Yes we will!

Milpitas votes to name road to landfill after Barack Obama: 'Republicans will have a field day'.

"The Milpitas City Council voted Tuesday night to honor the 44th U.S. President and rename a major roadway Barack Obama Boulevard. The proposal passed 3-2 and Milpitas Mayor Rich Tran was among those who opposed the new name for Dixon Landing Road — mainly because the road passes through an area of the city known for its putrid stench.

The eastern end of Dixon Landing Road runs through the city's Sunnyhills Community. In 1956 it became among America's first planned racially integrated neighborhoods under Mayor and civil rights leader Ben Gross.

But when the road heads west, it passes over Interstate 880 and leads to the Newby Island Landfill, a recycling and composting plant that's consider the source of the city's notorious odors. Bay Area motorists often get wafts of the stink zipping by the Dixon Landing exit on the freeway, and Milpitas residents have complained about the stink for decades."

It seems fitting since we are going to pay for his administration for a very long time. At first I just rolled my eyes at this, but if they put a road sign up with the dump in the background, you know it's going to show up here.

  2. .one of my friends commented on the story, saying this, "My concern with that is that I have seen more than a few articles on how the lenders do not seem to have learned the proper things from 2008"

  3. I have to admit - I don't like anything good or bad being compared to the years 2007/8 or 9. The first interest rate cut came in 2007. Those were not good years. Even good data being compared to those years makes me uneasy. Maybe I am wrong.
