Capitol Concern

Folks, here's all 407 pages of wonderfully unread American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. I'm in the slow process of reading it, but to be honest, I'd rather be mauled by a chimpanzee. It's boring. It's also obviously wasteful, and if half the idiots we call Representatives had taken the time to read it and actually vote based on what they think is best for their constituency and not their ridiculous party affiliation, perhaps, I wouldn't be bitching right now. Of course I'm generalizing as I haven't read even remotely close to the whole thing, but anyone who devotes even half the brain power that I did will see the potential for excessive pet spending. Don't mistake this posting as a hail to the Grand Old Party. The GOP's just as stupid as the Democrats for stonewalling the whole thing.

On an impressive note, you can see Obama's mug on recovery.gov and track spending on the stimulus package. I hope that's actually true. Right now, it's just simple graphs that wave billions of dollars in general directions, but it promises to detail every aspect of our tax dinero once said money starts burning. We shall see. Meanwhile, I'll continue to hate enough for all of us.

The only reason I'm even troubling my precious heart over this thing is because for the first time in most of our lives, our system of government, our way of life, is on the verge of total collapse (think the Soviet Union), and if you think things are bad now, wait until Americans begin starving to death.
