Alabama Ironworkers Explain Stimulus Bill

While eating breakfast in the Las Vegas airport this morning, I met three ironworkers from Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  They said that work had been slow lately.  Did they expect the stimulus bill going through Congress to help them out?  Would $1 trillion in new government spending lead to more construction jobs?  “That’s just blowing money up a wild hog‘s ass.”

  1. Today, a friend told me “pouring money into another government stimulus is like moving furniture into a burning house.” Maybe we can roast the wild pig over the flames for something to eat.
