Biting The Bullet ... Cutting Expenses ...

I HOPE YOU WILL PARTICIPATE, AND DO YOUR PART !

The  President ordered the cabinet to cut a whopping $100 million from the $3.5 trillion federal budget!
I'm so impressed by this  sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing with my personal budget.  I spend about $2000 a month on groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc, but it's time to get out the budget cutting ax, go line by line through my expenses, and cut back!
I'm going  to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio -1/35,000 of my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $2000 a month; I'm going to have to cut that number by six cents!

Yes, I'm going to have to get by with  $1999.94, but that's what sacrifice is all about. I'll just have to do  without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries. (Did the pres actually  think no one would do the math?)

  5. Obama assumes that one hundred million sounds like a ton of money to most people. Alinsky tactics. Lies and obfuscation.

  7. We have to pay all those "non-essential" govt. workers though. How will we survive without them if govt. shuts down? Wisconsin has one worker for every 181 citizens. I want my own staff too!

  11. You would be worth every penny Odie--however there is no collective bargaining under my contratural rules. You might want to read the fine print concerning overtime and kickbacks though.

  12. Scott, if it were merit pay, I would earn a cool million. I was in a union for thirty years and all they did was to hold me back.

  13. Very sad to think that this guy is our President. The comparison to his budget cuts and the 6 cents in a personal budget is very instructive. I am linking to this over at TCL FB. Thanks for posting it, Odie.

  14. Of course they hoped nobody would do the math! They want blind acceptance... sigh...

  15. That's a big bumper sticker. It would only take two or three of those to cover the whole bumper of a Smart Car.
