Depressed

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...

Can't drive a truck or even ride a camel so like many I'm up $hit Creek without a paddle!

LL said...

At least there is a job that I know I can do now...

Truck driving...

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, If you do drive that truck, don't let the Mooselimbs load the cargo.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

LL, trucks work, but don't let the Mooselimbs fill them.

Truth is stranger than fiction. FYI...Wilson and Roosevelt supported and subsidized the tobacco industry and even put out pro-smoking propaganda via their ad men cronies. We just keep bending over.
