Beware Of What You Wish For

Beware Of What You Wish For

My computer and my Blackberry were nearly on fire today with news reports that the Senate had approved the Obama stimulus bill and then that a compromise had been reached with the House later in the day.

I wish this well and hope beyond all hope that it will do what people want it to do. But I can almost hear the rustle of the
carpetbaggers shuffling in the background figuring out some way to get their grimy hands on the dough once again.

I was reminded again today that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Again I truly wish that I had the answer but I don't.

There was an old TV show many years ago where they had a "Way Back Machine" that allowed people to go back to a better time. Maybe we could buy one for $789 billion.

By the way for those of you who have never looked at the number that is 789 thousand million dollars. $789,000,000,000. Hurts my old eyes. Gives "Buddy can you spare a dime" a whole new meaning. g
