The Patriotic Retirement Plan

I received this (below) in an E-mail. Sorry about the post-and-run lately. I WILL find time to read your blog! Hopefully soon.

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on last Sunday 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 fixed.
It can't get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress and their constituents pay their taxes...

If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know. If not, please disregard.

It's ODD Day today!

It's Odd Day today, go forth and celebrate, in the most odd way you can, of course.

So why is today Odd Day?

It's 05-07-09 today (just a hint)

I even heard on the radio that some local place is giving a prize for the most odd Odd Day.

Well, have a good Odd Day everyone!
