I have decided to lighten up on the weekends. But to me, weekends officially mean Saturday and Sunday.
So today being Friday, I get one more rant for the week. Today, we get to vist our federal government's proud website announcing the jobs saved/created with our hard earned money.
Just go to www.recovery.gov. On this website, you can click on any state to see how much has been committed so far and how much has been spent from the Stimulus package. But for more fun, click on your own state. It takes a minute to upload, but it's worth it.
You will see a galaxy of dots. Most of the ones I clicked on, are evidence of others who know a good thing when they see it. Free money. No accountability. Self-reported job creation numbers. Goodie goodie.
In ten random dot clicks, how many 'jobs' can you find that were actually created? (Wonder how many will still be around after the money runs out?)
Do a quick calc to see your average cost per job.
Sorry to turn your stomach at the end of the week. Current debt per citizen is around $360,000...This. Must. Stop.
