Mr. Obama, Here's That Idea You Requested



Hello President-Elect Obama:

I received you voicemail last evening and I'm really sorry I missed your call but rarely do we answer the phone after 9:30 pm. Still, you sounded a little frustrated so I wanted to get right back to you.....

Yes, I know, it can be more than a little annoying when everyone around you is all, "you're the greatest thing since sliced bread" and "this is why we all came to Washington in the first place", but you kind of asked for it. They will probably settle down around your 6 th year of being the President, I would imagine.

Sorry, I digress. So you are looking for one plan to help the economy that would probably be despised by the majority of the American people but would actually work and in the end you become an even bigger hero? And you think I might have one for you? Hmmmm..................

Okay, here's an idea:

1) Deposit $100,000 into the bank account of every taxpayer in the top 5% income level with the caveat that they have one week to spend it all or the money gets taken away. (It can be your way of thanking these individuals and businesses who have supported and funded the whole nation for so long).

2) If all the money is spent on adding more employees to their businesses or bonuses to existing employees or spent as 'angel money' for people with new products/contraptions, you add and additional $100,000 the following week.

I know, brilliant. The money will immediately be spent, new jobs will be created with minimal red tape and the trickle down effect will occur before the end of the month. The economy will be stimulated across the nation, as the top 5%-ers do not have debt to pay off the credit cards and they also know how to blow through money quickly.

The American public will, of course, be outraged at first. (You aren't supposed to even recognize the upper class; we don't even exist! All we are supposed to be good for is being heavy taxed to pay for government programs). The mass media will cry, "UNFAIR!"

But in the end, you'll be the hero as we watch the stock market respond positively to your innovation, and the middle class people gets notified that they get to keep their jobs and some new ideas and innovative get approved and funded.

You are welcome. It's my pleasure to give you unwanted suggestions and thoughts. Yes, I know..you also really like that I do not droll when I'm standing near you. That's my job.

Talk to you later and good luck!

This is the single greatest idea I have ever heard. I am not in that top 5% but I still think it would really help the economy. You are brilliant. I wish that the public figures would actually listen to good, no great, ideas from the public.

Ha, great picture!

I like your idea.

If only elected officials could retain even a thread of common sense once they're on the public payroll.

I'm glad he's finally returning your calls and taking you seriously. I knew he would eventually.

Does wearing those panties help you come up with great ideas like that?

I'm wondering if you have been tapped for a cabinet position yet? Your ideas are MARVELOUS! Plus you could be the Director of Hotness in those panties. :)

Stiletto Mom/Mary Anne: I really DO want that position, so can you and a 1000 of your closest friends forward this post to Obama, D.C, Huffington Post, etc and demand that I get a job on the Obama team!

June: I suggest you just show Ed the pic of the panties (hee hee)!

Are those panties your new contraption? He should then give you the bonus $100k. And please send me a pair with free shipping. Maybe I'll come up with some bright idea.
