Stupid Gov’t Tricks (And the Funny Things People Say About Them)

This may be the funniest thing I’ve read all day, especially considering the context of the massive idiocy it references:

We have come to the conclusion that the crisis Michigan faces is not a shortage of revenue, but an excess of idiocy. Facing a budget deficit that has passed the $1 billion mark, House Democrats Thursday offered a spending plan that would buy a MP3 player or iPod for every school child in Michigan.
We wonder how financially strained Michigan residents will feel about paying higher taxes to buy someone else’s kid an iPod.

Stupid government tricks are not party dependent, but if there were ever a moment to break out the “big government Democrat” stereotype and complain about overspending, this would be the occasion. I won’t lean to heavily on that platform, though, since my own, beloved “party of smaller government” isn’t making me proud on the fiscal responsibility front…

If I was a foriegn car company that needed to have a manufacturing plant in the US I would pick detroit in a heartbeat.  But, after that heartbeat was over I wpould look at the taxes levied on businesses there and say something like “boy that would have been stupid!” Nothing is wrong with Dtroit economics that kicking out the Democrats wouldn’t solve, problem is the people probably all love Democrats and hate the big business that has been anchored internationally by the unions/democrat policies.  Seriously! Where would you go to find a ready to go workforce for building cars?  Detroit! Where would you actually put the manufacturing plant? Almost anywhere else!

High taxes, overly powerful unions, semi-regular sports riots, and annual arson festivals--Detroit freakin’ rocks.
