The cuts are somewhat scary in some parts, but the others aren't bad. However I believe that this stimulus package will work, I just hope that the recovery.gov website will adequately project the amounts in where the funds are spent.

i think it's really beyond my understanding.

you can hear people for or against parts of it and you're like yeah that makes sense and they're only talking
about one small tiny slice of the pie. the numbers are insane and i'm not an economic theorist and they get
it wrong all the time.

from what i gather it's needed and fast. just to get people working on some shit.

all i'm really for is public execution of the top 30 people at like the 4 big banks.

Yeah, the big number scares me to be honest. Sliced up, alot if it seems to make sense but I wonder if alot of that is really needed at this time. I heard a saying once, something along the lines of never letting a crisis go to waste so maybe that's why some of that is in there. All I can really do is hope for the best. I still got a job and can afford to put food on the table (*knock on wood*) so hopefully the package doesn't end up making matters worse.

PS - I voted for Stimulous Package because I love Barack. Mainly cuz I like the guy and there was no 'im retarded with no real opinion' option.

there's gonna be a crash eventually so we might as well get it out of the way. let shit hit rock bottom and start the recovery instead of delaying it. having said that, i can't say that the stimulus package WON'T work. with complex shit like this the only way to know if something will work is to put it out there and try. inactivity certainly won't fix things. i like obama. he seems genuine in his desire to fix things but i'm also glad to see that not everyone is just blindly getting in line with him. that was one of my big concerns with his election. everyone is so happy that he's "not george bush" and about him being black that i was worried he'd be able to get away with a lot of bullshit. that doesn't appear to be happening (yet).

of course, since i've always got my tinfoil hat on i think this entire recession is just a way to bolster our military. when people start loosing jobs they start joining the military. *shrugs*

and i agree with toon. line up the top 30 greedy fucks responsible for this and execute every last mother fucking one of them.

thats funny you mention that because i heard on the radio that the armed forces are getting a huge boost in
recrutement. although i think it would have been cheaper just pay people more than to crash the world's economy
haha so take the hat off ;D.

The armed forces will always get a huge boost in recruitment in tougher times. Always. The good news is that it means that it means that requirements will go up as well though.

You really can't beat it from a standard of A) Get a shitty job, still have no money and pay for my rent, utilities, etc. or B) Join the armed forces and have my rent paid for, food paid for, utilities paid for, save money up the wazoo for it, 4 weeks paid vacation, etc. That's tough to beat when you look at this shitty job market all around the US.
