Football, Fries and Government Spending

I woke up with every mus­cle of my body aching after a ton of shov­el­ing and over­slept a bit so I rolled over and turned on Fox News Sun­day to lis­ten to Nancy Pelosi talk about how evil the Seques­tra­tion (that she voted for) and how dra­con­ian the cuts have ALREADY been in the government.

Let’s take a look at how severe these cuts have been via US Gov­ern­ment Spend​ing​.com

federal spending

Just to put this in per­spec­tive World War 2 in 2013 dol­lars cost 3.7 Tril­lion (in 2013 dollars).

Unfor­tu­nately to the low infor­ma­tion voter of today who re-​elected this admin­is­tra­tion, those fig­ures cause the eyes to glaze over so lets put it in two ways any Amer­i­can can under­stand: Foot­ball & Fries.

Accord­ing to Forbes the entire com­bined value of every sin­gle NFL fran­chise is $26.014 Billion.

Using 2008 as a bench­line from 2009 to 2011 Barack Obama has increased spend­ing by enough to pur­chase every fran­chise in the NFL 61 times.

That’s enough to put 6 new NFL Fran­chises in EVERY CITY in the US with over 100,000 peo­ple.

And that’s not even count­ing 2012 If you add 2012 spend­ing that’s enough to open 4 McDon­alds Fran­chises in every sin­gle city town and Ham­let in the United states so peo­ple can eat after all those foot­ball games.

So the next time you hear Nancy Pelosi or another Demo­c­rat talk about how much the Pres­i­dent has cut spend­ing ask them what they want to name those 6 new NFL teams in San Francisco…

…and ask if she wants fries with that.

Update: The num­ber of NFL fran­chises per US city of 100,000 Obama’s increased spend­ing would pay for is is 6 not 9 (cor­rected above). So that of course makes it OK.

It’s a new week and I’m hop­ing for a new paycheck

Unlike the US gov­ern­ment I’m look­ing for the same $300 base­line as last week.

To those who have thanks again, to those who have not, I’ll keep try­ing to raise my game.

federal spending

Just to put this in perspective World War 2 in 2013 dollars cost 3.7 Trillion (in 2013 dollars).

Unfortunately to the low information voter of today who re-elected this administration, those figures cause the eyes to glaze over so lets put it in two ways any American can understand: Football & Fries.

According to Forbes the entire combined value of every single NFL franchise is $26.014 Billion.

Using 2008 as a benchline from 2009 to 2011 Barack Obama has increased spending by enough to purchase every franchise in the NFL 61 times.

That’s enough to put 6 new NFL Franchises in EVERY CITY in the US with over 100,000 people.

And that’s not even counting 2012 If you add 2012 spending that’s enough to open 4 McDonalds Franchises in every single city town and Hamlet in the United states so people can eat after all those football games.

So the next time you hear Nancy Pelosi or another Democrat talk about how much the President has cut spending ask them what they want to name those 6 new NFL teams in San Francisco…

…and ask if she wants fries with that.

Update: The number of NFL franchises per US city of 100,000 Obama’s increased spending would pay for is is 6 not 9 (corrected above). So that of course makes it OK.
