Patriotic Retirement Plan   Leave a comment

My sister sent me this email that I think is so fantastic that I have to share it

it goes like this:

there recently was an article in St. Petersburg Florida Times.  The business section asked it’s readers for ideas on how to fix the economy.  One man wrote in this

Dear Mr. President>

Please find below my suggestion for fixing American’s economy.  Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.
You can call it the “Patriotic Retirement Plan”

there are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.  Pay them one million dollars a piece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations

  they MUST retire. Forty million job openings – Unemployment fixed

2)  They MUST buy a new American car.   Forty million cars ordered – Auto industry fixed

3) they MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage  Housing Crisis fixed

it can’t get any easier than that!

P.S   if more money is needed, have all members in congress pay their taxes.
Mr. President, while you are at it make congress retire on social security and medicare.  I am betting both programs would be fixed pronto!

How cool is that?
🙂

half here   Leave a comment

in the movie “Shawshank Redemption”  one of the lines Morgan Freeman says is “Get busy living, or get busy dying”

sometimes that line haunts me.
sometimes I feel like I am living half a life

and it isn’t so much that I am missing out on the good things in life, that isn’t it at all.
I have the good things in life.
I just mean I feel half fulfilled.
like I am not up to my full potential.

I think of going back to school and then I think who would hire a 52-year-old (which is how old I would be after I finished college, providing I got started right away)

I don’t have a lot of confidence in myself, I know.
I have been told before that I am my own worst critic.
And I don’t think it is that as much as I am being realistic.

I might not be the brightest crayon in the box, but I do think I know a thing or two……..

I sometimes feel like this picture

  that I’m here but I blend in so well, that if you aren’t really looking, you won’t see me.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not depressed, I am just feeling thoughtful today…….
