We Need Men of His Calibre

Calculated Risk is running a neat little contest-lette to pick the worst ideas for an economic stimulus package (link). There are 195 comments so far. “Straw Buyer” suggests “A five million dollar tax on bicycle tires to be used for private jet subsidies.”

The giacutter solution: Money cannons. Like the type used to launch clowns across circus tents.

Set up these money cannons at the tallest point of each municipality in the US and stuff in $100s and $20s. The amount of stimulus limited only by 1) the size of the cannon and 2) the denomination of bills.

Fire said cannons at a designated time of the day and voila........instant stimulus!

No, wait, this is a competition for worst ideas. …
