When debating the effects of the stimulus and our spending, both on here and elsewhere, I tend to get pointed to recovery.gov quite often.

Funny, how on their own site, $6.4 billion is awarded to districts that don't exist.

Saw elsewhere that in Arkansas, $1000 was spent on a lawnmower... and that $1000 is said to have saved or created 50 jobs. Really? Amazing!

Tomorrow I will go to a store and bust out a window. And then I can claim to have saved the job of a janitor and someone who works for a glass company. At least that seems to be somewhat how the math works in this /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif

Anyone who doesn't believe in black holes, need look no farther that Washington DC. It just sucks the money and life out of everything it can.
