Los Angeles museum director unveils brilliant plan to save national economy by shipping rocks across America (satire)
“When a Los Angeles museum spent $10 million to move a large boulder across California and use it as a museum attraction, museum director Michael Govan told Reuters the activity was a tremendous boon to the economy. “You couldn’t ask for a better gift to the economy right now than to be paying iron workers, truck drivers, concrete, construction workers,” he said.”
“This is true. Check the source at: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/09/us-art-rock-idUSBRE82818C20120309“
“Shortly thereafter, local California bureaucrats — most of whom flunked Economics 101 in college — urged Govan to unveil a national plan to boost the economy by hiring fleets of iron workers, truck drivers and construction workers to move rocks back and forth across the country on giant trucks.
“It will create over one million jobs!” declared California’s home-grown economic genius Nancy Pelosi, who also chimed in with the idea of adding Christmas lights to all the rocks so that trucks driving back and forth across the nation would be “beautiful to watch at night.””
“Nancy Pelosi hailed this idea as, “More awesomer!” and immediately began to consider what else might be destroyed in order for the government to create more jobs.
Just yesterday, a top Pentagon official answered that question with a fascinating proposal that the Chicago School of Economics heralded as pure genius: “Let’s bomb all the cities after the rocks move through,” he suggested, pointing out that the post-bombing rebuilding efforts would require millions of concrete workers, steel workers, glass workers, landscape workers, insurance professionals and a huge team of even more bureaucrats to shuffle all the paperwork.
President Obama released a supporting statement shortly thereafter: “Our economic policy has always focused on the destruction of America as a way to boost the national economy, so we wholeheartedly support this plan to rebuild America!””
