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!
Now, in Canada, they can only retire at 67, not 65. The government officials get the big bucks in their pocket and can retire at 55 with full pension while the tax payers, us, slave for *pennies*, and they're even getting rid of *those*, go figure.
I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Old Age Security, retirement funds, etc. ... I called a Suicide Hotline.
I had to press 3 for English.
I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal.
They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck...
Folks, we're screwed...
