Whose Stimulus?

I haven’t read the stimulus bill, don’t care to. Some thoughts on the situation as a distracted observer. They voted in B.O. because he is a great leader – he is leading nothing. Why in the hell would he let anyone else be the architect of the economy’s recovery. B.O. is saying pass this or ALL may be lost!? All what?

Most people in this country who are employed work in the private sector. Leave more money in the private sector (lower taxes and less costly regulation) and there will be more money to pay salaries.

If you “stimulate” a business with a large investment without a viable business plan to sustain itself that business is going to need to be stimulated again and again, each time there will be more employees counting on that “stimulus” check.

In the private sector businesses do not grow (gain employees) artificially. If the business can not support or sustain an employee that business does not hire. If the business is successful, jobs are created and the economy grows naturally.

Whatever, just some thoughts that keep rattling around in my head. Don’t people see this? Why does anyone think more government is better? If we use up all our dollars and max out our credit what will we do when/if a real disaster/war hits us?
