In recent days, Jindal has displayed another leadership quality: ideological balance. He is highly critical of the economic theory of the stimulus package and turned down $98 million in temporary unemployment assistance to his state -- benefits that would have mandated increased business taxes in Louisiana. But unlike some Republican governors who engaged in broad anti-government grandstanding, Jindal accepted transportation funding and other resources from the stimulus -- displaying a program-by-program discrimination that will serve him well in public office. Jindal manages to hold to principle while seeing the angles...Ok, so I think that we should be very careful when we are talking about those Dangerous Human-Metaphour Chimera Experiments...

Americans are against, not for, tax cuts for the rich. Americans are against, not for, Great Depressions.</i>
