The stimulus will be a disaster

If you give people some extra money when times are tight, they'll spend it. But when it runs out, they will go back to not spending.

The only way to really stimulate the economy is if people had a constant influx of extra money, like lower taxes, so they will constantly be spending more. Not just this one-time deal.

It's so easy to save the economy:

Abolish the income tax, we'd all be a lot richer and more willing to spend.

Since the government would be taking less in taxes, get rid of some government spending.

-Close bases in Germany, Okinawa, Guam, and any other unnecessary ones that I'm missing.

Even just that should do it. People would have a more of their money, and the government wouldn't be wasting it on things we don't need.

But as long as it's un-communistic, you won't get Obama and the Obamaniacs to back it.

I can't believe they're actually printing $800+ billion. Inflation anyone?

An email forward I got

A message to liberals and conservatives.

To My Liberal Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2009, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great.

Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wish.

To My Conservative Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

More on the war on drugs

This is someone else's words. They said it better than I could.

"The funniest thing is, extremely potent weed, coca, and opium extracts were entirely legal in the United States essentially from its founding. For hundreds of years, anybody could easily acquire the best morphine and cocaine for extremely cheap from any drug store. There was no "drug problem". There were no gangs, or cartels, or turf wars. Cannabis Sativa was either the first, second, or third most prescribed medicine throughout all of the eighteenth century. Fast forward a hundred years, and you have innocent people dying by the thousands in Mexico because of the idiotic self-righteousness of some puritan lawmakers.

That's what happens when you prohibit a product with extremely high demand. The illegality jacks up the price so much that anybody can see how lucrative dealing is. Prohibition does nothing to stop drugs and drug use, it merely makes the drugs more dangerous, dirtier, and places the manufacture and distribution of the substances in the hands of murderous thugs, instead of scientists in lab coats and fancy buildings.

Oh, and the cost? Holy jesus, do you know how much money our government flushes away each year solely on marijuana eradication? Just think about the untold billions spent chopping down all those plants...and yet cannabis remains the #1 cash crop in the United States, and teenagers report they can acquire it far more easily than they can alcohol and cigarettes. That is the DEFINITION of waste.

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

We've been doin the same ol' thing for quite some time now, and all we have to show for it are record coca cultivation in South America, massacre of civilians on a truly massive scale in Mexico, and terrorists funding themselves through heroin sales. How anybody can not see that a radical new strategy is needed is fucking beyond me."

Indeed. However, I don't think drug laws are meant to eradicate the drug problem. It's usually "let's see how sadistic we can be towards druggies and make it legal, and whether it actually eradicates the problem... that doesn't matter, as long as we get our jollies off."

There are tried and true methods to lower drug use and drug-related crime, but unfortunately, with those methods you don't get to tell other people what to do with their bodies.

Bush dodged that shoe!

Damn. That was impressive.

And to be fair, the guy who threw it had damn good aim.

I am no Bush fan, but no American should be hit with a shoe thrown by a foreigner, specially not the president! That really would have embarrassed the entire country.

To all Americans saying you wish he got hit: You are a traitor.

Liberals oppose people saving for their future

Because to save money must mean you have extra money. Having extra money is a bad thing because that means you are depriving someone else of that money. Some people don't even have food.

People should be arrested and punished by the government for saving a.k.a. being greedy.
