I have only written about it 20 or 30 times. It is borrowed money that is piling on the National Debt.

It is also a circumstance that we have not been in before, with failures of both the financial sectors and manufacturing sectors and more people unemployed that at anytime in history [percentage of statistical workforce] except the Great Depression.

So right now we have the choice of letting everything crash on its own or trying to buy our way out of a depression. The closest model is the Japanese' Lost Decade which failed to keep them from a Depression and they literally lost 13 years of economy.

So right now, to answer your question I think Berry's stimulus package is the credit card bill for Bush's Economic Doctrine that has come due. And it has a very high interest rate.

Somebody pays either way but in most states screwing your grandkids is considered incest.
Looks like we will be doing both.

If you thank you can or you thank you can't your right

Do you enjoy being raped by the government? Perhaps you would feel better if you were able to work 6 months for nothing?

So, you are saying that the government can improve our lives by buying our way out of a money crunch? Wow...makes sense now
