Take the time to read the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009" to see what the fools in Congress and the White House are about to do with your money. After you go through all the line items you'll see all the various agencies that are going to be given lots of play money for junk that has nothing to do with building up the economy. It should make you made enough to give your "representatives" a shout but don't be surprised if they're not representing you any more. You can query for it on the Library of Congress web site. When you get done with this think about what could be done if all this money stayed in the hands of you and other Americans who actually have good ideas about goods and services to make and sell to others. That, friends, is the economic stimulus we need - not the proposed $900 billion spending spree by the federal government. You'd better protect your hard-earned money now because once it's wasted you're not getting it back but you will be paying the bill along with your children and grandchildren.
