Obama said today that the engineered financial crisis will turn into a "catastrophe" if the so-called stimulus bill isn't passed quickly. Nancy Pelosi said that "500 million" (I think she meant thousand) jobs will be lost every month until the bill is passed. (See video.) Of course these are blatant lies designed to instill fear, as the stimulus package won't do a damn thing except bring us closer to hyperinflation and the complete devaluation of the dollar (which is what they want). But it makes you wonder what tricks they might pull from their sleeves to ensure the bill is passed.
