5. Once--The Government--Built things
The "teapartiers" say government doesn't produce jobs.

Hmmm.....who funded the Interstate Highway system?? Or, Grand Coulee Dam, or the Hoover Dam...or who was it that set things up for having men walk on the moon???

Also....who the hell pays the police and firefighters?? I thought that those were "public" jobs...paid for by the local government?

Government doesn't create jobs?? Since when??
