I love my job but sometimes I wonder about the people I work with. They aren't stupid, but when I hear statements like "The government should do something" they should sound like morons.
And then I'm called negative when I remark that the government will only make it worse.
The only thing the "government" can do to "help" is to cut taxes and get out of the way. All this so called "stimulus" spending isn't going to create jobs and it isn't going to help anyone. It's going to create more dependence and suckling on the teats of government welfare. It's going to create more federal interference in state issues (did you hear that the state of Illinois won't get any assistance if Blago is still governor???). It's going to help the grass grow.
Not a single private sector job will be created by this massive pork laden spending bill. Pet projects and payoffs to lobbies are there, but no real help for private businesses or individuals.
What did people expect when they elected our new Socialist in Chief?
This bill is worse than FDR's spending. At least the New Deal built roads and planted trees. Of course it paid artists to paint and write too, but it also got things done. This bill does NOTHING. Except take our money and redistribute it to those on the government dole and create an even larger deficit for our children and grandchildren.
It was really nice to have two full days off and away from the news this last weekend. I was much happier. :)
