Money to blow

I see where the government is thinking of sending all tax payers some money. Maybe as much as $800. Our fearless leaders are afraid there is or might be a recession and they hope this will jump start the economy – get people to spend money to revive the economy.
I think I’m like everyone. I’ll take the money (They took from me) but I have no intention to shop till I drop.
My plan, and maybe it should be the plan for many, is to pay down or off some credit cards. Tax time is coming and if you owe the IRS some money, you might just as well use your money to pay them. The price of fuel oil propane and electric getting you down? How about paying those bills and getting your tanks filled up so you don’t freeze to death?
In other word, unless you are rich, be smart with this money if it comes. Don’t go out and buy junk from China! Be smarter than our elected officials by lowering your debts.
That’s my plan. What’s yours?

A Wish List

A Wish List
I’m a bit bored and cynical today. In the mood of the song "Don’t Care Anymore" by Phil Collins.
I don’t care about Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, the Palestinians, Iran, any place in the Middle East or any Muslim country.
I don’t care who gets elected president. I figure, anyone dumb enough to want to be president deserves what they get.
Isn’t it amazing people running for president will spend more money than the job pays?
Global warming? In the 50’s there were predictions that palm trees would be growing in NYC Central Park within 10 years. The 70’s saw predictions the next ice age would arrive in 10 years. Now we are back to palm trees in NYC. Go figure.
But if the issue is pollution and how we humans are trashing the planet, there is only one practical solution: reduce the human population by half and hold it at half of what it now is. More people equals more pollution.
Here in New York, I am sick of Bruno, Silver and Governor Pitaki. They are three alpha males acting like monkeys. Please may there be aliens from a galaxy far, far away who will take these three away.
Speaking of aliens. We should let everyone in or keep everyone out. If we are going to keep everyone out, that should include Cubans and the English.
The way things are going, it might not be long before everyone wants to leave the USA for China to make a living.
Feel free to add your own "I don’t care anymore thoughts."
