Stimulus spending lesson - if you do not have any spare cash just sitting around waiting to spend, but instead borrow money to provide stimulus, you have accomplished nothing. That's the lesson, now for the take home quiz for liberals: If you leave home with a $100 bill in your left pocket, and move that bill from your left pocket to your right pocket, how much more money do you have with which to provide stimulus. If you have no money, but borrow $100 from Mommy or Daddy to spend at an OWS protest, has the eceonomy been stimulated? Or would your parents have spent that same $100 on groceries, the mortgage, or something they wanted?
