More Random Letters

Dear Mr. Sandman,

Dude. It's the big, white farmhouse with the chickens and 2 ducks. And 2 rabbits. You seem to be hitting my husband, but missing me and the child. If you were up for review, it wouldn't be a good one. Can we work on our aim?? This not sleeping past 5 AM thing has got to stop!

Sincerely,
Fog Brain


Dear Mr. President,

Will YOUR family be using your new health care bill? That's what I thought.

Dear U.S. Government,

Thank you oh so much for spending my tax dollars on (1) a letter telling me I will be getting a Census and that I must fill it out, and (2) sending me a postcard after the fact to remind me to fill it out.

You also really need to work on your grammar. Especially verb tenses. Just a hint: when you are asking a question that will be taking place in the future, you should use words like "going to", not "were." For example, when you asked me on March 17, 2010 how many people WERE living in my home on April 1, 2010...well...I guess I understand the literacy rate in this country now.

By the way, did you know that the first Census in 1790 cost 1.1 cents per capita? The cost in 2000 per capita? $23.09. Great job. In 2000, you spent $167 MILLION on advertising. What's the total for this one??

Sincerely,
Count Me OUT


Dear MG:

You are starting to tick me off. Why are you acting up so much lately? Stop rearing your ugly monster head and go into remission or something for crying out loud. If you were a person I'd punch you in the face. You're messing up my life and I hate you.

Sincerely,
Me

I didn't see the Census. That's sadly funny about the grammar. With all the advertising, I thought the Census would be a bigger deal than it was.

I am so glad that I am not the only one with a chronic illness that hates the bill that was passed.

I LOVE these letters! I agree with Margaret, I'm SO glad to know there are others with chronic illnesses who also HATE this ridiculous healthcare bill that was just passed. I saw the following on someone's FaceBook today and I thought it was funny but sadly true:

"Let me get this straight. We just passed a healthcare plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president who also hasn't read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that's broke. What could possibly go wrong?"

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I hope you will be back to visit sometime really soon!

Have a wonderful week!

Blessings,

Teresa <><
