"We Have To Do Something"

If I hear the phrase one more time, "We have to do something" to justify this unconscionable monstrosity of a "stimulus" bill, I will scream so loud that every child in this neighborhood will shriek in terror. What kind of stupid explanation is that? It's as ridiculous and far-reaching as an unwed 14-year-old who gets pregnant and says, "Well, we were both in the bed and...We had to do something." Sometimes doing nothing is a better choice. Sometimes zipping up our pants and rolling up our sleeves and getting out of bed and going to work is the answer. (And, yes, I wanted to do something when we conceived our beautiful children,in case you were wondering.)


  1. I just read this article which says that the stimulus includes $300MM for GREEN golf carts. I want to throw a chair through a window.

  2. The mere thought of government as it now functions doing ANYTHING should cause us all to shriek in terror and throw chairs.
