  • Have you been stimulated??


    A pessimist sees difficult in every opportunity ~ An optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty . Winston Churchill

    Let's break it down and see what our "big piece of the pie" amount to:

    American population: 330,483,530
    Stimulus bill: $2,000,000,000,000
    Dividing the cost by every person in America = $6,051.74.

    The Government could have given every person over $6,000, but instead will give $1,200 to each adult under a certain income

    Wanna know where the missing 96% of your tax dollars went?
    $300,000,000 Migrant and Refugee Assistance pg. 147
    $10,000 Per person for student loan bailout
    $100,000,000 NASA
    $35,000,000 JFK Center for performing Arts There is no question but what these are essential regardless of $300,000,000 Endowment for the Arts people possibly going hungry. Pelozi would not allow the bill to
    $300,000,000 Endowment for the Humanities pass without this 635 million. Oh, I forgot, she has a $26,000 refrigerator in her home!
    $435,000,000 mental health support
    $30,000,000,000 Department of Education stabilization fund
    200,000,000 Safe Schools Emergency Response to Violence Program
    $300,000,000 Public Broadcasting / NPR Definately an essential service; I am surprised that they can get by with just 300 million.
    $500,000,000 Museums and Libraries
    $720,000,000 Social Security Admin ($200,000,000 to help people, Balance is admin costs)
    $25,000,000 Cleaning supplies for the Capitol Building (I sh** you not it's on page 136)
    $7,500,000 Smithsonian for additional salaries
    $25,000,000 Additional salary for House of Representatives ($25,000,000 divided by
    435 members = $57,471 added to $174,000 salary = $231,492 per member. That must be fair; after all, they are the masters and we are their slaves!

  • Who did it to us?

    Why do we have a country defacite (sp)? Who started it, what did they do to us.
    If the government needed money, they should have asked the Americans as they did during WW2.
    Issued US saving bonds. We did not borrow money from Germany or Japan to fight a war against them.
    I was in grade school during WW2, If I got a dime 10cents I took it to school and bought a savings stamp. I took the stamp home and pasted it in a book. When the book was full $18.50 and at the post office I turned in for a war bond worth $25 at maturity.

    The politicians that did it to us shroud be tared and feathered and banished to the Aleutian Islands.
