Beware the Tempter

I was considering the title 'Greed' for this commentary, or perhaps TANSTAAFL, but I'll save that for the tags below.  I was watching the news on the TV monitor at the gym this morning when a story caught my eye.  Regarding the President's 'Stimulus' proposal the story mentioned a Maryland city that wanted to get "a piece of the ... pie".  This town apparently has leaders who are looking to "cash in on the plan".  Does that make you feel good?  For this town is one of thousands throughout the country that are looking to "cash in on the plan", perhaps you live in one of them.  But where is the 'cash' coming from?  There are only two places that it can come from:  1) Taxpayer pockets now, or 2) Increased debt levels now, to be paid for in the future through debt repayment and, or debasement of the currency.  This is the price we will all pay for the greed of those who curry favor with Washington for their "piece of the pie".  Beware the tempter for the lunch is not only not free, it is very expensive.
