It's funny, just a mere 6 months ago I'd have read that $53.4 Billion figure and my jaw would have dropped and I'd have said "Not just no, but
HELL no!" Now, after the "stimulus" bribe, after the trillions and trillions of tax dollars injected into the system via auctions and absorptions
and bail outs and buy outs, after the original $700 Billion bail out, after a disgracefull $150 Billion in pork tag alongs added into the bill, and
after another $150 Bill+ "stimulus" hush money idea being floated about, after all that and more... $53.4 Billion doesn't seem like that much
money. I'm not advocating giving them this money, I'm merely relaying a sad, tragic really, commentary on what these bastards have done to us and
to our overall concept of the value of our money.
