As I announced on the G. Gordon Liddy program last week in Washington, I’m thinking about changing careers. Yes, I’ve learned some things about economics in the last few months watching President Obama and his Democratic Congress, so I think I’d make a great secretary of the treasury, or at least a financial counselor.
The first thing I learned is that if you want to be secretary of the treasury, cheat on your taxes. The second thing I learned is the way to get out of a financial crisis is to spend and borrow like there’s no tomorrow. We can always print more dollars. It’s worked great in Zimbabwe. At this rate, soon the price of milk will be a wheelbarrow full of money.
In fact, with what I’ve learned from current events, let me provide some of that that same sound advice to people in debt everywhere. Here’s what to do. Take your checkbook and write out the biggest number you can squeeze in that little box with the dollar sign. Nah, you can add more zeros than that. Write smaller! Use the margin – that’s what it’s for! Forget about your balance. If you have checks left, write them! If you don’t, then print more! And those credit card applications they keep sending you in the mail? Fill them out, then max them out! That’s the best way to get out of debt! Go to the mall and call it stimulus! Spend and borrow like there’s no tomorrow.
Obama and his Congress think our money is theirs to play with. Billions of debt turned to trillions to payback their political pals and corrupt allies like ACORN. And when they’ve destroyed our dollar and our economy completely, they want to usher in their New World Order. A global currency and a global government. They’re not even denying it anymore … very much.
But a woman of courage broke the ranks of her cowardly colleagues and took a stand. Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., questioned Secretary Geithner’s move toward global currency. Here’s what she asked in last week’s congressional hearing:
Bachmann: Would you categorically renounce the United States moving away from the dollar and going to a global currency as suggested this morning by China and also by Russia? Mr. Secretary?
I have an idea that will show your support for our nation, our currency and a woman of courage. In a land of tea party revolts, pink slips and red envelopes, I think I have an idea that won’t go unnoticed.
It’s pretty simple, really. Take a dollar bill and put a post-it note on it with the words “SAVE OUR DOLLAR” and send it to Rep. Michelle Bachmann. No kidding. They’re not going to throw away this mail because it “comes from outside of the district.” They’re not going to be upset because you haven’t handwritten a long letter. Instead, the congresswoman will be encouraged to keep up the fight for our dollar, for our sovereignty and for fiscal responsibility.
Send your $1 to:
Rep. Michelle Bachmann
107 Cannon HOB
Washington, DC 20515
Then, take a Monopoly dollar and send it to your congressional representative and your two U.S. senators with a different post-it note: “STOP PLAYING GAMES WITH OUR MONEY.”
I’ve just sent mine. It took five minutes.
I sent one real dollar and three Monopoly dollars. It may seem silly, but one thing’s for sure: if we sit by and do nothing, these dollars will soon all be equal in value.
