Capitalism to the rescue with a real stimulus plan

Leave it to a private businessman to offer some stimulus that makes sense.  It seems obvious now, but who else but a true capitalist would come up with a great way to encourage new business?  

Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, is offering funding for those who share their idea for a new business on his blog.  The really interesting part is that he is calling it an "open source funding environment".  Since the plan will be available to all who visit the blog, there is a good chance others will "steal" the plan and duplicate it elsewhere in the country.  After all, he says the idea is to help the whole country, not just one or two.

What a refreshing idea this is compared to the absurd pork spending that our government is offering.  It's comical to even suggest that our overbloated, non-functional government would know anything about starting a competent business.
