Whistle Blower to Oversee Stimulus Money

The Obama administration will be appointing a whistle blower to oversee the deployment of the Stimulus money. Wow!

President Barack Obama plans to announce Monday a former Secret Service agent who helped expose lobbyists' corruption at the Interior Department as his pick to oversee the $787 billion economic stimulus plan.

Obama is set to name Earl Devaney as chairman of the new Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board, an administration official said Sunday. Vice President Joe Biden also will be given a role coordinating oversight of stimulus spending.

Now my question, as notorious outsourcers like IBM and G.E. lobby and even run TV ads to get a piece of the pie in large contracts....will they award them to smaller corporations who hire U.S. citizens, do not labor arbitrage or incorporate offshore to avoid taxes?

Raise this up as an issue for lord knows U.S. citizens need those jobs.

Not a chance

Until we have separate currencies for every city- or maybe even every neighborhood- we will not see sub-national corporations get anything at all.

I'm convinced that the real reasons for the imposition of a central bank and the dollar standard was to destroy state's rights and local power.

Maximum jobs, not maximum profits.
