I just want to ad to my previous post. Our governor was not for the stimulus package, and only with reluctance did he accept it. He does realize that the most important part is the create jobs.
I did the previous post using a writer's creative right to use far out ideas to make a point., sort of like an editorial cartoon. I do believe in helping the schools, but I think that we are going at this from the wrong way. If we create meaningful employment, workers will pay taxes, and that in turn will create funds that can be used for projects. Also, I believe that there should have been strict controls put in place on how the money is to be used.
Many years ago, I was in financial distress, and I went to my father to borrow money. He told me an old adage that we have heard many times. "Son, I am going to loan you the money, but always remember, you cannot borrow your way out of debt"
