    Don't know how old you are....but it was before Reagan destroyed our manufacturing base and the Reagan/Bush policies rewarded compnaies for shipping good paying goods overseas.
    If recycling money is such a great idea, then why isn't it working this time? Too much money has been spent on turtle tunnels, deer underpasses and researching the cocaine habits of monkies?

    Yes, but it also hires people to do it, and jobs, any kind of job, is what we need.

    The government can't create jobs. That's been proven over the past 18 odd months.

    $800,000 went to Africa to teach them how to wash their genitals.
    Feds Spent $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program | CNSnews.com
    The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.
    Perhaps we'll send a couple million to the EU to teach their women to shave their armpits and legs.

    WTF is wrong with turtle tunnels. You try walking across a street being 8" tall and not getting squashed

    You really believe lower taxes don't increase tax revenues??? It was a fact under Reagan:

    I always love it when people try to post these charts as proof that Trickle down economics works. However, you fail to take into account 2 huge things. First of all, the population and therefore total revenue increases every year as a result of new people in the population. However, ever bigger, you fail to address the fact that while Reagan cut taxes in half for the richest Americans, he doubled taxes on the middle class.

    Like all businesses, sometimes the government succeeds, sometimes not.

    How many times are you going to say that after being proven wrong countless times?

    If the government cannot create jobs, then everyone who works for the government, including the military doesn't have a job?

    What kind of stupid logic is that?

    the point that was obvious to most people was that government action doesn't create private sector jobs
