I thought I understood people at least a little bit, until I read this Austin American Statesman article. People are actually having stimulus parties?!?!?!? WTF!

A priceless quote:

"This is perhaps the most interesting experiment in democracy in a long time," Conroy said. "When was the last time you were consulted on a major bill?"

I am wondering where the consultation is coming from? Last time I checked, the bill is already up and being debated. Conroy is obviously a rocket scientist.

Another great quote about the jobs that will be created:

"Is this going to be the Target job, or the Wal-Mart greeter job? Or will it be the cool 'Obama job'?" O'Brien asked.

Gee, can I get a cool Obama job? What exactly is that? If you are only qualified for a Walmart or Target job, can you still get a cool "Obama job"? By the way, here is the description of the person who gave this quote:

Tim O'Brien, an attendee who does odd jobs and said he makes about $15,000 per year, said he wonders how unemployed people will view the jobs that the bill hopes to create.

Does he qualify for a cool "Obama job"?

Our children, and people who have worked hard to make something of themselves will be the ones paying so guys like Tim can have "cool Obama jobs".

Maybe we should learn French. Soon our political and economic system will be the same as thiers.
