Hey, we seem to want to do one better than China in everything these days … so let’s see how our new commitments in energy, health care, and education (i.e. paying off the unions) turn out as compared to this:…

The National Stadium, known as the Bird’s Nest, has only one event scheduled for this year: a performance of the opera “Turandot” on Aug. 8, the one-year anniversary of the Olympic opening ceremony. China’s leading soccer club backed out of a deal to play there, saying it would be an embarrassment to use a 91,000-seat stadium for games that ordinarily attract only 10,000 spectators.

The venue, which costs $9 million a year to maintain, is expected to be turned into a shopping mall in several years, its owners announced last month.

A baseball stadium that opened last spring with an exhibition game between the Dodgers and the San Diego Padres, is being demolished. Its owner says it also will use the land for a shopping mall.

That’s is what we are getting in the stimulus. And that is what we are getting when the President blithely commands every single American to go obtain a single year of college education or vocational training. You know, just sitting in a college classroom for a year will not only make YOU rich, it will make us the most rich and powerful empire the world has ever seen.
