Giving notice to a few people.
Hasn’t this been a week to remember? President Bush has opened the door to deepen the deficit, as if it were not deep enough now.
Finally, for those who have been paying attention, you will notice that Tiger Woods is plugged into his cap, allowing my telepathic tutoring during the Buick Open. Way to go Tiger, just one more day, and it will be a four-plete.
To President Bush:
Mr. President you have finally insulted my intelligence. It would not take a lot to accomplish that task but you have managed to do it quite nicely. It is amazing to me that “To stimulate the economy” you want to give us poor schmucks, the taxpayers, a tax rebate. How stupid do you think we are? No matter how much money ends up in our pockets, do not call it a rebate. To me that implies the taxes we originally paid, were erroneous. Call it whatever you want, but do not call it a rebate.
At the beginning of your first term, you took control of The White House and a balanced budget. Not long after you became “the decider” you handed out checks to the American people and immediately threw our nation into a spiraling deficit. To add misery to that, after the horrendous events of 9/11 you launched an attack on Afghanistan…then left because you thought you had bigger fish to fry in Iraq. That was a “Wow” moment in your administration, thanks to the likes of Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney. Only then did you learn that you could not run a war “on the cheap”
To summarize, Mr. President, within the first 90 days of your administration you drove our nation into a financial deficit. You sent our young men and women directly into harms way, which is costing us trillions of dollars and you thought if you flew a million dollar jet aircraft onto a carrier ship and declared “Mission Accomplished” that you had succeeded. Right? No, because now you want the American people to spend “funny money” That is, money that does not really exist. No one has clearly explained where this money is coming from.
If you are hell bent on sending the checks, send away…but think about this. If a family of four gets a check don’t you think they will be more likely to do responsible things like; pay bills, buy groceries, put gas in their car, then perhaps they might go out to dinner, if there is any money left.
This temporary solution would be better served, by extending unemployment compensation for those who are out of work. This money should be spent on education, healthcare, job training or finding shelter and care for homeless veterans.
Mr. President if you did those things I just listed, you could finally say “Mission Accomplished.” Until then sir, your actions are as funny as the money you want to spend.
To Tiger Woods:
Tiger, just remember what I’ve been teaching you, and yesterday a few times your cap was slightly askew, which causes my telepathic messages to be impeded. Just think about it, if you win today (Sunday 1/27/08) and I think you will, your victory will be four in a row. Your welcome in advance, it is my pleasure to help.
