GOODBYE, AMERICA! IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED
February 11, 2009
It's bad enough when illiterate jurors issue damages awards in the billions of dollars because they don't grasp the difference between a million and a billion. Now it turns out the Democrats don't know the difference between a million and a trillion.
Why not make the "stimulus bill" a kazillion dollars?
All Americans who work for a living, or who plan to work for a living sometime in the next century, are about to be stuck with a trillion-dollar bill to fund yet more oppressive government bureaucracies. Or as I call it, a trillion dollars and change.
The stimulus bill isn't as bad as we had expected -- it's much worse. Instead of merely creating useless, make-work jobs digging ditches -- or "shovel-ready," in the Democrats' felicitous phrase -- the "stimulus" bill will create an endless army of government bureaucrats aggressively intervening in our lives. Instead of digging ditches, American taxpayers will be digging our own graves.
There are hundreds of examples in the 800-page "stimulus" bill, but here are just two.
First, the welfare bureaucrats are coming back.
For half a century, the welfare establishment had the bright idea to pay women to have children out of wedlock. Following the iron laws of economics -- subsidize something, you get more of it; tax it, you get less of it -- the number of children being born out of wedlock skyrocketed.
The 1996 Welfare Reform bill marked the first time any government entitlement had ever been rolled back. Despite liberal howling and foot-stomping, not subsidizing illegitimacy led, like night into day, to less illegitimacy.
Welfare recipients got jobs, as the hard-core unemployables were coaxed away from their TV sets and into the workforce. For the first time in decades, the ever-increasing illegitimacy rate stopped spiraling upward.
As proof that that welfare reform was a smashing success, a few years later, Bill Clinton started claiming full credit for the bill.
Well, that's over. The stimulus bill goes a long way toward repealing the work requirement of the 1996 Republican Welfare Reform bill and rewards states that increase their welfare caseloads by paying unwed mothers to sit home doing nothing.

Robert Kennedy famously said: "There are those who look at things the way they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream of things that never were and ask, 'Why not?'"Read the rest at AnnCoulter.Com
The new liberal version is: There are those who look at things and ask, "Why on earth should the government be paying for that?" I dream of things that never were funded by the government and ask, "Why not?"
Another “it must be Wednesday, hereeeeee’s Ann!”

H. L. Coulter
"If I've offended anyone," Ann Coulter told an audience of 1,200 at the Nixon Library today, "my work is done."
Charming and thoughtful in person -- a Connecticut Yankee who was graduated with honors from Cornell, studied law at Michigan, clerked for an appeals court judge, and litigated on behalf of individual freedom before becoming a commentator -- Coulter absolutely horrifies her critics. Strong, forbearing men shuddered with alarm on learning that the Nixon Foundation had invited her to speak, answer questions, and sign copies of her seventh book, Guilty.
For me, the key question came from a fan who wondered why she didn't have her own show on cable. She doesn't want one.
"I'm a writer," she said. At that point I began to pay closer attention to the deftness of her wordplay, which she had been honing until five minutes before I had the pleasure of introducing her.
Just think H. L. Mencken, who said, "I believe that all government is evil, in that all government must necessarily make war upon liberty..."
We are so boned.
Truthfully, there are some textual works which may have value beyond price, but I have not, nor do ever expect that a page's worth of words can amount to a billion dollars. Them must be some pretty damn flowery and persuasive words on them pages, I'll tell ya!.......must be some pretty powerful bullshit.
Actually, George Bernard Shaw said that “Why not?” quote, and if I am not mistaken those words were spoken by Satan in one of his (Shaw’s) plays.
I'll bet you a quadrillion she will..
Off topic, but just had to post this. Hilarious.
Guess what? Ed Hale over at Plains Radio is going to charge $10 a month to use the chat room!!
He said on the chat recently that he was a millionaire, yet he asked for donations to run his on line radio. When the bloggers trashed him for that, he quit. Now its $10 a month or you get kicked out of the chat room and forum!
What a scam artist!
