Following up on yesterday’s post, I found this in the SBA’s summery of the Economic Stimulus Act concerning guaranteed SBA loans:

Under the Recovery Act, no funds may be used by any state or local government or any private entity, for any casino or gambling establishment, aquarium, zoo, golf course of swimming pool.

NO_ZOOI can understand excluding casinos and gambling joints.  They don’t actually create anything.  They just extract money from gamblers.  But I don’t get the other exclusions (or lack thereof).  A golf course or swimming pool is a no-no, but a go cart track or video arcade is ok?  What about one of those places that sells dirty movies and other “adult” products.  I guess those are alright.

One marvels at the logic used by our elected employees in Washington, DC.

Have a great weekend!
