Stolen lunches?

This ought to do the trick. Get yours here.

And speaking of stealing...
Here are some of the things in the $819 Billion Stimulus package reported by Newsmax:
For starters — and this will shock you — both the House and the Senate programs have a loophole that even gives illegal aliens cash payouts.
Here’s how The Associated Press explained it: “Undocumented immigrants who are not eligible for a Social Security number can file tax returns with an alternative number. A House-passed version of the economic recovery bill, and one making its way through the Senate, would allow anyone with such a number, called an individual taxpayer identification number (TIN), to qualify for the tax credits.”
In case you didn’t know it, any illegal can get a TIN number from Social Security, no questions asked.
This means illegals who broke the law to get here will be eligible immediately for federal cash — up to $1,000.

More than $4 billion is earmarked for "neighborhood stabilization activities" — money that will go to groups like ACORN, which worked closely with the Obama campaign, the same group accused of massive voter fraud.

Almost half of the proposed spending will directly benefit the Service Employees International Union, federal, state, and municipal employee unions, or other Democratic-controlled unions, according to writer Ben Stein.

600 million goes for new cars for top government bureaucrats.

Obama promised major infrastructure projects — yet only 5 percent of all the money goes for this.

$50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts. (Take a look at some of the things your tax dollars would be going toward here) There are many MANY ways to foster Art without letting this type of "Art" become included as the National Endowment for the Arts has allowed.

$650 million for the switch from analog television to digital.

Just to show you the tremendous waste, there is so much money appropriated in this bill you could give every unemployed person in the nation a check for $75,000 for the amount being spent.

This just makes me sick. Actually that sandwich looks somewhat appetizing after that report! I read some about that last night, and about his nominees tax problems! So nice to know that along with all this "money" flowing back into the system that the senate and house will be doing everything they can to tax us to pay for it while at the same time doing everything they can to make sure they don't (oh, and not even bothering to cover it up, just not paying!) Oh yippee (did you catch the dry sarcasm in the yippee??) :)

Or, every household could receive $17,000. I bet that would stimulate the economy a little don't you?

I couldn't even finish reading your post. It makes me nauseated. It's completely unbelievable. But, we did our part to try to keep that liberal crook out of office, right? **sigh** too bad there weren't enough of us.

I think you'll appreciate this...a friend of ours who lives in Richmond called to check on also happened to be right around Inaugration Day...he said, (with his super thick southern drawl and in total and complete sarcasm)..."Yup, I'm heading to the Home Depot to get me a new monster mailbox....need something to hold all them checks/rebates/stimulus that are going to be coming to me that Mr. Obama promised."
