"Performance Issues" & Political Ranting.

It seems like most Americans agree that this stimulus business is getting out of hand. One of my favorite conservative bloggers calls this latest stimulus bill a Crap Sandwich. She's right. It bears a striking resemblance to a bottomless goodie bag with no real help for the average American.

What do I think Americans need? I certainly don't know everything, but I think they need someone to look them in the face and say, "Times are tough and they will be for at least another year. Save your money and don't buy stuff you don't need. Make your house payments - and yeah, I know it's tough but maybe take a second job if you need to. You borrowed the money and it's your responsibility to pay it back. Clip coupons and shop sales. Hey, maybe even give up your vacation this year. You lost your job? I'm truly sorry and it stinks. Maybe you'll have to take a job in a lesser field just to get by for a year or so - because that's what hard working Americans do. Taking tax dollars and pumping it into the economy to try to fix it won't do much good. In fact, it will probably do more harm than good in the long run. So don't look to the government to fix things for you. It's not their job. It is your duty to be responsible and hard working. You are an American and this country was built on hard work, not entitlements and government hand-outs. Ride out the economic storm. You (and probably your children who are watching you) will be a better person for it."

All economies have performance issues at one time or another and they generally correct themselves without intervention. I think this little commercial for STIMULIS - the drug boasting to help with economic "performance issues" is clever. Listen closely for the list of possible side effects!
