I think we can all--whether Democrat, Republican, or Independent; whether liberal, conservative, or middle of the road--we can all agree that government has gotten out of hand.
They throw around money like a child at the beach throwing sand. Take the three recent stimulus bills. The theory behind them was that spending more money would stimulate the economy, thus bringing us out of this recession we've been in for the last 4 years. We won't get into economic theory here, though. I'll just say that the vast majority of these multi-billion dollar (and that's YOUR money they're spending, mind you) stimulus bills has been just completely wasted. That's money we don't have, mind you.
It's pretty obvious that the wanton waste has gone beyond ridiculous. It's gotten to be absurd. I mean, seriously????
Penis washing lessons????
For men in Africa. Penis washing lessons. And just how is this supposed to stimulate OUR economy, pray tell?
Sheesh. I'm going to the football game. At least that's something that makes sense.
