Your Stimulous at Work, Invisible Congressional Districts

In a remarkably fine piece of journalism, ABC news puts this up today:
"...In Oklahoma, recovery.gov lists more than $19 million in spending -- and 15 jobs created -- in yet more congressional districts that don't exist.

In Iowa, it shows $10.6 million spent – and 39 jobs created -- in nonexistent districts.

In Connecticut's 42
nd district (which also does not exist), the Web site claims 25 jobs created with zero stimulus dollars...."

Change we can believe in Mr. President? Really?

The sun will rise. The sun will shine. The sun will set. This is the nature of the earth.

The government will tax. The Government will waste money. The Government will be corrupt.
This is the nature of Government, power wielded with strength by those who have not earned it to the benefit of none but themselves.

My president's administration claims human error, simple mistakes, for this wanton waste of money that was borrowed to begin with, as expected.
Humans do not assign money to places that do not exist, nor are jobs created in places that do not exist, unless they intend to intentionally deceive, as has become apparent.

The data given at recovery.gov is as transparent as an algae encrusted shrimp brine holding tank slathered with petroleum jelly sitting on a mirror in the midst of an aging smoke filled bingo hall. Further investigation by your favorite intrepid blogger is forthcoming.

Take note, fellow Americans. This is all that can be expected of legislation that is criminal by its very nature. Only further corruption and fleecing of the public can result from the legalized theft of the socialist policies being pushed by my national leaders.

What was it Benjamin Disraeli said? "Lies, damned lies and statistics?"

And what's really outrageous? Even when confronted with this hard cold evidence of bogusity, they blithely dismiss it like it doesn't matter.

I'm beginning to like the idea of marching to D.C. with pitchforks.

"bogusity" may be my new word of the week. :D

Pitchforks? I'd have to go buy one...
