I was just listening to a man on TV telling that every citizen in this country owed 80,000 dollars as their part of the national debt. He further stated the Obama bailout would wind up costing each American 28,000 dollars.
Someone asked him to break the debt and bailout down as to just those that actually pay taxes and see how it looked.
The fellow said that in that case it looked a little worse. He said before the bailout it was around 350,000 dollars per taxpayer and no telling how much higher it would go. This was because nobody seems to know how much the bailout was going to cost. He said as far as he knew right now it would go to at least 550,000 dollars per taxpayer and that was a conservative estimate.
Well, seeing as I am having enough trouble paying my bills as it is, after listening to all this my nerves got to bothering me somewhat and I had to pour up the first five gallons of homemade wine I made this year. It came in at 13 percent alcohol and that just didn’t sound like or taste like enough under the circumstances, so I added a gallon of 190 grain spirits. This tasted better.
I decided to write this while I sipped a glass or two to settle my nerves. This was strictly medicinal in nature you understand what with all the pressure of this old Republican and new Obama debt being piled on me (sip).
I not sure who is going to pay my share of this debt but I am almost positive it ain’t going to be me (sip) because I just Bless God ain’t able to do it (sip). I have got all I can wag with now (sip). Me working three jobs, young’uns, a blind dog, (sip) the old lady threatening to quit work (ssiipp). I feel like I need a bailout myself (sssiipp).
I think it’s time to start the march on Washington (sip). Ya’ll bring the pitchforks and torches and some turpentine to rub on the politician’s tails and I’ll bring the wine (ssssiippp).
How mush did he shay? 550,000? (hiccup)
Bailout smailout, once you get to thinking about it, that really ain’t all that much (sip).
I have heard of drinking oneself out of debt but Congress is getting ridiculous. AND IT AIN’T FUNNY!!!! (I am not kidding about the turpentine; just remember to vigorously apply a stiff brush to the application area first and then add the turpentine. The results will be well deserved and immediate.)
