Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Yes, Please

I would like $2000.  My guess is we would either use it to reduce our debt, fix the house up a bit or take a trip. If it were to reduce debt, it would be debt we've incurred to fix the house up a bit.  So one way or another, that money is stimulative.  Taking a trip would also be stimulative, providing we don't go over seas.

And on $4000 for the two of us, we are unlikely to get to Spain and do more than stay in hostels.  And then there are the Things and their incessant need for food and oxygen, so there goes the
"strap them to the wing of the airplane" idea.

Of course, something like this was sort of done during the stimulus, but it was done in such a way that no one noticed.

But a check for two grand?  I'd notice that.
