Brilliant Idea

My friend and co-worker Brian had a great idea today! I mean it was actually brilliant! It took a second for me to fully absorb the the depth and the genius of the plan.
He said that since the government is in a debt forgiving mood, (to the tune of over a half a trillion dollars of bad mortgages held by huge banks), that we should slip in a provision that would have Uncle Sam pay off our mortgages too. I mean wipe the slate clean for everyone.
That simple law would send this country on an unprecedented spending frenzy. I'd go out and buy a new Taylor T5 guitar....and while at it, I'd buy that Porsche I've been wanting for so long.
One guy at lunch, when I detailed the plan, swore that he'd take an extended vacation and drive all over the country staying at Bed & Breakfast establishments and play golf at all the great courses. An under-achiever at the table said he'd get a new set of tires for his car. What a loser.
I've been working on a draft proposal for the Prez - "W" I know I've been a harsh critic of most of your policies, but you can wipe the slate clean with a flick of the pen. We agree whole heartedly with the government's decision to forgive the bank's debts but only if you forgive ours too.

  1. That is a great idea. I would be happy to see you buy the T5 when that happens (and the porsche). Great blog by the way. Send me an email when you get a chance. - Ryan (check profile)
