The kid loves her dirt, and told me I can’t use any of the 10 yards.
“I’m planting my flower garden here,” said she.
Of all the idiotic ideas the Bush administration has foisted on our poor selves, this economic stimulus package is near the top of the stupid scale. We are borrowing money from other countries, thus adding to our deficit, to, somehow, make this recession (“rough patch”) hurt a little less on us “little folks.” We are, of course, supposed to drive to the mall and spend it. Oh, and we’re to spend some of it on gas, too, but not our defaulting mortgages.
I spent part of ours on dirt and wood for the greenhouse garden beds instead. The rest is going into the bank. It may not be stimulating the economy, but it’s stimulating me.
