    Very interesting stuff.

     

    What I find most interesting is Steven Hansen's article concerning "free trade" and stimulus.

     

    All I can add to that is not only did much of our government spending (so our kid's future tax payments) "leak" into the world's economy and not ours, it also was directly SENT there.

     

    Billions to Brazil to buy our idled oil rigs (and our jobs), billions to China, Brazil and Mexico to build GM plants. Billions to battery companies that are foreign owned and operated. Billions for windows, insulation, solar panels and appliances with the majority made on foreign soil.

     

    We are destroying our childrens' future standard of living to create jobs in other countries.

     

    Makes me happy I'm not the only one that has noticed the insanity of these policies.

    The more you beat your head against the wall trying to get people to understand the more your realize your just getting a bigger knot on your head.

     

    Sure doesn't seem worth it.

     

    But I am sure those who got stimulated must be thinking "Those Americans, they are so foolish...I mean nice!!".
