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 the government has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses,
raised the price of Camels,

and mortgaged the Promised Land to China!

I was so depressed last night thinking about my retirement, the
economy, the wars, lost jobs, etc . . .

I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English. I was then
connected to a call center in Pakistan.

I told them I was suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could
drive a truck......

The sun is still shining and we are weathering the storms lol

I am not sure if this is an appropriate response, but this post made me chuckle.;))
I too am worried sick these days about my economy, as I am trying to sell a house at the worst possible time. Aw.
I hope you can still have a lovely Monday, at least you still have not lost your sense of humour.;)

We have not seen the worst of it yet....
The euro is a fake currency with no real back up.
The Brits not only refused to back it but they just plain refused to join it.
How can Europe be amalgamated into one big salad...?
If the euro was disbanded...then financial stability will happen....

zuzana = it's a joke but relates very well to the insanity the world is in today.

baron I think I agree.
Time to step back and care about your own people.
Its never a good idea to spread oneself too thin.
