Nobody Gets Email
The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S.Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year, the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 46 million people. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.” Their stated reason for the policy is because “The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”This ends today’s lesson in irony.
Which reminds me…
The other day while I was waiting in line at the Post office, I struck up a converstaion with the woman in front of me. I found out that she had moved down here from Chicago, and that she was worried about getting a job. She had been on unemployment for two whole years, and was having trouble finding one becasue she wasn’t familiar with computor programs.
“You can get free lessons at the library.” I told her.
But, she really didn’t WANT a job. What she really wanted was to keep getting unemployment until she got to retirement age, which in her case was three years away. SO…in her mind, the govenment should support her until she retired.
And I remember thinking, and so this is why he got elected….when you feed the bears…they come back for more.
Something tells me, that lady will get her wish.
