John Kerry is an arrogant statist bastard,

pretty much proven- again- out of his own mouth:
During his speech, he addressed the argument made by fellow senators and many economists that tax cuts might be more helpful to stimulating the economy than long-term government spending. The American people are also coming around to that view, according to a recent CBS poll, which found only 22 percent of them favor more government spending over tax cuts as stimulus.

His argument against tax cuts for Americans during these hard economic times was illuminating:
I've supported many tax cuts over the years, and there are tax cuts in this proposal. But a tax cut is non-targeted.

If you put a tax cut into the hands of a business or family, there's no guarantee that they're going to invest that or invest it in America.

They're free to go invest anywhere that they want if they choose to invest

I seem to remember, when FDR was trying to put a man in jail for selling wheat at other than approved price(he was selling only to local buyers and argued that the new law about interstate sales didn't apply, the government lawyer said something like "Are we going to go back to farmers selling to who they choose for what price they choose?"

And we had that wonderful bit from Bill Clinton about "You might not spend your money the right way" if you're allowed to keep more of it.

God DAMN these people, one and all. Kerry, it's none of your damned BUSINESS how I spend my money; Bill Clinton, same to you you controlling piece of crap. And there are far too many vile beings in DC who think the same way but don't have the nerve to say it out loud, or just realize that saying it just might upset the peasants.

Lampposts, ropes, politicians... repeat as required...

Spending the money is about using it where it will do the most good to stimulate our ecomony. Are you intending on purchasing something with the money you would receive? That would help the economy. However, if you intend to pay off bills that would not be stimulating the economy because the money would be applied to previously purchased goods. How about using that money to by a car. What kind of car are you thinking about? If is one manufactured overseas then that would not help our economy. And, investments, if you are going to invest, but not in American goods or services than that too would not help the economy.
Now, perhaps you only care about yourself and don't really care about helping out the economy and assisting in putting you fellow citizens back to work, then I suppose I can understand your anger over Senator Kerry's comments. But,ultimately, in the end your selfishness will catch up to you and when you need that new job or you need to purchase that new product you will find both are not available to you.
This bill is about creating jobs, moving America forward and helping fellow Americans. This bill is not a debate over how much you pay in taxes how much you get for the money you pay in. And, it is not about managing your money.

Just arrived from A Keyboard on the response to this and just had to add that if you spend your money at Wal-Mart are you not then stimulating the Chinese economy? And, it should be patently obvious that Anon is Anon for a reason... dolt.

If people only had a clue about what is made where, we might stand a chance of buy American meaning something once again.

Firehand, you have a mighty fine blog here.
