A Dialogue for the September 12th World

The Promised Land

Posted by Mark on March 25, 2010

If I knew where this came from, I’d credit it.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , “pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land”.
Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land”.
Now Obama 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. . . .
I called Lifeline, the suicide help line.
Got a call center in Pakistan ..
I told them I was suicidal.
They all got excited and asked if I could drive a truck…
