Dan sent, Schumer: $500 billion to $700 billion stimulus. Dan comments,

Anyone who lives in New York, and travels to other parts of the country, knows that the billions of dollars D.C. spends each year on infrastructure sure isn’t finding its way to the Empire State. One good reason for that is our Congressmen and Senators. They’re lazy pigs. And once in office they quickly discover it’s easier to bloviate on camera about saving the country or the world than getting their hands dirty fighting for a new highway or a 21st century signal system for the subway. One of the laziest pigs of them all is our senior senator listening to himself talk above. Count on it. His “new New Deal” is going to include a massive public works program that would make FDR blush, but in five years’ time NYers will be stuck in the same traffic jams and standing in the same motionless subway cars waiting for the apocryphal “sick passenger” to get well.

No one to blame but ourselves.

    Claremont College and the other four colleges in the immediate area(you can walk for one campus to the next and share classes) used to be populated by instructors and students who were very smart and generally very conservative. I spent my freshman and sophomore years at Claremont and some of the guest speakers were Milton Friedman, William F. Buckley, Gen James Gavin(who spoke of integrating the 82nd Airborne and dealing with the French while ambassador to England), Billy Graham and Bishop Sheen and my all time favorite Col. Augustine Pinochet(of course at that time no one outside of Chile knew who he was. My point was that the schools were conservative and at the height of the Cold War were sometimes labeled reactionary.

    So having people argue about girls in mom-made cotton Pilgrim outfits and boys in construction paper hats or feathers seems as if the virus has even made it to Upland.
