Opening Arguments

A piece of the pie

Reason magazine online has a Personal Stimulus Generator, which you can fill out and thus stake your very own claim for some of the trillions of dollars soon to flow from Washington. I filled it out, and here's the result. If you don't want to read the whole thing (nobody in Congress has, after all), here's my part that was added:

wireless and broadband deployment grant programs


(including transfer of funds to Leo Morris for the Leo Morris Personal Economic Stimulus Program)


    For necessary and unnecessary expenses related to the Wireless and Broadband Deployment Grant Programs established by section 6002 of division B of this Act, $2,825,000,000, of which $1,000,000,000 shall be for Wireless Deployment Grants and $1,825,000,000 shall be for Broadband Deployment Grants: Provided, That an additional $125,000,000 shall be paid directly to Leo Morris in the form of subsidized loans that do not require repayment. Provided Further, That the funds be used by Leo Morris to rehabilitate cats suffering from depression or for whatever. Provided Even Further, That Leo Morris will receive free Allison Krause tickets for life. Provided Even Further Still, That Leo Morris shall be treated as a cabinet-level appointment for the purpose of income tax reporting, and therefore no taxes shall be paid on any of the aformentioned benefits. And one more thing: Nancy Pelosi is hereby expelled from Congress, effective immediately upon enactment.

I was going to ask for more, but I have only two cats. Wouldn't want to be accused of greed.

I took up the challenge, got my slice of the "pie",and since YOU already got Allison Krause tickets (that girl can play AND sing)...how's about we "share" the wealth, eh?
