God told the children of Israel , "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will evlead 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, and everything... I 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.
