"Gold gets dug out of the ground in Africa, or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head."
- Warren Buffett
There's a few token "rebate" checks being thrown towards the poor and stupid to make it appear like the government is taking care of the little guy.
The rest of the pork is disguised. If there were true transparency in this administration of "change & hope", then each earmark would be itemized, with the sponsers name attached.
New administration, same old bull****.
Pain can be such a beautiful thing
But it doesn't end there; on top of all this nonsense is a constant fear mongering in order to rationalize/justify the porkulus. This is hardly encouraging, uplifting or likely to inspire confidence in the marketplace.
If this is the change OTHERS wanted, it certainly is going the WRONG direction.
