  1. We need to help everyone…..

    I can agree that a lot of people need help, some more than others. However, I don’t think we need a middleman (aka politicians) to determine who does and does not need help. Considering much of the “help” monetarily is going to those who already technically have the money to be providing help, the stimulus money idea(s) might be the wrong approach.

    If you look at the total capitalization factor in the U.S. alone, there is enough money to sustain everyone currently existing. However that money is clustered in certain areas. Some of it with people who keep talking about needing money to stimulate the economy or to help this or that group of persons, but they themselves refuse to start writing checks out of their own pockets, instead deciding we can print more money, drive up the cost vs value factors, and pass the buck onto future generations letting them figure out where they are going to get there help to remain anywhere near the realm of solvency??? Eventually the cycle will have to end, and either we start cutting our losses now, or our descendants will be more royally screwed than they ever thought was possible.

  2. The Temptation to Hoard by Henri Nouwen

    As fearful people we are inclined to develop a mind-set that makes us say: “There’s not enough food for everyone, so I better be sure I save enough for myself in case of emergency,” or “There’s not enough knowledge for everyone to enjoy; so I’d better keep my knowledge to myself, so no one else will use it” or “There’s not enough love to give to everybody, so I’d better keep my friends for myself to prevent others from taking them away from me.” This is a scarcity mentality. It involves hoarding whatever we have, fearful that we won’t have enough to survive. The tragedy, however, is that what you cling to ends up rotting in your hands.

  3. Common sense has left the building… Who’s on stage? Well… greed, corruption, self-service etc.. It’s all listed in the Bible.
    When I was a child, my father spoke at times of the revived Roman Empire – not from a Scriptural point of view since he didn’t go to church – but he had much insight politically. It is revived, has been, and growing by leaps and bounds. The spirit of the antichrist is at work and doing well. These economical woes are real yes, but such a distraction from what is really going on.
    Sorry if am somewhat of subject 🙂

  4. I don’t think that type of sense is too common. It’s called Liberal Cents. Some buy into the whole let’s make it worse before it can get better idea. I say, step-aside and allow it get worse so it can get better in a healthy way.

    We need to help everyone? Ummm… what is the role of government again??? I’m lost. It certainly isn’t to “sustain” people. (Hint: the Constitution would be helpful here) We would do that just fine. Bush got a poor grade with abusive spending… Obama is exponentially trumping Bush with unprecedented spending.

    “This notion of taking our money, our grandchildren’s money and throwing into these huge corporations as thought some Treasury bureaucrat knows more than the management of this company is acinine. These companies are in deep trouble, and handing them $5 billion just means it takes an extra three months to go bankrupt… if you are 20 years old today, you’re going to spend probably $114,000 in extra taxes in your lifetime to pay the INTEREST on the Obama debt — not to pay off the debt… politicians spending their credit cards as though nobody was ever going to send a bill. It’s pathetic” (paraphrased Speaker Gingrich in recent interview with Greta over the weekend)

  5. Common sense?

    It’s just money. We need to help everyone. What makes you think God created more people than our country can sustain? Common sense?

    Why if I used common sense, I wouldn’t be a Christian.

  6. Stop Already! We are running out of ink to print more money!

    It’s ridiculous, and completely non-understandable to me. And it’s not just the Democrats; Republicans jumped on the spending wagon when they were in control. Probably a major reason they were ousted. Common sense. We need common sense.
