So President Obama has signed the Stimulus Bill to start us on the road to recovery. What I would like to know is, 'How this is going to help people who didn't do dumb stuff like take out a loan on a house that was overpriced and over(ly) large, spend to the limit on too many credit cards, and generally live beyond their means?'

The way I read it is that I now own a couple of banks, and part of a couple of car companies. If I'm lucky, and the state of Oregon doesn't tax me on a federal 'gift,' then I'm going to get $13 a week more in my paycheck. Whoopdef***igdoo. What am I missing here?
