    Well, then that isn't creating wealth, that's a net loss. If you invest 1 dollar and create 85 cents of wealth you didn't create anything. You lost.

    I know, don't worry, I agree with you.

    Your Stimulus Dollars at Work

    Do you people realize, that if the Obama administration would have taken that $157 billion, split it up, and simply given it to the 3 million people who have lost their jobs since Obama took office, that would have given each of them $52,600 a piece... That's an entire years wages.

    We've had one of these signs up by our house for months. It just sits there and nothing happens.

    I laugh everytime I drive by, because it pretty much sums up the stimulus. Then again, I'm sure that putting up the sign created or saved five jobs, and the one that crew put up down the road created or saved another five jobs, etc. etc.

    Vandalize it and create a job to clean it.

    There's one near my home. They dug up a street that had nothing wrong with it.

    This was my face when they started talking about creating the current 'stimulus':



    Endangered frogs and turtle crosswalks?

    I can't even facepalm hard enough, Congress. Not nearly hard enough.

    OMG, you don't know how many times I've wanted to! Maybe just add a little carboard sign under it that reads, "Citizen Taylor. Putting America back to work with equal effictiveness for a trillion dollars less. Where's my Nobel Prize?"

    If you could just get Fox to cover that you might make some publicity off it too!

    Don't underestimate the importance of turtle crosswalks. Isn't it obvious how they make life better?
