This is just an idea that was in the business section of the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday..

The Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.

Pay them $1 million a piece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered. Auto Industry fixed.

They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!

If more money is needed,have all members of Congress and their constituents pay their taxes...

See, it's thinkin like this that we need more of. And what the hell, I'd be all for it. A million times a million - hm, what is that, like, a bajillion? Multiply that times forty... hm, yeah, 40 bajillion dollars. We can handle that. Why not?

Makes as much sense as anything obama's done... and with this plan, some of the CITIZENS ACTUALLY GOT THE MONEY... at least for a while.

Doesn't matter anyway, some people's ideas about money are so hopelessly confused or deliberately obtuse there doesn't seem to be the least connection between them and fact... whew! After RL's ignorant and disgusting comments about Milton Freidman, probably the kindest, most gentle, loving, giving person and Nobel Prize winner in human history, I realize he's willing to espouse anything as long as it elevates his agenda, in whatever small, ney, tiny way.

There's one person responsible for you: YOU. Not the government. The only thing you should want free from the government is yourself!

I'm not going to argue with mrwilder, that would be a waste of time and space, and since I hate entropy and really don't remember what these "ignorant and disgusting comments about Milton Freidman" are that he so insultingly refers to, I can't defend them either, especially since I don't see what it has to do with the topic at hand (besides the obvious fact that it all generally relates to 'Economy' and 'Economics'). I also find it odd that you're such a fan of a guy who advocated a negative income tax (which from what I know of it seems like a great idea). Nor do I understand the constant "There's one person responsible for you: YOU. Not the government" harrrppgarrbling. Nobody I know of around here ever said otherwise. The government should ideally be there for SOME reason - but there is, of course, always a price. It's not free.

Must get kinda gross still suckin' on that knob after the guy's been dead for 2 years, though.
