We're Screwed

Sorry for the crude title of this post--I hate that phrase, but it's appropriate here. Most of you have probably seen this, as it's not new, but it cropped up on Facebook after the election and brought a few chuckles into our house. The author is unknown.

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, Congress 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, 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 was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck.

Folks, we're screwed.
