That is were the confusion was. I saw post 12 and the link but didn't see a thread with that name. I bet you were suggesting the Bipartisan Stimulus Package thread.

How are security, standards and education stimulative in any way in the short term? Infrastructure maybe, but no doubt the government will figure out a way to turn that into a losing proposition. The feds are going to spend for the aforementioned anyway, with or without a stimulus. That's their J-O-B.

Nuff Said.
That post had nothing to do with the Stimulus Package. That was general philosophy of government spending.
