Stimulus and Failure

The American People, usually complacent, are slowly waking up to what's happening in Washington and it's not a pretty picture.

The near facist $2 trillion healthcare plan looming combined with a failed program to deal with the economy and Barack Hussein Obama's "Hope & Change" that translates to "Collectivize and Nationalize" is depressing not only for us, but for our posterity as well.

The sad truth is that creating government jobs merely puts a burden on those with non-government jobs who will be taxed more. The $800 billion stimulus package was not designed to stimulate anything. It was a political pay off to the hacks who contributed to Barack Hussein Obama's political victory. Typical Chicago politics...

For independent consultants, like me, it has meant a complete restructuring of the way I do business, how I find and service clients, etc. If I loose work, I am not counted by the bureau of labor statistics toward the official unemployment rate. I simply have to go it alone, uncounted and unmourned by the economy.

The solution to the problem is for the government to shrink in size, put less burden on the people, and allow the marketplace to create jobs. Thus, a victory is a victory without allowing the Federal government to take a bow. And the Washington Bureaucrats won't let that happen.

Why does there have to be so many people in government to begin with? One to watch the other either: a) do nothing or b) to watch the other one screw up royally? Makes no sense to me whatsoever.

It's like the guys here that work for the city, one guy works while five stand there and watch him.

The current administration, including the president and his Stalinist democratic congress, MUST be what the people want. On the other hand, what they wanted and what they got may be different things.

LL, they can't wait to redistribute your unfair wealth.
