This just in:

The Senate voted today to extend tax breaks for the wealthy, and at the last minute a provision was added that would not allow tax relief for those making less than $250,000.00 per year. Meanwhile, unemployment figures were released today, and the jobless rate remains at a dismal 16%. To make matters worse, T.O.E.S, The office of economic standards announced today that due to an ever widening gap between the wealthy and the poor the once strong and vibrant backbone of America’s economy known as ‘middle class’ has officially disappeared.

Tonight at eleven: Some ask that since 12 year old children can legally drive, is a Lexus an appropriate gift under the Christmas tree. Also, China demands loan repayment!

We do live in an insane world, Dan. Well stated. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

So much truth in this work of humor Dan. We have been unrepresented and misrepresented by the career politicos we elected to office in government. However, we shall overcome this nightmare and our nation will once again shine as the beacon of freedom and democracy. There are too many Americans aware and now outraged to not see massive changes taking place in Washington and state governments across our land. Never again must we permit our own complacency to bring us to the verge of financial ruin and looking on as our freedoms are dashed with politico's greedy pens. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael
