Why would I think of it as

Why would I think of it as splitting stocks? it's not.

i think of it exactly the way it is: Trying to decrease unemployment by making employment unnecessary. It's ludicrous.

People are unemployed NOW because they labored away at making things that their customers didn't want to buy, so their employers had to let them go. You can't fix that by handing out money. This is a most basic common sense kind of idea. We all know this to be true, but those people that we recognize as "gov't" are an impossibly slow lot, and seriously suggest ideas like this.

... which is why I can never tell if these kinds of proposals are serious or satirical, lol.
