    We aren’t useless yet.

    The
    Fix

    There recently was an article in the St. Petersburg , Fl. Times. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on:

    “How Would You Fix the Economy?” I think this guy nailed it!

    Dear Mr. President,

    Please find below my suggestion for fixing America ‘s economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

    Now, we just have to find another $40 trillion to do it. :cuckoo: Imagine the inflation, if that much money came out at once! Can you say $100,000 Ford Fiestas?

    Well, from the point of view of a 68 year old that is still working it sounds good. Until you do the math.
    Damned math always gets in the way.

    You think we have $40 trillion laying around to pay off anyone? Every year, we take in about $2trillion in tax revenue and pay out over three. We have already accumulated over $15trillion in debt...and you want to borrow another $40trillion? In our current situation, every taxpayer's portion of the debt is $137,000...and you want to increase that to something near a HALF A MILLION DOLLARS owed by everyone that pays taxes?

    Wow. Didn't think that one through, did you?

    I think if they make each recipient also buy a half dozen or so Volts they might be on to something.

    Wow... red letter day.

    KommieKonnie is right for once. This is absolutely ludicrous, but let me tell you, it's just as insane as some of the left's ideas of more of the same.
