>>> Fence
>>> Three contractors bid to fix a broken fence at the White House. One is from Chicago, another is from Kentucky and the third is from New Orleans. All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.
>>> 
>>> The New Orleans contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil.
>>> 
>>> "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $9,000. That's $4,000 for materials, $4,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me."
>>> 
>>> The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $7,000. That's $3,000 for materials, $3,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me."
>>> 
>>> The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$27,000."
>>> 
>>> The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys. How did you come up with such a high figure?”
>>> 
>>> "The Chicago contractor whispers back, "$10,000 for me, $10,000 for you, and we hire the guy from Kentucky to fix the fence."
>>> 
>>> "Done!" replies the government official.
>>> 
>>> And that, my friends, is how all of  the Government Stimulus plans work!
>>> 
>>> Remember ... Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.
>>> 
>>> "I love my country ... it's the government I'm afraid of!"
