Too Dumb to Thrive
Absolutely amazing poll results from CNN today about the $787 stimulus package: nearly three out of four Americans think the money has been wasted. On second thought, they may be right: it’s been wasted on them...
Indeed, the largest single item in the package–$288 billion–is tax relief for 95% of the American public.
This money is that magical $60 to $80 per month you’ve been finding in your paycheck since last spring...
...Not a life changing amount, but helpful in paying the bills.
Just for grins, Joe, why not multiply that stimulative $75 a month by, oh, 200 million taxpayers? Gee, this is complex: $75 times 12 months in a year... carry the one... hold on, that's... $900. And let's give the Democrats the benefit of the doubt and say that 200 million Americans are actually working. That's comes to... $180 billion.
So you're at least a hundred and eight billion shy, Joe, even with my generous math. Maybe it went to one of those zip codes that doesn't exist. Or a public sector union. Or a worthy cause like "community organizing".
The next highest amount was $275 billion in grants and loans to states. This is why your child’s teacher wasn’t laid off…and why the fire station has remained open, and why you’re not paying even higher state and local taxes to close the local budget hole...
You mean the budget hole driven by public sector unions that are bankrupting cities and states -- the ones won't even re-negotiate or cut salaries to help salvage their local budgets?
You mean the budget hole encouraged by Democrats who revel in eradicating competition and crushing childrens' dreams? The way they work tirelessly to defeat school choice, which would increase educational opportunities while reducing costs?
I guess we're too stupid to understand all of that really hard stuff, Joe.
It is impossible to be a citizen if you don’t make an effort to understand the most basic activities of your government. It is very difficult to thrive in an increasingly competitive world if you’re a nation of dodos.
Gee, Joe, I thought I read that the average government employee is now taking home a compensation package nearly double that of the average private-sector worker?
Those kinds of basic activities, Joe?
You can almost visualize the drool gumming up Klein's keyboard as he secreted this pathetic paean to his Democrat overlords. A Democrat leadership, by the way, that is in so far over its head it needs scuba gear.
The bureaucrats, the public sector unions and the trial lawyers are ripping Americans off and Joe here is telling us we're not paying enough.
No, Joe, the real dodos are the legacy media propagandists that publish state-approved press releases straight from the mouths of Axelrod and Emanuel. And judging by the circulation of your noxious rag, it won't be long before you're officially on their payroll.
