Welcome to My Periodic Journal of Rants, Raves and Bits of Humor ( or how the world is seen and understood by me).
750 billion, 820 billion, 900 billion ! Does any one in Washington know how much the stimulus is going to cost or where it is going. They are debating a bill that consists of 600+ pages of spending and you can be certain none of them has read the whole bill.
Seems to me I remember trucks of ice rushed to help Katrina victims ending up parked in North Carolina melting, 1500 credit cards issued to FEMA workers to use for the Katrina victims and no records of how that was spent or pallets of cash sent to Iraq to help with rebuilding and no accounting or records of who spent it or where it went. who could forget the credit cards issued to the victims of Katrina being used to buy lap dances at a Houston strip club or large flat screen TV's.
I wonder why no one trusts the government to get the stimulus package right, after all they spent 750 billion in October to bail out banks and insurance companies and now the same banks and insurance companies won't tell Congress what they did with the money and worse the economy is still in a downward free fall.
To instill even more confidence the GSA Government Services Administration, the accounting and watch dog arm of the government could not find 1500 laptop computers issued to their employees.
Yes my friends I am sure more government intervention and more government spending is the answer to our economic situation which was created by individual and government overspending in the first place.
I would say " It is a bit more of the hair of the dog that bit you".
Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, I would say we have the best politicians money can buy.
God help us !
