If You Pump Money Into A Recession, What Happens When The Money Runs Out?
I have been asking this question all week and people keep looking at me like I'm stupid. Maybe I am, but I think it is a legitimate question. If you don't think so, can you answer my stupid question for me anyway so I can move on to the next stupid question and stop obsessing about this one?
Not being independently wealthy, inquiring minds would like to know the friggin' answer. Seriously! After all, we're doing an awful lot of socialistic things and I understand the short term potential for stimulation, but what of the long haul? I'm in this for the long run and so are my little minions, who will be footing this bill at Heaven knows what personal income tax rate.
So far, it seems we're putting spending-band-aids on open financial-arteries and it is only a matter of time before the lifeblood of the country runs out.
Biblically speaking, where are we in the end game? People everywhere are debating about the signs of the times. Are we gonna knock ourselves out of the prophetic box with experimentation and squabbling about theoreticals in politics? Are we going to legislate God and common sense out of the equation? Am I really stupid, or is my version of common sense making you incredibly uncomfortable?
I remember being taught if you don't work, you don't eat. I remember being taught to care for orphans and widows. I remember being taught that communities are reasonable for their localities. So far, we've bailed out big businesses while orphans and widows are loosing the roofs over their heads. I am busting my a$$ working three jobs to make ends meet and try to get an education and you guys are gonna give away mad money to people living in the street? Well hell, how do you pick 'em? Let me know so I can stake out my corner with a TV box and grub along for my lunch money too. This is the perfect time for praying people to start praying. If we don't pray for our leaders they are going to squabble and squander us into the freaking ground with feel good ideas that have no basis for sustaining the life of anyone.
What's the skinny on the latest operation? Why aren't you cleaning them up, training them and giving them a job? Economists are starting to howl because a crap load of money for the homeless to lunch aint stimulating a damn thing except special interest projects. When the money people start shaking their heads, what's a non-CPA kinda gal like me supposed to think? We all know that I have a mouth and can think on my own just fine, but I am an advocate of hiring professionals and getting the heck out of their way so they can do their jobs.
Who the hell are we hiring to help fix this mess? 'Tis madness...
We can't do politics as usual, people. It's becoming too damn expensive... You want to help the homeless then really help them and stop pulling my chain with legislative stupidity. Mini-rant done for the day.
