Go Back To School Mr. President
Last night we were told by our new President that it was imperative that we have a bail out and have it now. Speed is more important than quality. This is just absolute BS in my book. The rule of Plans, and I have written many, is that the slower you go and the better you staff it in the development of a Plan the longer it will last and have a positive effect. Throw it together today and it won't last through tomorrow. When was the last time you bought something on impulse and it was a winner? Multiply the risk by a Trillion and you have something that has the potential to stink bad, quickly. Kind of like Dad, can I have the Credit Card to go to the Mall. What is it that you want dear one? OH nothing, I think we need to stimulate the economy.
Jeez, didn't you just go there and spend about 900 Billion?
Now, let me also say that if all you want to do is to float a bunch of Pork through that would not normally see the light of day, put it in a plan and call it a stimulus. Jeez, the time for a change is sounding like more and more of the old way of doing business with a built in turbo sending our money down the road. At least a few moderate Democrats and most of the Republicans are saying what the stimulus plan really is. PORK!, More PORK and PORK (OK, a little SPAM thrown in so it will make everyone happy). There is a part of the bill that includes 300 Million for a computer system. Want to bet that most of the computers are made overseas? Oh sure, Microsoft will get a good share for the software but at least 2/3rd will stimulate some one else's economy.
I'll bet that you don't remember the insistence by the President as a Candidate that Government needs to change the way they are doing business. No more revolving door of Senators becoming lobbyists and then back in Government. Do you know what Tom Daschle was doing when he didn't pay his taxes on the limo he thought was a gift? The sad part is that Barry just seems immune to the truth. I guess I should have known that if the head of the Democratic party thinks 500 million people are going to lose their jobs (There is just a little over 300 Million Americans) and that Joe Biden thinks that FDR delivered his fire side speeches over TV there is wiggle room at the top for more lies. I told you I was going to watch. You didn't think I was going to sit on my hands and not yell like Missouri beat KU. They Did? Yes and I yelled then too.
