Depressed....



From some email Valerie Jane at 2 seconds more got:

I am depressed…

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land.”

Today, the U.S. has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc . . … I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English.

When I did that, I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck…
