The only thing being stimulated is taxpayers' anger

So you still think all that stimulus funding was worth it?

Do you think it was worth it to spend $300,000 for a GPS-equipped helicopter to hunt for radioactive rabbit droppings at a nuclear reservation in Washington state? Or, how about the $219,000 dumped at Syracuse University to study the sex lives of freshmen woman? Or how about the $3.4 million for turtles to build a 13-foot tunnel for turtles to cross U.S. 27 in Lake Jackson, Fla.? Or, I’m sure you’re thrilled to death about the $2.5 million worth of stimulus checks sent to the deceased.

If you don’t think that was worth it, then you might be smart enough to figure out that the $74,486 in stimulus funding spent on each of the 10,700 jobs the federal government claims the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act created in Kentucky wasn't worth it, either.
