You Scratch His

He'll scratch yours.

Apparently the (so called) "Stimulus" bill includes tax relief ... but not for regular working stiffs like you and me. Nope.

These tax cuts benefit those who propped up "The One's" campaign with millions of dollars in donations.


$246 million has been earmarked in tax breaks for movie studios that want to purchase film equipment, such as movie cameras and film.


So the liberals don't believe in tax cuts for the rich ... unless those rich are also liberals. Tax cuts for thee but not for me.

I guess it's time to stop working on hop on the welfare train ... since that has also been started back up. In a relatively sneaky and obtuse way.

...thanks to the simple phrase slipped into the legislation, the new "stimulus" bill abolishes the limits on the amount of federal money for the so-called Emergency Fund, which ships welfare cash to states.

"Out of any money in the Treasury of the United States not otherwise appropriated, there are appropriated such sums as are necessary for payment to the Emergency Fund," Democrats wrote in Section 2101 on Page 354 of the $819 billion bill. In other words, the only limit on welfare payments would be the Treasury itself.

"This re-establishes the welfare state and creates dependency all over the place," said one startled budget analyst after reading the line.

Why do I bother working and saving?

This should not surprise you. Democrats are all for welfare and programs. That's their voter base.

You can hold you head up. That's why you continue to work and save. I too can hold my head up. I've earned everything I have and I'm not going to apologize to one single person either.

Have a terrific weekend. Off to the boat for us. Big hug. :)

You have got to be kidding. The more I hear about what is in that thing, the more angry and frustrated I become.
