BunnyBoy: " I met this really smart Expatriate guy on line and he says your supposed oversight of my cash is against everything capitalism stands for". "Just fork over the dough Pops." "It's good for the economy".
BunnyDaddy: "Go borrow 60 bucks from this Expatriate guy then".
BunnyBoy: "Ummm...I tried that but I think he's a cheapskate cause when I asked him he kept mumbling all these big words like " malfeasance", " fiscal responsibility" and incompetence". What do those words mean Daddy?"
BunnyDaddy:" They mean it'll be a warm day in his igloo before he forks over 60 bucks". "Now go to your room and think about what you've done". "Oh, and just leave one of those Playboys here so I can give supervisional oversight to your fiscal stupidity".

Laugh Oh that was a good one. I could sit here for 50 years and never have thought up something like this. Laugh Laugh

Obama Wants to Cut Executive Pay 90 Percent

Actually, what happened was more like this:

Dem Girl: "Daddy, can I have $300? There's this pair of Italian shoes at the mall that I've just gotta have. Jennifer has a pair and I'm sooooo embarrassed to be walking around in what I have."

Dem Dad: Sure. "Son, lend your sister the money."

Dem Boy: "But Dad, you know I"ve been working my butt off all summer and I've got a car payment to make. Besides, she doesn't work; how is she going to pay me back?"

Dem Dad: "I can't believe you, son. Why do you hate your sister so much? You're just being greedy. There's no reason why you should have so much in your life while your sister has needs that aren't being met. Give her the money or you're grounded."

Dem Boy: "But..."

Dem Dad: "Now!!"

(Six months later)

Dem Girl: "Daddy, can I have $400 for a Prada backpack?"

Dem Dad: "Sure. Son, give her the money."

Dem Boy: "I can't. I'm broke. Thanks to all those 'loans,' my car's been repossessed and I'm working 12 hour days -- I'm not keeping up. My sister needs to be more responsible in her spending."

Dem Dad: "How can you say that! She's your sister, for goodness sake. I can't believe I raised my son to be such a deadbeat hater. I'll buy her the backpack this time, but you owe me that $400. You'd better go out and get a second job to pay for it."

Dem Boy: "Uhhh...thanks, Dad."

Dem Dad: "No problem. I'm just trying to help you. And by the way, since you owe me that money because you were so irresponsible, I'd really like you to take Hilda Lafburger to the prom."

Dem Boy: "WHAT?? I have a girlfriend, and besides...Hilda's like 400 pounds, smells like old cheese and has that thing on her face."

Dem Dad: "Don't give me that! You're the one that mismanaged your money! Thanks to you, your sister's ability to dress appropriately is suffering. Now do what I tell you or I'll call your boss and get you fired."

Hey you guys are to funny. With all honestly this whole thing has nothing to do with bailing out these companys. It is an admin. that wants to control everything . So the economy tanks you lose your job and need to collect unemployment which you have paid into for 25 years . You need to collect so you can feed your family . Since the gov is giving you an unemployment check [which is money you paid into for 25 years] they can tell you what store to shop at and what food you can buy your family. This admin.is about total control and nothing else . This is why we cant let them have control of our health care. PS the good thing is the pendulum has started to swing back the other way because even the union guys voted against Corzine in NJ the bluest of states. Union officials told them to vote for Corzine but a lot of them voted the other way.

Any leader knows that people respond to what you pay attention to. You don't even have to praise or condemn it -- just by noticing things people read your intentions and act accordingly.

So what's at the end of the road for a country that prioritizes need over ability and failure over success? Where are we going if we punish producers of wealth in order to subsidize consumers of it? What's going to happen when we demonize those who produce jobs and sanctify the unemployed?

Imagine if NASCAR took winnings from the top finishers and gave them to the bottom place finishers. It'd be a mad dash to see who could wreck their cars as close to the starting line as possible. The Daytona 500 would become the Daytona .001. No one would want to watch such a thing, so the stands would be empty. TV ratings would plummet. Sponsorship would evaporate over lack of viewership. Decreased revenue would dry up available prize money. Before you know it, the field would consist of teenagers driving beat up '92 Dodge Neons with numbers spray-painted on the doors by hand.
