    I understand the point of the thread is the Stimulus Bill, NOT the Recovery Act, NOT your ASSumptions on how Republicans might vote, and NOT your silly assumptions. Perhaps you should read the OP again so you'll remember the topic of this thread.

    Now........ please explain the meaning of this sentence........

    It makes absolutely NO sense.

    If you believe republicans will do differently in power, you're a tool. Nothing more. Not sure i can say it clearer. History informs the future.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I never said they would. You are battling a straw man.

    The topic of this thread is the absurd cost of the STIMULUS PACKAGE passed by Obama and the Dems in Congress.

    If you wish to discuss the topic of the thread, go ahead and I'll respond. I will not respond any longer to your lame attempts to bait people into off-topic discussions. .

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I like the cartoon. What was the cost of materials and machinery used to make it? What was it's value after completed? Did the workers earn enough to buy stuff?

    I hope you see the stupidity of this simple calculation, I really do.

    I have a moniker -pbrauer- I put my real first name as a convenience on my avatar for those who want to use it, either of those two are acceptable as well as PB. I think petey is demeaning and I won't accept it from you anymore.

    I don't have an actual number, but the calculation by the Weekly Standard is stupid. I am surprised anyone buys that junk, they must think their readers don't have a functioning brain.

    So you have no rebuttal other than "it's stupid". How can anyone argue with that?

    $278,000 per job..........

    ......not enough to get a peep of outrage from the Left......some of them still sing their PORKULUS praises to boot.....

    $500,000 per job....?

    $1,000,000 per job....?

    $ One Billion dollars.....per job......?

    ....I wonder what amount it would take for Democrats to show just a little outrage......maybe question their political beliefs in the complete lie and utter fraud that is Liberalism.
