The Communistic Approach

Shortly after class, an economics student approaches his economics professor and says, "I don't understand
this stimulus bill.  Can you explain it to me?"

The professor replied, "I don't have any time to explain it at my office, but if you come over to my house on Saturday and help me with my weekend project, I'll be glad to explain it to you."

The student agreed.  At the agreed-upon time, the student showed up at the professor’s house.

The professor stated that the weekend project involved his backyard pool.  They both went out back to the pool, and the professor handed the student a bucket.

Demonstrating with his own bucket, the professor said, "First, go over to the deep end, and fill your bucket with as much water as you can."   The student did as he was instructed.

The  professor then continued, "Follow me over to the shallow end, and then dump all the water from your bucket into it."

The student was naturally confused, but did as he was told..   The professor then explained they were going to do this many more times, and began walking back to the deep end of the pool.

The confused student asked, "Excuse me, but why are we doing this?"   The professor matter-of-factly stated that he was trying to make the shallow end much deeper.   The student didn't think the economics professor was serious, but figured that he would find out the real story soon enough.

However, after the 6th trip between the shallow end and the deep end, the student began to become worried that his economics professor had gone mad.

The student finally replied, "All we're doing is wasting valuable time and effort on unproductive pursuits.   Even worse, when this process is all over, everything will be at the same level it was before, so all you'll really have accomplished is the destruction of what could have been truly productive action!"

The professor put down his bucket and replied with a smile,  "Congratulations.   You now understand the stimulus bill."

But KFC, you are forgetting that this Stimulus Bill, unlike the first stimulus bill (or was that the zero stimulus bill since Pelosi is talking about a "2nd" stimulus bill and not a 3rd) from Bush, has mystical powers behind it by the Almight Messiah Obama. This bill will defy all laws of nature, all mathematical calculations and all of history. Besides, shouldn't we give the guy a chance? I mean, after all it's only a 50/50 chance he will either bring us back to the top of our throne or send us back to the 14th century.

Charles you really are becoming the broken record you hated so much. It's not a pretty sight.

In Louisiana, our governor is refusing 100 million or so from the stimulus package to bolster the unemployment system. This is a comical, albeit spot on, example of the reason we don't need this money. We don't need to put people on the dole. We need to put them to work. I think Jindal would be happy to take that money to offer tax breaks to oil and gas companies in LA since it seems that the federal government wants to take away the tax incentives because oil and gas isn't green enough.
