I got this in an email...

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg , FL Times
Newspaper on Sunday..

The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How

Would You Fix the Economy?"

I think this
person 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!!!! 1 job opening

Dearest Lamby,

If ONLY it were that easy.

And BTW, "W" started the bailouts (with NO strings attached, I might add), not Obama.

Although in all fairness, Obama has disappointed as well (not prioritizing domestic economic recovery, sucking up to China and -ESPECIALLY - India, etc.).

"one american. one buillet." plan

American cars use up a lot of gas/petrol Lamby but I do like some of the other ideas.
Actually you do have a 'built in/on' sheepskin car seat cover sweetie, you're sitting on it. :) ♥

Simply pull the flush lever on the Whitehouse.

/t. said...

hey, LL

did you hear
that nbc may drop
jay leno? they're thinking
of replacing him with a new reality show to be hosted by former vp dick cheney, called "The Happy Hunting Ground" -- look forward to that!

also, i've heard it said that old republicans never retire -- they're just sent out on hunting trips with dick cheney...

you know your political career is in trouble when your next assignment is 'point' on a hunting trip with dick cheney...

yadda yadda

Little Lamb said...

Dianne, The usa cars that eat a lot of gas are the big gas guzzlers. And you have a point about my sheep skin.

Phos, let's do it together.

/t. I did hear Jay Leno wasn't doing well. Those old republicans better watch out!

dianne said...

Lol at /t., he's a funny guy. :D ♡

Little Lamb said...

Yeah, he's a real character!

Lon the Shepherd said...

He's my hero!

Little Lamb said...

Of course he is.

Skunkfeathers said...

LOL...Congress will NEVER vote themselves "down" to our level (aka, make themselves adhere to something they impose on us).

Fire the 'Crats in '10 and '12.

Little Lamb said...

That is all too true.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Before you can build a new house, you have to tear down the old one. Just saying.

As migration approached, two elderly vultures doubted they could make the trip south, so they decided to go by airplane.

When they checked their baggage, the attendant noticed that they were carrying two dead raccoons. "Do you wish to check the raccoons through as luggage?" she asked.

"No, thanks," replied the vultures. "They're carrion."

(there were a lot of vultures still in Florida when I was there.)

Little Lamb said...

I'm sure there were, we still get road kill and somebody has to clean up the mess.

Jon said...

HA! You've got it solved!!!

too bad most presidents are really bank robbers and have no interest in making things better... only in getting the cash out of the vault for their puppet masters

(sorry, i'm a bit of a pessimist)

;)

Little Lamb said...

All too true.

/t. said...

jon's right, LL

Thanks for stopping by.

Little Lamb said...

Then we should ask the muse.

Ruela said...

bearly domesticated boneman said...

Lil Lamb? Is that you with the "hippy haircut" at Diane's blog?
http://dianesaddledramblings.blogspot.com/

Little Lamb said...

You gave me the wrong address.

The Phosgene Kid said...

The Muse says "hop on one foot and cluck like a chicken..."

The Phosgene Kid said...

The Muse says: "Stop."

Little Lamb said...

Okie dokie!

bearly domesticated boneman said...

oops, sorry.

Here is the correct address.
I'm pretty sure, though, it was you in your 'hippy' days.
Quite becoming, actually.

Little Lamb said...

Where is the correct address?

The Phosgene Kid said...

Hillary is down in Haiti, with any luck they'll kill her an eat her for dinner. They'll have to eat dogshit to get the liberal taste out of their mouths though.

Little Lamb said...

We shall see what happens.

That poor lamb needs a hair cut. Oh lambs don't have hair, they have wool. That lamb needs to be sheared.

Unfortunately, we have a government that likes to stick to plans it KNOWS doesn't work. Obama has been a real disappointment. He's basically been a third Bush term.

Little Lamb said...

Obama is not doing what he said. He's making thing worse. His popularity is going down.

Ruela said...

you could handle it, yes you could!!!


lot of employers ...

Little Lamb said...

I dunno. Nobody is happy with the job the president does.

Ruela said...

"Happy Birthday, Mr. President"

Little Lamb said...

Mister?

After all, it is an Obamanation!!

Little Lamb said...

/t. Do you think Marilyn Mason likes lambs? Hey! Wait a minute! Doesn't the president get to choose their vice president?

Phos, Oh no! We've got to change that!

Jon Parsons said...

Hi little lamb,

just dropping by to say hi! hope all is well in your world!

Little Lamb said...

Hi Jon! Everything is fine. How is everything with you?

The Phosgene Kid said...

as long as it isn't Palin, I am not worried. Biden is the village idiot.

Little Lamb said...

I like Sarah Palin.

bearly domesticated boneman said...

I've got good news and I have bad news...
which do you want first?
(or both at once?)

Little Lamb said...

I'd like both at the same time.

Little Lamb said...

They do? Remind me never to be friends with a tiger.

bearly domesticated boneman said...

OK, first, the good news...
The president doesn't blow his own horn.

http://firstfarmandweatherreport.blogspot.com/2010/01/amazingly-funny-news.html

this is a news bit I put on my first farm and weather blog.

(of course, he wouldn't blow his own horn, would he, since he doesn't drive)

Now, the bad news...

http://firstfarmandweatherreport.blogspot.com/2009/12/with-55-of-american-prisoners-being-in.html

same blog, earlier post....but, terrible news...
I mean if you like Mike.
You know...
Sorry to burst so many bubbles all at the same time.
Heck...if you have a job, you've been getting stimulus money all along.
Heck...you get more stimulus money than I get money at all.
Heck, /t probably gets more stimulus money than I get money.
Cause, I haven't sold any pictures this year at all.
So...that ain't much, y'know?

(what tiger?)

Little Lamb said...

Obama's stimulus money didn't help me at all last year. In fact, I got paid less last year than the year before.

bearly domesticated boneman said...

you read the article?

well, at least the one.
Can you imagine how much less you would have made had the stimulus money not been paid to you?

Sorry you're doing so poorly, gal.
Really.

Course, I haven't made anything this year, yet, although the charity I give paintings to is sending me a check ("check's in the mail")
It won't be for much. But I still enjoy giving to needy people.

If you want, I'll send you a picture for free?
I kind'a like you...
I think it's because you have an opinion and you're not afraid to speak it.

(and I'm assuming you didn't like the 'I Like Mike' news bit, either? Sorry. I told you it was bad news, eh?)

Well, it's snowing here...so, back to painting and stoking the fireplace.

d=))

bearly domesticated boneman said...

by the way, I forgot to mention...
I am impressed by your opinion and your voicing it plainly and clearly....


even when it's wrong.

d=))

Little Lamb said...

how am I wrong?

True, my check would would have been a lot less without the stimulus money.

boneman said...

is just joke, m'dear.

I'm feeling better in mood now that I'm painting again.

d=))
