Check out these emails

These are a couple emails I got.....


Got this from a friend:

“We were in Pigeon Forge over the week end. We left to come home on Sunday. Traffic was moving slowly, and a car in front of us had an Obama bumper sticker that read: "Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8".

“Mike's Bible was lying on the dash board. He got it and opened it up to the scripture and read it. He started laughing and laughing. Then he read it to me. I couldn't believe what it said. I had a good laugh, too.”

Psalm 109:8
"Let his days be few; and let another take his office."


Heres email # 2....Fixing our nations economy

The Fix


There recently was an article in the St. Petersburg Fl. Times. 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 fixe d.

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!

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

If not, please disregard.

A government bailout of $40,000,000,000,000 is the answer? There are many more flaws with this plan, but I'll just start with the 40 TRILLION DOLLAR bailout.

I think the point there on the last one...is not how much money from the government, but rather who it goes to, and how they spend it.

I still disagree with it. The government telling people how they have to spend their money is wrong, regardless from where it came.

Please don't misconstrue my comments as an attack against you, I know you didn't come up with plan.
