The American Recovery And Reinvestment Act has been passed.
My government just committed to double the national deficit, possibly start runaway inflation and throw away enormous sums of money without going through a normal budgeting process. I feel so... I don't know.
Maybe there is a clue in the words of President Obama. He has recently said, repeatedly,
When the town is burning, you expect everybody to grab a hose.Mr President, I don't think the proper analogy is "town"; I think it is "forest." And sometimes, for the good of the forest, the forest needs to burn. But you, Pres. Obama wants everyone to grab a hose.
Yeah. That's it. That is how I feel.
