How much??? Are you sure this is stimulus....

Ron is going to try to go back to work tomorrow. It will be difficult because he's still on crutches and must keep his leg elevated. Thank you for your prayers and all your wonderful cards.

Ron is trying to enjoy his last few hours here at home. He sent me an e-mail that I couldn't resist posting. Sounds pretty much like the real thing to me.....

The Stimulus Plan

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House. One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota. All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$2,700."

The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

The Chicago contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."

"Done!" Replies the government official.

And that, my friends, is how the new stimulus plan will work.

All kidding aside, does anyone else see the huge major problems we are sailing into? Where's all the critics that were hounding Bush? Where's all the reporters that want to tell the "entire" story? There's mounds and mounds of dirt laying all around and these simple minded liberal reporters are refusing to investigate.

I think Washington Dems have gone wild with power. They are like kids in a candy store and to find their favorite piece they are tearing down the displays.

Mr. Obama doesn't seem to have a clue. He just likes to ride on Air Force One - wasting thousands of our much needed money while insisting we should all go green. Do we really have a president or is it just a free for all?

I still believe God is going to help the "faithful" Christian to survive - but boy what a wild ride it's gonna be!

What do you think?

God loves you,
