Dear Mr. President

I haven't had a chance to post pictures or talk about what I've been up to...or not up to. Its been busy however I've had some chuckles and wanted to post those with you. Then I got this and I thought hey this is serious! THIS makes sense! Don't you agree??

This was an article from the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday.

The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?" this was the BEST idea....

I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President, Patriotic retirement: There's about 40 million people over 50 in the work force -pay them $1 million apiece severance with the following stipulations:

1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

3) They either buy a house/pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed. Can't get any easier than that! Even if we doubled the pmt to $2 million and mandated $500K into a 401K to boost up the financial reserves we would be spending billions less and accomplishing more.

Would you like to try it out? I think I would..*s*..
have a lovely day... Judi xoxo
