Not By Choice

So, over at the trainwreck that is recovery.gov, I find a few curious tidbits.
We are asking the American people to trust their government with an unprecedented level of funding to address the economic emergency.
Really? I don't recall being asked. I seem to recall it went down more along the lines of "Here's what we're gonna do, suck it up and pay for it." Good thing they didn't ask, since I don't trust the government to handle the problem at all, much less responsibly.

Another funny from the same site:
This is your money. You have a right to know where's it going and how it's being spent.
How nice. I have a right to know what my money is doing, but not the right to decide where it's going or the right to, I dunno, keep it. Interesting how that works, isn't it?
