    The American people deserve to know how their money should be spent.
    We need to dump money out of helicopters onto affluent neighborhoods. No wait ; it would be less expensive to use drones leftover from the end of one of our military escapades.
    The job creators could use this cash to create complex financial instruments. This would increase GDP by as much as 40%.
    With that extra economic output our best and brightest could get down to the serious task of removing high paying, union jobs.
    The steap ascending trajectory of this budget policy would employ thousands upon thousands of folks in minimum wage " service sector jobs "
    As an added benefit, the one or two hundred newly minted gazillionaires would burgeon the federal coffers by paying taxes on their windfall at a 14% rate.
    Let's roll up our sleeves and get to work. Let's buckle down and pull up our boot straps. Nose to the grindstone and all that.
    These tactics have worked in the past because we were hard working patriots with purple mountain majesty's.
    The rest is just vanity laced with profanity.
    Bless us all.

    rest assured folks one part of the 3 trillion plus budget we would never hear of would be the dole out to foreign nations.
    American tax payers are not in "the need to know' loop on that one.
