These stimulus packages are scams. They are designs to kick in around 18 months or so from now, just before the next elections. These politians don't care about you. They only care about staying in office and in power.
Jason Whitlock, of the Kansas Star, put it so succinctly:
Politics, in my opinion, is a haven for dishonest people with no discernible skill other than smooth talking and deal-making.
Couldn't agree more. We need to throw the bums out, starting with the democrats, since they are the ones currently in power. Then we'll go on to Republicans who don't do our (meaning we the people) bidding.
Until then, as I've been saying for the last seveal months: Hang on to your wallet. The government is coming for you.
