Shovel Ready Nation

One big worry for big government lovers who are pushing for Obama’s stimulus plan to include more government spending and less tax cuts is that “there’s a limited supply of ‘shovel-ready’ projects that can be started soon enough. [1]

Thanks to mother nature this worry is now entirely misplaced. As the pictures below [2] indicate there are thousands, if not millions, of shovel ready projects across the United States today. And when it snows again, all these jobs will be re-created all over. So hurry up Congress and get these shovelers some checks!!!
