    There’s a lot of talk in Washington about yet another so-called “stimulus” package. If the next one is anything like the last one it will simply be a mechanism for taking money away from people who aren’t spending it the way politicians would like, and transferring it to people who will. Our soon-to-be ruler feels like adding some grandiose public works projects (raking leaves in a National Forest) to the list.
    Let’s break away from these political stimulus ideas for a few minutes and study an absolutely brilliant idea from Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert. Now Louie hasn’t been around the halls of congress all that much (just three years) so he is not yet all that acclimated to the Washington lust for absolute power. If he were, he never would have come up with this idea...........

    Stimulus package!

    The perfect stimulus package?

    Give me $200 Grand (Tax-free, of course, and of which I have asked for not one dime), and I will bank and/or invest half, and quickly put $100 grand (plus half the accruing interest and dividends from my $100 G) into my own stimulation of the economy!

    Sounds like a winner, to me! :thumbs:

    I heard someone on the radio do the math on the original amount that the "big 3" were seeking. If that money was given to each tax payer 18 and over, each person would receive 422,000! :eek:

    They could have written into it that each american has to purchase a new car from the big 3, and pay off their homes or purchase investment propery. Talk about a national stimulus package!
