Dear Barack,

Hey! How’s Hawaii??? I hope your making up for all that golfing you didn’t do while you wanted to appear to understand the problems facing Americans during the past election. Ha Ha ha, that worked great, didn’t it?

I’m not sure if you’re reading the news this morning (probably sleeping in) but unemployment report is in and it’s 7.8%. Damn that Bush. Is his bad economy going to plaguing you for all 8 years? And then there’s this:

A broader measure of unemployment—which includes job seekers as well as those in part-time jobs—was 14.4% in December, the same as the prior month. The data showed even with the job growth, 12.2 million people who wanted a job couldn’t find one last month, a slight increase from November.

Wow, 14.4%. 12.2 million people.

Well, don’t let that ruin your vacation. I’m sure they don’t let the unwashed, unemployed masses near you anyway.

Hugs,

Carin

P.S – I came across this little story I thought you might fight fun reading. It’s a sad story of the humiliation those on foodstamps are forced to endure.

A woman walked into a Wal-Mart and tried to buy several iPads with her EBT card. Twice. Food stamps for iPads. Tracy Browning, a 38-year-old Louisville, Kentucky woman, allegedly attempted to purchase the Apple tablets using an Electronic Benefit Transfer card, then assaulted store employees and took off with the merchandise when it didn’t work.

Wal-Mart, apparently, believes that iPads are only for the 1%.

*cries*

Maybe we should change the name of the EBT program to OPM — Other People’s Money. It seems that some people, this lady to as an extreme example, have forgotten that government handouts don’t come from the money tree on the White House lawn. The government can’t give you something without taking it away from someone else first.

That’s not true, is it?
