Just got this info on the People’s Stimulus Package via Peter Shankman’s HARO (Help a Reporter Out). I love this approach. We really can make a difference if we are asked to do something reasonable and meaningful. I try real hard to stay non-political here but one quiet criticism I have of President Obama is that he has never told us what we could do. I wanted so badly for that ringing call of President Kennedy when he said ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country. My gosh, that has been the key to all our national crises from our very foundations. We will pitch in, we will sacrifice, we will join together. But this crisis has been different. Never in my recollection has anything been asked of us other than to trust our government and be patient. The emphasis has always been on what the government will do and is doing to fix things. I’m glad they are doing things, but I want to do things too and I think about 300 million or so would be glad to help. Just give us a hint!
Well, here is one. $2 bills.
