Quick fact: if the USA had the population density of Japan our population would be around 3.24 billion people. If we do the same calculation using Germany’s density, we would have a population of around 2.23 billion.
Apparently, some politicians (and the press, of course) don’t quite understand these huge differences. They are willing spend billions to build more and more trains, even though the few we already have are basically a failure.
That is some stimulus for you.
Think quick: if you are a state that basically depends on tourism and now with the economy being slow and all, what is the one thing you should never tax?
Ah, if that was so simple.
Every single time I hear these Democrats saying that we got this crisis because of greed, and that what we really need is some common sense and accountability I think of all these little examples of stupidity and shiver. Scary times.
