Unbeknownst to anyone who read through the thousands of pages tin he stimulus bill, the White House initiated the creation of a new emblem.
The stimulus package generates work provided by the government and once that work is completed, where will more work come from? Under this stimulus package the only assured way for their to be more work is by making government create it. That means more government spending.
Now never mind the fact that all this spending is not helping the deficit which the left has made one of the top issues to use against Republicans. Never mind the fact that the stimulus package does little to free up lending in the free market and does little to boost free enterprise in America. All of that is not suppose to matter because government spending is creating government jobs. But the problem is that government jobs do not sustain themselves, private sector jobs do.
The problem is that although sign makers with the right government contract will make money from the creation of the new emblem for the stimulus package but what will they do when all those signs have been made?
The free market will not be expanded by the growth of government and the work for more signs will not be increasing, unless of course it is for more government projects.
So this new emblem for projects funded by the new stimulus package is quite a good representation of all that the so called recovery act represents. It represents a short term action that will cost us more than it is worth in the long run. It represents an increase in government control and a decrease in the expansion of opportunity and the free markets that built America.
A much more accurate symbol for the stimulus package which I call the American Economic Socialization package would be the old hammer and sickle.
A socialist, a capitalist and a communist agreed to meet.
The socialist was late.
“Excuse me for being late, I was standing in a queue for sausages.”
“And what is a queue?” the capitalist asked.
“And what is a sausage?” the communist asked.
