I must confess, I received this in an email from my brother who received it from someone who...well, you know. I am not claiming that anything in this post is true (except most of it, but I don't feel like taking the time to prove it to people who haven't paid attention), so don't come yelling at me. Just check it out. It's hilarious.


From a Republican friend.

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years.

The first six the economy was fine. A little over one year ago:
1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.
4) the DOW JONES hit a record high--14,000 +
5) American's were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations o'seas, living large!...
But American's wanted 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress & yep--we got 'CHANGE' all right!...
1) Consumer confidence has plummeted;
2) Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon & climbing!;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS & prices still dropping;
5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.
6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another low~~11,300--$2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS has evaporated from their stocks, bonds & mutual funds investment portfolios!
Yep, in 2006 America voted for change!...and sure as heck got it!

NOW the DEM'S Candidate for president--and the polls say he's gonna be 'the man'--claims he's gonna REALLY give us (ka-ching) CHANGE!



Marvelous! Yes, the stock market did break 14,000. Yes, we did have a positive consumer confidence rating. Yes, we did have lower unemployment rates. Yes, we did have cheaper (although unlikeable) gasoline, and we also carried on as if there were no tomorrow. So what happened?

The democrats. If you don't get it now, chances are you never will. It is because of people like you we are suffering. Why don't you go away and ponder on that for awhile? Don't worry. You can make it back in time for the general election on November 5, 2008.

Shhhh! If you understand what I did, please don't say anything. If you do not understand what I did, it's no big deal. Just an inside joke. ;)

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
