- And NO, I’m not voluntarily going to pay MORE taxes…I’m Taxed Enough Already.
Maybe I can ‘save the planet’ and ‘go green’ (without transferring any cash for carbon credits from Al Gore) at the same time I cut back?
- Making ice cubes takes energy, so I can lower my energy bill and my carbon footprint by not drinking my Scotch on the rocks, but straight with water by. This should also take the edge off the blazing hypocrisy of our present “raise taxes AND spending” politicians.
After all….it’s the least I can do to acknowledge their doing the least they can do.
‘We are cutting back and you may want to also….
We’re going to bite the bullet, too!!!!
President Obama ordered the cabinet to cut $100,000,000.00 ($100 million) from the $3,500,000,000,000.00 ($3.5 trillion) federal budget.
I’m so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing with my personal budget.
I spend about $3,000 a month on groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it’s time to get out the budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and cut back.
I’m going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio (1/35,000) of my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $3,000 a month, I’m going to have to cut that number by nine cents. Yes, I’m going to have to get by with $2999.91, but that’s what sacrifice is all about.
I’ll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries – nine cents worth. Guess I’ll have to put a little less Vermouth in my Manhattan, or give up lemon in my gin and tonic!!!!! Tough decision!
Did this President actually think no one would do the math? The monetary figures are tough to grasp…. but with this illustration it’s easily understood that President Obama isn’t serious about reducing spending.
Please send this to everyone on your list so people understand how idiotic a $100 million cut is in a $3.5 trillion budget – ludicrous!!!!!!!
