is this a joke?'

Saying something like that to someone just seems completely pointless. Like that person is going to be like, "Okay, I'll go..."

I see your point. Ha, I got told earlier to 'go away' in another blog thread around here. It was slightly amusing...hugely lame, on the other hand.

I just meant that I don't say things like... "You're a big stupid moron" or "Go to bed" or "Just go away" That's all. Just wanted to clarify.

There's a mighty fine line between not wanting to antagonize and just calling someone a name(whether jokingly or not) and not caring if it upsets them. There's a certain degree of hostility involved. Either way, I hardly give a crap. That was the point of my comment. I, like the rest of you, like to say my piece but I actually don't care if I'm seen in a favorable or unfavorable light around here.

Now, indie, that doesn't mean I want to antagonize people on purpose. Just that if I say my opinion or, you know, jokingly call someone a crackpot, it doesn't bother me if they get upset.
