Instapundit has an ad link to SinceSlicedBread.com. The site supposedly contains 21 great ideas to make the country stronger and we're allowed to vote for our favorites. Sounds pretty compelling, huh?
Nope... it's a lame collection (with a few exceptions) of socialist rantings - very few of which are actually new ideas. Here are some of the fascinating ideas:
Medicare As A Single payer - Hillary-care!
Massive Public Works Projects
Civil Works Corps - more spending, again!
Blanket The US With Wireless Access - for free, of course
Universal Health Care - again
Extend Social Security Tax Beyond $90k - more taxes.... Hurray!
Ownership of Retirement Assets - uhhh... I guest they have never heard of 401ks and IRAs
These idea sounded a bit suspicious to me so I scrolled down to see who runs the site. At the bottom there is a logo that says SEIU with the tag line - "Stronger Together". Sounds like some left-leaning think tank.
I click on the logo... ohh... it's the Service Employees International Union. I guess it now makes sense.
There are a few reasonable, non-socialist ideas like teaching Personal Money Management to High School students that I voted for. Everyone should visit the site and try to only vote for the ideas that don't further the interest of the union.
