From The 'No Shit' Files

Has Southern Nevada seen any stimulus jobs?

This Southern Nevada and Clark County to which they refer to includes Las Vegas, Henderson, Mesquite, Laughlin, as well as a few other little piss-ant towns scattered around the desert. They all add up to a population of around 1.9 million according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Southern Nevada has about 13% unemployment, which add up to around 247,000 people. So 250 jobs for 247,000 people.
Nice. That ends up being .1% (1 tenth of one percent!) of all the unemployed people here now have a job since $60,000,000 came our way.

$240,000 each, for a job that will last 6 weeks to 1 year. That's an expensive fucking employee.

I can't decide if our portion is considered a drop in the bucket or a whole lotta feel good hot air coming from the idiots in Washington. I'm going to go out on a limb here and just say "both".

IMHO, We have yet to see any even mediocre-scale job creation by way of the "stimulus". What we need is jobs on a rather large scale, and the stimulus hasn't done squat!

PS - on the NRA thing, I'm on your side. Honest.
