Simple Minds Think Alike, Too

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." ~ Albert Einstein

The reason I haven't posted lately is because the majority of news stories lately have been about Obama's stimulus package. I haven't found much else worthy of comment.

And I am not, nor have I ever been, an expert on economics.

I have been trying to make sense of this whole thing, and I have to admit, I can't. I have been trying to view this stimulus package through the eyes of Obama's supporters to ascertain exactly why they support it, when it looks like sheer madness to me. I am reminded of a saying on a key chain I once saw:

"I am trying to see things from your perspective, but I can't get my head that far up my ass."

I fail to see how it could ever work, even in a fantasy world.

Here is something I've learned in my fifty-seven years of struggling to make a living:

If you don't have any money, you can't solve the problem by spending more.

Of course, I never had the advantage of being able to legally print up more money when the existing funds run out.

Still, even with that advantage, I fail to see how even the most simple minded could think this plan will work.

Well, Obama is nothing if not simple minded, apparently.

It all boils to down to:
"If you can't dazzle them with your brilliance, then baffle them with your B.S."

And that is exactly what Obama and the Dumbocrat controlled Congress are doing.

His stimulus package makes as much sense as his saying that he will cut the debt in half by the end of his first term (by spending trillions more).
