It is called buyer remorse. It is that feeling you get after a major purchase that you have been jiggered.
I predict that our nation will soon be stricken with buyer remorse. Our new president was afire to get his stimulus bill passed quickly by Congress, yet he waited from Friday until Tuesday to sign it.
The size of the stimulus bill defies imagination. For example, I was corrected by a friend who had researched my statement that Acorn had a 4.2 billion dollar slice of the bill. My friend told me the exact figure was 4.19 billion dollars. Simply by rounding out the figure from two decimal places to one, I had misstated the figure by 10 million dollars.
Most of us can conceive a million dollars (one thousand thousands), but a billion as a thousand million stretches human conception. When you get a billion in your mind, multiply that 787 times and you have the stated value of this Obamanation called a stimulus bill. This staggering number takes on life when you consider what it can do.
The four thousand one hundred and ninety million dollars allocated to Acorn can ensure that we never have another honest election. The former employer of our president, Acorn, has been indicted in several states for voter fraud. The Houston Chronicle reported that Acorn is organizing neighborhoods to resist eviction based on defaulted mortgages. This will certainly result in violence.
To measure the strength of this bill to move and change our country is impossible. No one has read it. Think of that. The largest dollar amount ever legislated in the history of our country and no one, including the Democrats who passed it, has read it!
Are you feeling buyer remorse? Do you feel jiggered?
