It’s always nice to hear from old friends, even when said old friends are unsettling you with tales of insane government spending. When last we heard from former Acton colleague Michelle McAdoo here on the PowerBlog, she was taking Washington by storm with her proposal for an “alternative stimulus.” In the interceding time, she’s gotten married (congratulations!) and now has returned with more tales from the dark and unsettling world of “stimulus.” Enjoy!

Update/Clarification: Michelle adds: “just so you know, not all of these gov’t spending programs are part of the stimulus. it is more of a video to show how reckless all parties are. the prostitutes example was a 2008 spending program, though the turtle tunnel was stimulus.”
