    "The government's first accounting of jobs tied to the $787 billion stimulus program
    claimed more than 30,000 positions paid for with recovery money. But that figure is
    overstated by least 5,000 jobs, according to an Associated Press review of a sample
    of stimulus contracts."

    More than 131,000 progress reports on stimulus funding will be posted Friday on
    recovery.gov, the government's stimulus-tracking Web site

  5. That's true ... it's been squandered, fucked-over and pocketed by the all of the same opportunistic, greedy selfish type of people that took the TARP money and ran!

    I swear, this may very well be the stupidst administration we've seen in the past twenty years. :eek: :p :mad:
  6. over 200 thousand dollars spend for every stimulus job

    and we still have massive immigration/guest workers

    borrowing from foreign nations, to create jobs at an extremely high cost, and giving them to foreigners is economic suicide
