“Why I’m Depressed”

As you could have guessed, NaBloPoMo is pretty much a bust for me again this year, but that’s okay. I’m (sort of) back into the blogging mode (even if I’m not doing it obsessively.

I got the following in email today with the subject line “Why I’m Depressed” from a co-worker. This is one of those marvelously politically-incorrect things that I enjoy. I did get a good chuckle of out it, and thought I’d share it. My usual disclaimer applies (which is: if you are one of those hyper-sensitive types with the political-correctness fetish, piss off!)

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, Obama 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., called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English. I was then connected to a call center in Pakistan . I told them I was suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck.
