One Way To Fix The Economy
« on: February 21, 2011, 01:57:37 PM »

Now I am not for government handouts or socialism, but I saw this
illustration as to how the economy could have been fixed using Obama’s
own philosophy.
He could have had a national drawing and awarded 1 million dollars to
 1 million couples who each had full time jobs. The stipulation would be
 that they must purchase a new home, half could be homes not built yet
and half would be already built for sale homes. They must also quit
their jobs and buy 2 new American made cars.
That would make for 2 million job openings, 2 million car sales, 1
million new home sales and 500,000 new homes being built which would
require material, labor and fees and land sales. Economy would have been
 given a real jump start.

Oh, and don't forget everybody has to destroy one old car, get a rebate for doing it, then buy a new car in the process. Same thing with lightbulbs. Get rid of one thing and make everyone buy something else that has mercury in them so when they break, a special team has to come in, condemn and quarantine the area for 72hours. Talk about a job creator.
 
The problem with the $1Million to 1million people, there are about 160million working eligible people in the USA, so just like all the other "stimulus" ponzi schemes, it doesn't work, just like mandating everyone buy health insurance or face a fine to pay for those that don't have health insurance....does that one make sense?

Not politics, preventive policy suggestions!
 
 
I'll refrain, even though no political jabs were made, unless you think they would work and have something to feel nervous about?
 
Just Kidding!

I posted this under " General BS and Laughs" for a reason.....just joking!

besides, what working couple would give up their 2 jobs for a lousy $1 mil?

Now, maybe change it to 535 members of Congress losing their jobs and it might work!

Amen!  I hate those new light bulbs.  I bought some to "save money," right?  All but five that I purchased have burned out, yet some other, standard bulbs that I did not replace are still burning. 
 
When the cost of these new bulbs is calculated into the equasion there is no savings, but I do have a lot of manure.

I have replaced almost every CFL bulb in the house once in the last 5 years.  I have some old incandescent bulbs that haven't been touched in over 10 years.

I've been stocking up on the old standard bulbs for the last couple months, since Canada is  going "Green" and not allowing the sales of these bulbs.  I already have close to 100 bulbs and plan to keep buying them until I can't find them anymore.

Another thought on the old bulbs...they are almost 100% recyclable!  The glass can and the tin and metal filament can all be recycled....not so much for the CFL's.

As you can tell this is a bit of a sore spot for me....

The MV lightbulbs are so dangerous you aren't even supposed to put them in the trash without wrapping it in three individual layers of plastic and paper, then taping it up. Don't even think of putting a broken one in the trash, it is mercury poisoning, and you can actually get mercury poisoning breathing the air when one breaks!

Since when do the rabid environmentalists care about public health and safety...they have the planet to think of.

Well, look at the progress of the rabid environmentalists and you will see they are simply defeatists, wanting to take us backwards in time, which hey, that's cool, go hang out with the Ahmish people as far as I am concerned and and they should be happy as all getout.

I'm no rabid enviromentalist...but I do personally think we have too much technology.  Other then medical tech, most of the stuff we have today could be done without.  Just trinkets and doodads that really don't better our lives, or society.

I also think that we have a finite supply of resources on the planet, and at the rate we are consuming them to produce these doodads we will eventually strip mine the planet.  A couple steps backwards in time probably couldn't hurt. IMO...
