There's a link at CNN.com to a breakdown of what the ongoing Porkopalooza in the capital will mean for the individual taxpayer (I mean, other than your grandchildren paying $1,000 New Dollars for a loaf of bread, if they can afford it after having 50% of their wages withheld from their Wal Mart check as taxes.)
What was the link titled?
That's right. All the monosynaptic folks out there who think that money comes from the butts of government-owned unicorns think that the government is going to Give Them Money!!1!one! How awesome is that?
DO YOU IDIOTS NOT UNDERSTAND? YOU AREN'T GOING TO "GET" ANYTHING!
You're going to be paying for passing out this Monopoly money for the rest of your lives, even if you were just born today and live to be 100, and in return, they'll graciously allow you to keep a little bit extra of your own money. The only people to whom this could sound like a good deal probably get outwitted by flatworms on a regular basis.
There are mornings when I just put my head in my hands and think "Screw it, let it burn." But I don't have kids, so that's an easy out for me...
