One way to fix the economy…

Good morning, Netizens...

As David Horsey's political cartoon opines this morning, we have some alternatives when it comes to our national economy falling into the toilet tank. Despite the fact that the sale of alcoholic beverages dropped recently, fear not O gentle spirits!

For you can still do your part to save this vital part of our national economy and help yourselves survive the doldrums of being perpetually dismayed, if not nearly broke by buying more booze. Given the grim statistics being handed out by various pointy-headed statisticians, it might prove to be more entertaining than watching reruns of Captain Kangaroo in slow-motion on the VCR.

Of course on the down side, such behavior might ruin your marriage if you have one, put you over the edge into foreclosure, cause you to wreck the Bentley, cause sexual dysfunction or otherwise neatly rearrange your priorities.

Hey, but look at it this way – you will have helped save an important part of the national economy while vaguely reassuring yourselves that everything is fine, no problems and life is good. Do your patriotic duty.
