WASHINGTON – At least Route 31 is a road to somewhere. President Barack Obama had it both ways when he promoted his stimulus plan in Indiana and later at a prime-time news conference. He bragged in Indiana about getting Congress to produce a package with no pork, yet boasted it will do good things for a Hoosier highway and a downtown overpass, just the kind of local projects lawmakers lard into big spending bills.

The idea of injecting money into the economy actually means.....putting money into the economy. The way to do that is in fact, to pay for things like building infrastructure which employs road crews, construction workers...maybe even Joe the Plumber could benefit somehow.

I guess we could convert the stimulus package into Chuck E Cheese tokens instead.....

How about you loan it to small businesses or big businesses? That's how you create jobs. Reagan was the entrepeneur's best friend. Obama is his enemy.

Thats what the bank bailout crap was for. This is different crap. And yes, you single celled marine creature, small and big businesses will be doing this work, so the effect is quite similar, although the government will be able to say "build this road" instead of "go team build in Vegas!".

So are big and small businesses going to build all the frisbee golf courses that are in this "stimulus package"?

Including the one that says "Dork lives here" outside your house?

If I had made it myself, would that have made me more of a dork?

I agree with the infrastructure upgrades and additions in the Stimulus Package.

But there is still waaaaay too much bullshit in that bill. Pork City.
