I am so excited.



I just found out that I do not have to work anymore.



You see I got this e-mail from Nigeria from someone I donít know and they are going to transfer $23 million into my account.



At about the same time I got another one informing me that I won the Canadian lottery for another $15 Million.



I am glad that I got these e-mails because I was just about to take a work at home job offer and make $2,500 a week stuffing envelopes.



But now I wonít have to and I will have a lot more time on my hands.



Considering I am going to have all this free time and all this money I am sure that I will be real popular with the ladies.



But I am not concerned because I just ordered pills that are a combination of Viagra and Cialis with some natural ingredients.



They guarantee that I will be a stud in bed, satisfy endless women and at the same time clean out my colon and allow me to lose 30 pounds in 3 days.



Yeah RightÖÖ..In My Dreams



But this is no different than the way our government continues to treat us on a regular basis.



They are going to provide Health Care to every man women in child (legal or not).



A program that is going to cost trillions of dollars and they are going to do this with no significant tax increases.



They implemented a stimulus package that was supposed to stimulate the economy.



It appears to only have stimulated the bonuses of the executives of the bailed out companies.



And after paying out these bonuses some of these companies are still going belly up.



And if you hadnít noticed the national unemployment rate just rose above 10%



Doesnít sound like much of a stimulus package to me.



But we continue to play the fools and believe these people.



And we continue to pump millions into their campaigns so that they can make their lobbyists and lawyers rich.



I have lost track of how many elected officials have been indicted and convicted over the past 10 years.



And many of them continue to collect their paychecks while they fight the charges with campaign funds.



In many cases they keep their taxpayer paid pensions even if convicted.



But we continue to allow this to go on.



We allow state after state to legalize more and more types of gambling and more and more citizens particularly seniors are losing their paychecks or pensions on all sorts of state sponsored lotteries.



They want to bring slots to the race tracks and donít be too surprised if they wind up selling Governorís Island to some Native American entity to open a casino closer to home for all those people chasing that dollar for a dream.



And the government allows it to go on and they canít even do that right.



Just look at what they did with OTB.



But I digress.



What it all comes down to is too many people want to believe the promises that they are fed during every election.



They want to believe in these no substance solutions just like they want to believe in the e-mails they receive every day.



We need to wake up.



We need to see legislation while it is in committee before it is voted on.



We need to know if our representatives are actually representing us.



And we need to vote them out if they are not.



If we donít we might as well wait for that next e-mail from our new friend in Nigeria.
