Making The Connection…NOT

today_showI was watching the Today show this morning not out of choice, but out of love.  My wife likes to watch it and I was with her this morning.  I am not sure why she does not ask me to leave the room as I always feel the need to comment on their embedded bias.  They are not overt about their bias; I am pretty sure that they probably do not even recognize it.

Stimulus (stim – you – less)

Stimulus is defined as:

“Something that rouses or incites to action or increased action; incentive”

Synonyms:  inducement, provocation

Can you use it in a sentence?

President Barack Obama said the $787 billion economic stimulus plan is beginning to take hold and that work is coming in “ahead of schedule and under budget.”

Can you give me an example?

The stimulus package was hoisted on to the taxpayers as a means to “rebuild crumbling roads and bridges, modernize airports and shipyards, develop high-speed rail networks and restore aging public transit systems.
