i got this in an email.


The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?"

I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President:

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy.

Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.

Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings -
Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new American car. Forty million cars ordered-
Auto Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage-
Housing Crisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!

If more money is needed, have all members of Congress

and their constituents pay their taxes...

If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.

If not, please disregard. Then shoot yourself!!!!

I think 40,000,000,000,000 is more money than exists in the world. But of course they are printing more as we speak...

As a form of currency it went out of circulation on 1/16/89. It is a valued collectible though and we may have to use it as a barter item when they print up that 40 Trillion.

The guy needs a few math lessons.

How about knocking one zero off the total but keeping the same stipulations? Then we'd only have to shell out $4 trillion, which is right about the total for all that so-called stimulus.

My political philosophy is very simple - Give to each group of people what they ostensible desire based on their voting patterns. Folks who vote for tax increases should have their taxes increased, while those of us who vote for lower taxes should have our's lowered.

In other words, raise taxes on Democrats/liberals and lower taxes for Republicans/conservatives. Everyone wins!

And just to keep things fair, only those folks who voted to increase their own taxes should be given Government "services" e.g. government run health care and live under Government scrutiny e.g. no SUV's, no guns, et al. Meanwhile those of us who voted to lower our taxes will just have to make due with our own God-given wits without any help from the Government.


Any takers?

Reagan left office.
While one of the better ones to fill the office, even Reagan corrupted the office. you may want to push that date back about a century and a quarter.

Are you thinking that Thursday, March 4, 1841 should have been an example all the rest followed?
