Using scare tactics to push crap through congress that doesn’t address the real problems was a 700B mistake when Bush did it and now Obama/Pelosi are making an even bigger mistake.
If we actually had the money some of these programs may be worthwhile but now is not the time. The stimulus should only be for projects that can put the money to immediate use and hire people immediately. Like fix the infrastructure.
This is nothing more than borrowing money from China and Saudi Arabia to pay for special interest pork! Politicians borrowing money we don’t have to pay off lobbyists. It’s making McCain’s idea to give relief directly to homeowners look good.

All right, Ralph, I’ll go along with you not because I agree it is a good idea, necessarily, but to play “politics” with you.
If I said OK, I agree to killing the bailouts, if we’d all stipulate that mega-gobs of bailout money have already funded several landscaping, personal-chef/exerciser, and housekeeping small businesses, would you take McCaskill’s proposal tonight to limit max comp to a paltry $400K to any person in a company who has received any public funds, no matter when it happened, in exchange? These fuckers are paying RETENTION BONUSES to the same morons who crashed the bus. And these same people are wapping us in the face with their wanks, Ralph, you and me both, laughing their asses of all the way to the fucking golden parachute bank.
There aren’t even 20% of conservative economists who don’t understand we’re down to our last bullet. Plus, I’m not, and neither are you, Ralph, going to be fixing any potholes I’m slaloming past right now on every road in the world, repairing any bridges, bringing broadband nation-wide, and greening the economy with that fucking tax cut Republicans seem to think is the solution to every problem from losing your car keys to building high-speed rail networks. (a.k.a., Supertrains.)
Wealth spreading is a real deal, no matter who is in charge. Life, and its twin, politics, is all about deciding where it gets spread. Trickle up economics is finally getting people pissed off.
Beware The Man. That crazy motherfucking Communist, President and General Eisenhower warned us…
