How about this  plan.

 
   
   
I’m against the  $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.
 
Instead, I’m in favor of  giving $85,000,000,000 to  
America  in
a ‘We Deserve It Dividend’.  
 
To make the math simple,  let’s assume there are 200,000,000
bonafide  
U.S.  Citizens 18+.

Our population is about  301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman  
and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair  stab at adults 18 and up..  
 
So divide 200 million adults  18+  into $85 billon that equals $425,000.00.  
 
My plan is to give $425,000  to every person 18+ as a ‘We Deserve It Dividend’..  
 
Of course, it would NOT be  tax free.
So let’s assume a tax rate  of 30%.
 
Every individual 18+ has to  pay $127,500.00 in taxes.  
That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to  Uncle Sam.
 
But it means that every  adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.  
A husband and wife has $595,000.00.  
 
What would you do with  $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?  
Pay off your mortgage –  housing  crisis solved.  
Repay college loans – what a great boost to  new grads
Put away money for college –  it’ll be there
Save in a bank – create  money to loan to entrepreneurs.  
Buy a new car – create jobs  
Invest in the market – capital drives growth  
Pay for your parent’s medical insurance –  health care improves
Enable Deadbeat Dads to come  clean – or else
 
Remember this is for every  adult U S Citizen 18+  including the folks  
who lost their jobs at  Lehman  Brothers and every other company  
that is cutting back. Of course, it will  really help this serving in our Armed Forces!
If we’re going to do an $85  billion bailout, let’s bail out every adult U S Citizen  18+.

As for AIG – liquidate it.  
Sell off its parts.  
Let American General go back to being  American General.
Sell off the real estate  
Let the private sector  bargain  hunters cut it up and clean it up.  
 
Here’s my rationale. We  deserve it and AIG doesn’t.  
 
Sure it’s a crazy idea that  can “never work.”
 
But can you imagine the  Coast-To-Coast Block Party!  
 
How do you spell Economic  Boom?
 
I trust my fellow adult  Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion  
We Deserve It Dividend more  than I do the geniuses at AIG or in  
Washington  DC .  

And remember, The  Davis
 plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned  
instantly in taxes to Uncle  Sam.
 
Ahhh…I feel so much better  getting that off my chest.  

 

A BIG BIG THANK YOU TO CLEAR BLUE RETREAT ON SOUTH MAIN STREET FOR BRINGING YOU TODAY’S BLOG….MAKE SURE TO STOP IN AND THANK THEM FOR SPONSORING US.

1.  wow, the last day of september and our beautiful weather will continue.  nighttime lows get kind of cool, but daytime highs in the 70’s sure work.  hopefully this weather will continue thru february, then let it snow all it wants in march and melt in april….YEAH, RIGHT….

2.  the biggest game of the twins season is tonight…the white sox beat detroit last night, and will have to host the minnesota twins tonight for the right to go to the playoffs.  whoever wins tonight gets in, whoever loses goes home….c’mon twins, show us the magic one more time.

3.  my brother and i used to go outside and split paint cans with an ax.  the colors were pretty as they covered the ground and covered us, but the consequences were not always good.

4.  isn’t it funny how the value of trading cards has skyrocketed in the past decade?  my brother troy and i had boxes and boxes and boxes of trading cards from football, baseball, basketball, and tv shows.  we came home one day from school in britton, and mom had thrown all of them out.  we recently told mom that she probably threw away our retirement…ha ha

5.  how many of you DIDN’T have the farrah fawcett “swimsuit” poster in your bedroom back in the 70’s. i saw one recently and almost picked it up again…however, i’m thinking my beautiful wife jeannie wouldn’t see the humor of having that hanging in our room.

6.  have you seen the economic savior plan that someone came up with?  it’s going all over the internet recently and it makes way too much sense for congress to even consider.  i’ll have it as a separate post coming up soon.

7.  a man was arrested over the weekend at dodger stadium for posing as one of the players on the dodgers team.  officials became suspicious when the man got a hit with players in scoring position.

8.  scarlett johnansson married actor ryan reynolds over the weekend….cross another one off of the “jay dean available list.”  just kidding honey…

9.  the “howdy doody” show last aired on this date in 1960.  howdy then moved to aberdeen, south dakota and changed his name to scott solberg. (gotcha)

10.  remember when “up with people” used to tour the area?  it was so sweet and sugary that it sent audience members into diabetic comas.

THAT’S IT FOR NOW…HAPPY TUESDAY…

THANKS TO CLEAR BLUE RETREAT POOLS AND SPAS IN ABERDEEN FOR SPONSORING OUR DAILY BLOG.  FOLKS, IF YOU WANT A HOT TUB, WHY NOT GO TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN HERE FOR YEARS, AND WILL BE HERE FOR MANY MORE YEARS…..see them on south main in aberdeen.

1.  HOW ABOUT THOSE REDSKINS….everybody thought i was an idiot for thinking the redskins could beat the “mighty cowboys.”  well, we did it, and we did it in quality fashion.  my skins looked great yesterday in dismantling the cowboys.  terrell owens of the cowboys makes me absolutely sick with his antics on the field including scoring a touchdown and then getting up on the bench and asking people to applaud for him.  shut up and play the game, moron.

2.  HOW ABOUT THOSE TWINS…the twins have had ample chances to clinch the american league central race…now they have to watch the white sox play detroit today in chicago.  if the white sox win, the twins have to go to chicago for a playoff game tomorrow. if the white sox lose today, the twins get to advance to the playoffs.  GO DETROIT TIGERS…by the way, the twins have won the season series with the white sox 10-8, so why the heck do they have to go to chicago for their game?  apparently it was a ‘coin flip.’  but, i think that flip should be obsolete if the twins have beat the white sox 10-8 during the season.

3.  on a serious note, we had a bad accident near warner saturday night.  it’s a horrible sound to be brought out of bed with all the sirens going off.  it’s even worse to see a fire truck, rescue truck, two ambulances, some cop cars and careflight landing outside of town.  our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of the young man killed saturday night.  i hope that God cradles you in his arms and comforts you thru this horrible time.

4.  i had the priveledge of doing a baptism yesterday at church in hecla for the smiliest baby i’ve ever seen in my life.  with all the troubles in the world today, it’s so nice to have a happy pure moment like that.

5.  jeannie and i went to see “righteous kill” saturday night starring al pacino and robert deniro.  it was a pretty good movie.  they have pretty good chemistry together and the movie had a very good story.  i recommend this one.

6.  i watched a good share of saturday night live the other night.  the show seems to be really losing it’s zip.  i wonder if the end is coming…..

7.  JOKE OF THE DAY…the only cow in a small arkansas town quit giving milk, so the people did some research and found out that they could get another cow up in lafayette, indiana for two hundred dollars.  they bought the cow in indiana and brought it home to arkansas, and the cow was amazing…producing lots and lots of milk and pleasing the town people.  in fact, they were so happy that they decided to buy a bull to mate with the cow to produce more great cows like the one they had.  but everytime the bull came close to the cow, the cow would move away.  if the bull came up from the side, the cow would move to the other side. if the bull came from the front, the cow would back up.  the bull never touched the cow.  so the townspeople decided to take the cow to the vet to see what was wrong.  the vet watched the cow shy away from the bull every time the bull got close.  then the vet asked the people, “did you happen to buy this cow in indiana?”  the townspeople couldn’t beleive that he knew that and they said “why yes we did, but how would you know that?”  the vet replied, “because my wife is from indiana………ha ha

8.  movie legend paul newman died this weekend…what a truly fantastic actor, and he and his wife joanne woodward were married for FIFTY YEARS…you just don’t see that in hollywood, folks…..

9.  washington mutual became the lastest financial collapse the other day…what’s the new scariest halloween costume for this year?  a bank manager.

10.  a new survey says that 45 percent of those polled say that the wife runs the house…GEE NO KIDDING….i thought the number would be higher.  the other 55 percent of men polled were scared to death to say either way.

HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE…

CLEAR BLUE RETREAT IS PROUD TO BRING YOU MY DAILY BLOG. AND WE’RE SUPER PROUD TO HAVE THEM.  GET THE POOL OR HOT TUB OF YOUR DREAMS AT CLEAR BLUE RETREAT, SOUTH MAIN IN ABERDEEN.

1.  here’s my tip of the day…listen to my football picks on the radio and do the opposite.  solberg is kicking my butt by 12 games after only three weeks….i suck…..

2.  i was told yesterday that a rich guy, possibly warren buffett was on tv the other day talking about the “bailout” that congress is proposing.  he said that if the government gave every HOUSEHOLD in american one million dollars, everyone would be out of debt, the economy would become completely stabilized, and the country’s debt will be gone.  wouldn’t that be great?  BUT NO….why help out common citizens when we can put millions of dollars into chief executives of big companies?

3.  speaking of that, i’ve always thought that these poweball and other drawings should break up the money.  instead of giving 200 million to one person, give one million to 200 different people……..

4.  wasn’t the carol burnett show one of the best shows ever on television?  tim conway and harvey were INCREDIBLE together.  i caught their show at the fargodome a couple of years back, and i about died laughing.  they even did the ‘dentist’ skit from the show.

5.  HOW ABOUT THOSE TWINS?  the minnesota twins NEEDED to win their three game series with the white sox, and that’s exactly what they did!!!  and what a thriller last night…..the twins acted like they actually WON THE PENNANT after the game.  the twins now control their own destiny…if they sweep kansas city tonight thru sunday, they will be in the playoffs.

6.  in college football, number one usc lost to oregon state last night…YAY!!!  if notre dame loses this weekend, and all florida colleges lose, it will be a perfect college weekend for me.

7.  i’ve been reminiscing about when my kids were small. when tyler was three, he followed me into the bathroom because i had the flu and was about to upchuck.  i was on my knees doing the job, tyler started gagging because i was doing it, and boom, he was on his knees worshipping the porcelain god just like dad…and he didn’t even have the flu…it was hilarious.

8.  our general manager’s wife once dropped tyler into a snowbank when he was a baby…true story….he didn’t get hurt or anything, but it sure made for a good laugh.

9.  in your news from the weird, a baltimore man is suing his area hospital claiming that when they removed his rectal tumor, they sewed his butt shut…..a judge has stated that the man is full of crap.

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY…two young men were looking at a sears catalogue and admiring the models.  barney said to slim, “have you seen the beautiful girls in this catalogue?”  slim replied “yes, they are very beautiful, and look at their prices!!”  barney said with wide open eyes, “wow, they aren’t very expensive, at this price i’m buying one.”  slim smiles and pats him on the back and says “good idea, order one and if she’s as beautiful as she is in the catalogue i will get one too!!”    three weeks later, slim asks his friend barney if he ever recieved his girl from the sears catalogue….barney replied, “no, but it shouldn’t be long now…because i got her clothes yesterday!!!”

HAPPY FRIDAY AND ENJOY YOUR BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND…

CLEAR BLUE RETREAT POOLS AND SPAS ARE THE SPONSOR OF MY DAILY BLOG…NEED A HOTTUB? WANNA BUY ME A HOTTUB?  STOP BY AND SEE THEM ON SOUTH MAIN STREET IN ABERDEEN.

1.  i’ve been wondering lately….did people back in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s trust politicians?  or were they different back then?

2.  last night i spent the night at st. john’s in hecla for youth group, with my good friend the reverend ryan mutzenberger.  ryan’s the pastor at the methodist churches in claremont and hecla.  ryan and i both love teaching the children, i just wish that i was as knowledgeable as him.  he sure knows his stuff and is an inspiration to me.

3.  by the way, i told the kids last night that back in the biblical days the men were called “hebrews” and the women were called “shebrews.”  i could be mistaken though.

4.  i thought i was in a slow motion nascar race yesterday on sixth avenue.  there was a car in front of me, and every time i pulled in the left lane to pass him, he would pull in the left lane, too.  then when i would go back in the right lane, he’d do the same.  when i finally got by him, i found out it was a smart a*$ young kid who was laughing his butt off.  it wouldn’t be so funny if he had caused an accident.

5.  viking great wally hilgenberg died at age 66 this week….my brother troy and i had like three complete sets of vikings cards back from those days.  names like fred cox, bobby bryant, paul krause, roy winston, mick tinglehoff, chuck foreman, ron yary, carl eller, and my personal favorite fran tarkenton.  man, those were the days with a great great vikings team.

6.  p.e.t.a. is trying to convince ben and jerry to start making ice cream with women’s breast milk…….now i’m certain that the end of the world is near.  my question is this…would you serve this ice cream in cups?

7.  magician david blaine completed his latest stunt of hanging upside down over central park for 60 hours…..this guy hung around longer than the new york yankees.

8.  my fantasy football team sucks……i thought for sure that i had a superb lineup with brown’s quarterback derek anderson, wide reciever bernard berrian of the vikings, and running back thomas jones of the jets.  they all suck this year, thusly causing my team to suck.  currently i have my entire roster on the trading block after week number three.

9.  singer clay aiken has announced that he is gay….who gives a crap….i’m here to announce to all of you that i’m straight and happily married.  more of us need to announce that in public, so we can take away from those idiots that seem to think that we care about their sexual preference.

10.  president jimmy carter’s brother BILLY CARTER died on this day back in 1988.  he was only 51…you talk about a family member handicapping the white house…ha ha…billy put his name on a product called “billy beer” which flopped and i heard was horrible.  i don’t know if he still has it or not, but my dad used to have a six pack of billy beer that he saved.  dad also has a six pack of m*a*s*h beer.

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW, HAPPY THURSDAY

A BIG BIG THANK YOU TO CLEAR BLUE RETREAT ON SOUTH MAIN STREET FOR SPONSORING MY DAILY BLOG…MAKE SURE TO STOP IN AND TELL THEM THANK YOU…..

1.  how about those twins?  the twins ripped apart the white sox 9-3 last night to get the white sox lead down to a game and a half with five to go….c’mon twins…they have to win tonight and tomorrow night…..listen to the game on our sister station ksdn am 930.

2.  my son tyler’s homecoming picture with queen kelsey is in the american news today.  it’s on page three of the community section.  also, on page four read about a twin brother and sister combo that won homecoming king and queen in north dakota….how weird would that be?

3.  you can tell it’s getting close to the election in november….people are sure getting “fired up” when you talk politics with them……

4.  this government “bailout” is starting to really tork me off……someone yesterday said that they heard on tv that if we kept that money and gave it to americans it would come out to seven thousand dollars PER PERSON….  talk about stimulating the economy…..we could pay a lot of bills of with 28,000 dollars…..but, that makes WAY TOO MUCH SENSE for our government to figure that out.

5.  i’ve never wanted to smack my tv more than now when i come across campbell brown on cnn…..this woman drives me INSANE with her cocky attitude and smart ass smile when asking questions or making comments.

6.  did you know that when i was a junior in high school at langford i won the “watertown public opinion” football picks for the year.  i recieved like one hundred dollars and had my afro induced picture in the paper….man have times changed…now I SUCK at picking games, as i am 12 games behind solberg already…..

7.  isn’t it funny how guys can get away with having gray hair, but woman cannot?  i’m told that i look “distinguished” with gray hair, but women look “old”….that’s like in college when a man goes out with more than one woman he’s a stud….when a woman does that she’s called a ………..well, you know…….double standards are stupid….

8.  bill clinton said that he can understand the appeal of sarah palin….EASY THERE, BIG FELLA…….TAKE A COLD SHOWER….

9.  german researchers have found out that floral scents lead to pleasant dreams…that must be true, because when i got funerals i’ve never seen anyone wake up.

10.  make sure to go to the homepage of sunny 97-7 and watch the video of josh groban singing a medley of “tv theme songs” at the emmy awards sunday night…it was truly a cool cool song….

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW…HAPPY WEDNESDAY…

WE HAVE A SPONSOR OF THE MORNING BLOG….A HUGE THANKS TO “CLEAR BLUE RETREAT POOLS AND SPAS ON SOUTH MAIN STREET.  MAKE SURE TO STOP AND THANK THEM FOR BRINGING YOU THIS BLOG!!!!!!!!

1.  i went up to oakes last night to do communions at the nursing home for some wonderful folks that i just love.  if you have someone in a nursing home, even if you don’t, please spend some time with the folks there.  they so appreciate visitors.

2.  i had plenty of time to think about memories on the way up and back, so here’s some of the things i was thinking about.  back when i was in high school, my cousins jason, michelle, and brenda, came up from south carolina.  i was older than them, so i was taking them to aberdeen to a movie and supper.  my cousin jason said that all he wanted was for me to hit a skunk so he could find out what they smell like. i informed him that i didn’t want to “intentionally” hit one, because the smell seems to never go away.  he was kind of disappointed.

3.  by the way, do you know how to get skunk smell out of your vehicle?  i hit one when i was in high school at langford, and all i did was buy two musk melons, cut them in half, and place them in my car overnight.  when i got up the next morning the smell was gone.  but the melons tasted like crap…(just kidding, we didn’t eat them.)

4.  one of my good friends in high school used to have a stop sign, yield sign, and town sign hanging in his bed room.  the more i think about it, he’s so darn lucky he didn’t go to prison for having those.

5.  i remember the day that john belushi died.  we were practicing our senior class play in the old gym in langford, and i ran upstairs to get something and came down and told everyone that he had died.  NO ONE BELEIVED ME…then shortly after that, our science room ceiling came crashing in.  THAT WAS COOL…nobody was hurt, thank goodness, but we all went in there and took pictures standing under the crashed ceiling…probably not a good idea.

6.  the best deal ever in college?  five dollar drink and sink.  for five bucks, you could drink all you could drink.  seemed like a good idea back then, but i would probably scream at my kids for doing that. 

7.  strip club business is way way down in new york city….i’m sure the government will bail them out too…maybe not the entire government, but certainly a whole bunch of senators.

8.  jessica simpson says that her boyfriend, tony romo of the dallas cowboys, puts up with a lot of stuff because she likes to fart and burp a lot….but enough about her latest cd…….

9.  your thought for today…think about this…..amateurs built the ark…professionals built the titanic….

10.  “WE’RE GONNA WIN TWINS…”  the twins play the white sox for three games starting tonight at the metrodome…THE TWINS MUST WIN ALL THREE…if they do, they could win the division…it all comes down to this, folks….

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW…THANKS TO CLEAR BLUE RETREAT….
