On January 21st, I posted a blog on government spending.  Today, I look at that post and am convinced that my worst fears have already been realized, in less that four months.  

I stated, ” I fear, however, that Mr. Obama will be like Congress and see no problem that can’t be fixed by Government Spending.  If he finances his new government programs (read Universal Health Care) by increasing taxes on the productive sector of our economy, we will all suffer for it in the long run.”  

Not only has the Obama Administration and Congress agreed that there is no problem that can’t be fixed by Government Spending, but, they have created new solutions where there are no problems, to wit:  funding ACORN to the tune of 100’s of millions of dollars to carry out non-specific tasks to strengthen inner cities, nearly a Million dollars for a disc golf course, etc.  Just read the stimulus bill (as few Members of Congress did before the vote, and you will be appalled at all the ways your money (and that of your grandchildren) is being spent.

Very depressing….
