    I got this in an email thought I would share.

    Body of email:

    This is from an article in the St. Petersburg, Times Newspaper on Sunday.
    The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the economy?"

    I think this guy nailed it!

    Dear Mr. President,
    Please find below my suggestion for fixing America's economy. Instead of
    giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on
    lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can
    call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

    There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1
    million apiece severance for early retirement with the following

    1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

    2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered - Auto
    Industry fixed.

    3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing
    Crisis fixed.

    It can't get any easier than that!

    P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress and their
    constituents pay their taxes...
