It Pays for Itself!

Just saw on CNN that Obama has a new plan to stimulate the economy — reinsulate all the office buildings.


I wonder how quickly he’s going to get to yanking Carter’s old sweaters out of the closet.

If it made economic sense, businesses would already be doing it.  Businesses know a lot more about saving money than you do, Spendy McSpenderson.  And where is the money going to come from?  Let’s see, banks won’t loan the money, because they know as soon as they do, inflation is going to explode, and if you just print money to pay for it, the result is… inflation.

So the real plan is to inflate us out of this depression.  Way to come up with a new plan, FDR.

    I was THIS close to spraying coffee on the monitor at the “Spendy McSpenderson” line (holding index finger and thumb vurry close together). That is one moniker that I hope sticks!

    This is an economic lesson that a lot of children in low urban socioeconomic areas are raised with spend, spend, and spend and let tomorrow take care of itself. I don’t know a single person that has any substantial economic comfort that got there with a spend mentality.
