    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.

    Oh, come on, now, TM.

    Vredit where credit is due.

    Regardless of our political bent, that rant was funny as hell.

    I never wanted a shovel. I wanted a computer and a Big Mac and I have both. I'm glad I can drive my car down the road built by my taxes and buy both.

    Well, you just keep hoping that someday the Wizard of Oz will give you a fucking brain like he did the straw man.
