Stimulus Money, How Many Jobs Were Created?

Seems stimulus money was used to pave the Fox River Trail. With unemployment high, how many jobs did this create?

From the Green Bay Press.
"DE PERE — Smooth pavement now covers about 10½ miles of the state's Fox River Trail.

A weekend ceremony on the state's most widely used trail that extends from Green Bay to Hilbert christened the newly paved sections of the path in De Pere and just south of the city. The trail hosts everyone from dog walkers and runners to bicyclists and inline skaters.

A small crowd gathered Saturday near the trail's intersection with Heritage Road in De Pere to celebrate the completion of several recent construction projects aimed at making the path more accessible for a variety of users."
Bit by bit: More than 10 miles of Fox River Trail have been paved | greenbaypressgazette.com | Green Bay Press Gazette

I like this. "A small crowd gathered Saturday near the trail's intersection..." All this spent money and only a few people show up to celebrate? What a Joke!

How much of your tax dollars were spent on this?
The most recent project that wrapped up last week was funded by more than $200,000 in federal stimulus money, said Matt Kriese, a supervisor with the Brown County Park Management Department.

$200,000 and how many jobs were created for this. Sure they raised private money but why in these bad economic times did we need to pave a bike path with tax dollars? Somebody got their palm greased.

Is anyone else "TICKED OFF" about government waste?

People are out of work, living week to week on their income and a few lefty greenie wienies can ride their bikes or walk a couple miles south of De Pere. And by the way, who will pay for this useless spending?

Your children and grandchildren. Things need to change in November.


From an E Mail. Joke of the day.
Since We're Talking About the Oil Leak.....

A man was driving down the road and ran out of gas. Just at that moment, a bee flew in his window.

The bee said, 'What seems to be the problem?'

 'I'm out of gas,' the man replied.

The bee told the man to wait right there and flew away. Minutes later, the man watched as an entire swarm of bees flew to his car and into his gas tank. After a few minutes, the bees flew out.

'Try it now,' said one bee.

The man turned the ignition key and the car started right up. 'Wow!' the man exclaimed, 'what did you put in my gas tank'?

The bee answered,
Wait for it. wait for it.

You're just gonna love this

Yogi Jr. Visit's Compond

I had to post this because the Berry Laker boys would never believe the old man. Mrs B (the love of my life) and three of the four Berry Laker clan are back at the upper east side for work, low and behold I stand up while watching satellite communications and look who is visiting the compound. Yogi jr was looking for something to eat. Didn't see mama bear which kind of surprised me but I knew she was near.

Through the compound window.

Licking a campfire table for Mountain Dew and Coke.

Nothing here.

Let's see what else he can find.

"Hey Berry Laker, you call that a campfire pit?"

Yes, that's Mrs B's garden. Notice the 8 ' wire fencing.

Nothing in the trailer.

You can see how big he is compares to a leaf rake.

'Hey buddy, what's the logs for?" Campfire bench's after they dry, next year.

"Your telling me I have to crawl over this?"

Licking Mrs B's solar butterfly lights.

Nothing here, "I'm out of here."

Congrat's Rush and Kathryn

From Gather.

"There were 400 guests at the rose bedecked event. Some of the most famous guests were Karl Rove, Sean Hannity, Rudolph Giuliani, James Carville, and Mary Matalin."
Rush Limbaugh's wedding singer? Elton John -... | Gather
How can the liberal left say Rush is a bigot?
