US economy slowed, Congress keeps grandstanding

Now here's an example of why a new poll shows the American public's approval rate of the 'work' Congress is doing is down to 6%. Makes me wonder what that 6% sees that the rest of us don't!

NPR BREAKING NEWS: Economy Slowed Sharply In First Half Of 2011

The Commerce Department says the economy expanded only 1.3 percent in the April-June period -- its weakest pace since the recession ended. High gas prices and scant income gains forced Americans to sharply pull back on spending.

More at NPR.

Guess the GOP plan to regain the White House in 2012 is working against President Obama as it undermines the entire nation. A program to repair our crumbling infrastructure would greatly improve our unemployment problems, raise )tax) revenue, and put consumer monies into the economy which extending tax cuts for the rich can never do since they only pocket the change with a gleeful chuckle.

The story above shows some of the effects of the Republican Party--Tea Party alliance (such as it is) yet I suspect that the Freemasons who dressed as Indians and tossed pounds of tea into Boston Harbor wouldn't be as proud of what the current crop of slef-interested varmints are doing in 2011 as they might imagine in those wildest visionary dreams of theirs.

With today's Moon void-of-course (VOC) while in Cancer, it will be surprising if any real progress is made until tomorrow. And in effect are the twop midpoints we've discussed these last few weeks, each with one of the planets of the Enlightenment, aka, the Age of Reason. They are also the signature planets of the New World Order which Washington is trying so hard now to birth...any, all, or none may apply:

Jupiter/Neptune (the speculators, wastrels, and grand schemers) = Uranus (in Aries, the Utopians): reality v imagination; coming down to earth with a bump; sudden recognition of a difficult situation (ya think? which some of us have warned about financial breakdown all through Dubya's 8 years of spending, illegal wars, unfunded programs, and tax cuts for the rich. And here we are.)

Jupiter/NN = Neptune: indecision or vacillation; becoming sober again; disappointment.

Stocks are falling, too, so I guess the Utopians are having their NWO way!

President Obama will speak soon, says C-SPAN, from the White House (aka, the White Lodge) and from underneath a portrait of George Washington, one of our many Freemason presidents. I'll listen to what he has to say but only hope he'll manage to straighten out the sorry state that Washington politicians have brought upon the American people who have already sacrificed so much.

Mr. Obama begins speaking at 10:36 am edt for those who wish to set up a horoscope...first word: bipartisan. He wants a plan he can sign by Tuesday so, Good luck to us all.
