Yay stimulus bill

Hope and change.... and a shitload of taxpayer's money down the fucking toilet.

Some examples:

- A $246 million tax break for Hollywood movie producers to buy motion picture film.

yeah, cuz those douchebags are DIRT POOR right?

- $248 million for furniture at the new Homeland Security headquarters.

are we buying them solid gold desks?!?!?

- $160 million for "paid volunteers" at the Corporation for National and Community Service.

last time i checked "paid volunteers" are called EMPLOYEES.

Just remember, it is no longer patriotic to question or disobey your president. Now that Bush isn't around you are a bad bad person if you do not fall in line and show "bipartisanship".

Be careful dude! Your sister was one of those "paid volunteers" for 2 years and enjoyed every minute of it. Your right in that yes technically we were employees but that doesn't change the fact that giving a substantial amount of money in the budget to support these programs is a good thing. Doing the work that I did saved companies and organizations thousands of dollars since they had "paid volunteers" to do the work they needed done for a lot these than paid labor. I know you might not agree but these "paid volunteers" can do so much for the people here in the states. So for my sake please don't talk shit about the government supporting these organizations cause its not such a bad thing.

did you read everything on the bill?

I did and yeah I agree that alot of that stuff is crazy! I'm just saying that I don't think the part of giving money to the Corporation for National and Community Service is a bad thing. If that will help the Americorps program stay alive then I am all for it.
