Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel ,
"Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."
Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said,
"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land."
Today, the present economy has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, immigration, etc . . . I called a Suicide Hotline.
I had to press 1 for English. I was connected to a call center in Pakistan .
I told them I felt suicidal.
They sounded excited and asked if I could drive a truck. I don't get it. [more]
