What is that foul stench?

The stimulus organ stinks. And while it was being debated -- unread -- we were told it might not be enough. We'll need, surprise, more federal action down the road.

We are hardly in the same condition this country was in when the market crashed in 1929, but we have the largest legislation of this type ever in the nation's history. Why? Because statists can never let slip an opportunity to garner ever more power for the state.

That's why these people didn't read this bill. They didn't have to. Without reading it they know all they need to know: it grows government. Not as much as they want; but it's a start.

That's why it stinks. But what does it smell like?

Paul Shlichta suggests that the stench may be turpentine.
