Pork Free Stimulus

The lamestream media told you:

According to the inestimable economic wisdom of president Obama, despite his lack of any economics credentials whatsoever and a team of advisors who are all solidly Keynesians, a trillion dollars of pork debt is exactly what the economy needs to prevent the sky from literally falling on America. Please don't look behind the curtain at the $700 billion the feds have already given out, which had no measurable effect whatsoever, and besides, was given out by a different president we don't even trust.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

You've seen the coverage of the approximately $1.2 trillion debt scheme (including interest) pushed by Speaker Pelosi and President Obama that's being falsely labeled the "Stimulus Package," the "Recovery Package," the "Bailout Package," the "Economic Rescue Package," and other entirely misleading names.

Sadly, many politicians in Washington, DC really believe that driving our nation even deeper into debt and using our money for wasteful government spending boondoggles is the way to get us out of the current recession.

These political leaders don't realize that massive deficits, higher taxes, wasteful spending with money they don't even have and haven't taken from us yet, are primary reasons for the current recession.

A stunning true stimulus package emerged from the recently conclude state Libertarian Party convention in Phoenix.

"Declare a tax holiday for a week, month or year. Now THAT would stimulate the economy."

The idea that every worker in America would get a full paycheck, without federal "withholdings" (a euphemism for taking tax money before it is due), and face no sales or other tax when shopping, would create a rush at retail bigger than Christmas. Officials could not be reached to comment on the tremendously popular concept.




"Officials could not be reached to comment on the tremendously popular concept."

Yeah well, people would see what they actually make, before being robbed by the .gov. After the 'tax holiday' ends, much hilarity would ensue. Even the morons in DC know this.
