Shovel Ready in the Promised Land

This may have been around the block a few times, but it’s new to me. I picked it up from Retriever, who lifted it from Jewel (who also has a link to an Oriana Fallaci tape, one of my personal heros, along with Geert Wilders who I see now they are going to retry) They are both excellent blogs.

And since it is a chain letter, by all means spread it around.


"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!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc . . . called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English. I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck......"
