The Arizona Desert Lamp

Keggers across America!

Posted in Politics, Random by Connor Mendenhall on 9 February 2009

Looks like I’m not the only one in favor of government keggers for economic stimulus. From a Goldwater Institute article published last May covering the atrocious SPEED program

On May 1, the state Senate Higher Education committee held a hearing on a proposal from Arizona’s state universities to build new facilities ostensibly to stimulate the economy. Governor Napolitano, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon and Arizona State University President Michael Crow all spoke in favor. Their message was that this new debt would more than pay for itself by increasing the number of Arizona workers with college degrees.

Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman stole the show, noting that ASU students have a high per capita beer consumption rate, and that all that beer money provides an economic stimulus to Tempe. Just when you think you’ve heard it all.

Watch out, Cato 200. Here comes the Lamp 2.
