    Taking the stimulus package as a fait accompli, where should the money go?

    Well if they insist on spending it *now*, then it needs to go to workers that are qualified to do the work. If there aren't enough qualified minorities, then you'd have to train them, which takes time.

    The best thing of course would be Option C: drop the crackpot economic theory known as Keynesianism, which states that spending vast government sums on literally anything will jolt the economy back to life.

    LOL.

    The wingnut brou ha ha over the Reich video is the best faux outrage post of the month!:clap2:


    Calm down white people. You're acting like a bunch of whiny school girls.

    I totally agree that we shouldn't give all the stimulus money just to white people. That's just fucking common sense.

    And who's the moron that thinks public works projects require only "skilled" electricians, bricklayers and carpenters? Who's the moron who slept through high school history class, and doesn't know that public works projects can employ people of all different skill levels in all types of ways?

    Is there really anyone in their right mind who thinks a laid off janitor is going to be hired to do civil engineering design on a bridge? :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    How about allowing taxpayers keep their money? The best way to stimulate the economy is for Congress to cut their spending on waste and give that money back to the private sector.
