$775bln "stimulus plan"
Obama to talk stimulus with Hill leaders - Yahoo! News
I just want to know where 1 trillion dollars comes from, I have trouble comprehending how much money that is.
well, here's 205 million
so, you'd need, what... 4875 of those
basically, a football field stacked 20 feet deep with hundreds. lol
dont worry if we keep along the current track we will deflate the dollar to the point that a trillion dollars might get you a set of tires
Zimbabwe here we come
instead of green backs, ccan we call them camelbacks?
any body who hasn't seen idiocracy yet needs to watch it. the way things are goin this is what the world is gonna be like.
Call me what you will, but I see a common thread here.
I just don't understand how people think these bailouts are a great idea. Don't people understand you can't just print more money and hand it out. It has to come from somewhere. Where in the fed budget is a trillion dollars coming from? People are fucking idiots.
And don't get me started on nationalized health care. People love that as well. While I think it's a great idea, it's a pipe dream. Again, the taxpayers foot the bill for all the deadbeats who don't care. The reason a state like Hawaii can do it is because they have tourism. The tourists in effect pay for the health care with their tax dollars. That's just not going to happen on a bigger scale.
Where are all the hardcore democrats that where pissed about the Bush administrations plan for a bail out? Its a shitty idea when Republicans pitch it but its the best idea since sliced bread when a Democrat wants it?
We are screwed.
the good news is I'm gonna get to quit my job soon and have all you working people pay for me and my son to live! Thanks guys keep up the hard work, we appreciate it!
George Washington warned us precisely about this. The political parties were just getting started when he left office, and he saw that they could rip the country apart. Here's a piece from his farewell address:
NLJR (Not Long Just Read)
it's not just tourism... it costs an absolute FORTUNE to live in hawaii.
milk is $9 a gallon. gas is probably still over $5
an 'average' house is 800,000.... of which is then taxed for property taxes.
that's how they pay for it....
basically, you CAN'T be poor and afford to live in hawaii...
frankly, if you're poor, you can't afford to get there in the first place.
yep, it's heading that way.
I'm planning to pay $45,000 in taxes this year. yup... some low life's salary right there.
i didnt get any money last time they sent out stimulus checks. we waiting and counting on tthat little extram money. Neither Nicole or I got it because I listed as the primary...fucking sucked.
i didn't get it either. i made "too much". so, basically i paid for someone to get this useless to the economy money.
Thanks, U paid me lmao!
