Drunken Sailor

Posted by Jolly on August 7, 2011

With the downgrade of the US credit rating thanks to our drunken sailor like spending habits, this kind of hits home:

A recent letter to the Editor to the Northern Wyoming Daily News in Worland, Wyoming had this to say:
To the Edtor:

"I object and take exception to everyone saying that Obama and Congress are spending like a drunken sailor.  As a former drunken sailor, I quit when I was out of money!"

"If the US Government was a family,  they would be making $58,000 a year, they would be spending $75,000 a year and are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year."

Dave Ramsey

(These are the actual proportions of the federal budget and debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.)

 

And while you're out drinking and spending, make sure you have this very cool beer thermos.  I just purchased one at Oshkosh, and it keeps your beer ice cold for over an hour.  The guy making the pitch with the boom mike was putting the full court press on me to buy a beer cooler, I told him "you had me at cold beer!"

Drunken Sailor -- I resemble that remark.

Bruce didn't mention the ever popular/effective technique of prolonging liberty by attaching oneself to an affectionate admirer of Drunken Sailors; one that enjoys spending their money on them.

This may not work for the country, but it sure does work for the Drunken Sailor.
