1. Political Car Bashing Event - We'll have all senators and state representatives bring the cars in their household to Washington, where individuals can take free swings with a baseball bat. Call’em Porsche piñatas. With 100 senators and 435 state representatives, you’d have 1600 vehicles at a minimum. Besides economic stimulus, the electorate could let off some steam. It would be better than cash for clunkers – it would be the bash for flunkers.
2. Little Rascals Day - We'll give American children a bucket of baseballs and eight hours to break as many windows as possible - a national event with no spankings, groundings, or consequences. Let them loose on cars, houses, whatever. Think of all the fun in the neighborhoods. Red houses, blue houses, yellow houses. They could start with the White House.
3. The E-Party - We can develop a clay pigeon iPhone app and finally give the gun-totin’ Palin-lovin’ domestic militiamen something to shoot at. We can call it the E-Party against smartphones.
Or we can do as Krugman suggests, and have the Fed snatch up all the Treasury debt that is unloaded by China, since the whole setup is a self-licking ice cream cone anyway. We might even enjoy it.
