$700,000,000,000 Idea

Since congress didn't buy that bailout plan, here's a back-up idea to run by you:

I think we could mobilize the youth of our country to sell $700,000,000,000 worth of cookies, popcorn and giftwrap, door-to-door.

Just a quick thought.

We men like to fix things, you know.

Hmmm. I think you just gave me an idea for a blog subject.

Anyway, I'm with you on the fundraiser idea. It seems to me that the government looks at a problem and then asks, "What's the most bizarre, complicated way we can come up to address this issue so that no one can really tell whether it's working or not?"

Now THAT is a good idea.

One of my favorite quotes: It will be a great day when schools get all the money they need and the air force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber.

It's getting to be fall and winter, I think they could sell fruitcake too.

(for real, i sold them my senior year of h.s.)

That's a great idea! Who will bake the cookies?

DidiLyn said...

I suppose we could buy some popcorn...

I like the idea! (Especially since we just did this with our oldest daughter these past two weeks. She's ready to go, having been in training so recently here.)

Don't forget to add the soup mixes and pocket calendars to the selection as well. Those are OUTRAGEOUSLY priced and should help add at least a couple of gazillion dollars to the bailout.
