[Video]The Government’s Money Hole – Recession, Taxes, and Bailout Commentary

by The Happy Rock on January 12, 2009

Not only is this satirical video from The Onion extremely  funny, but I also happen agree with the premise. Not sure if this makes it more funny and more disheartening.  Government tends to be a large money vacuum were money is inefficiently collected and redistributed with almost no input from the people.

“It’s just like they say, you have to throw money in a hole and set it on fire to make money”

So true. That’s what we’re about to do now too – America’s financial crisis has only prompted more calls of spend, spend. We hear about what a problem our 11 trillion dollar deficit is and yet the same politicians say we need another trillion dollar ‘stimulus’ – as if the mere writing of a check can right fundamental wrongs in our economic system.

Thanks for posting the video, it rings very true.

Lets just print more money to throw in the hole.

That is hilarious. I love the spoof on the cable news shows. I needed a laugh. Thanks.

thanks for posting this one.

if it wasn’t for the fact that i recognized that one “pundit” as the guy from the Sonic commercials i almost would have thought it could be real, it was done so convincingly.
