Gives a small smile

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!!
P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes..
Mr. President, while you're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed pronto!

Made me a little happier today.We can always use a good laugh

Nit picking here - but do you really think any large consumable item is fully Made in America any more?
Really?

"2) They MUST buy a new AMERICAN Car. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed."

Re: Gives a small smile

What part made you laugh: the part where you liked chain mail bullshit or the part where you liked "fixing" the economy by spending $40 trillion?

Math is lollable

I actually called those suggestions into a late night radio talk show in early 2009.

Leave it to this guy to all upset about a joke.

Who knows they might end up spending 40 trillion in the end? Was still a pretty good laugh.

came here to say this.

It's funny to think about but... clearly wouldn't work. Not that what we're doing now will work either, that is.

I'm not upset. Would you like me to post an email I received about my paypal account being deactivated or about the grand sum of money a Nigerian prince wants to give me? They're hilarious.
