boortz fairtax signing
from Neal Boortz:
"AND NOW SHE HAS NOTHING ...."
Yes .. the situation on the Gulf coast is terrible. It is beyond imagination for most of us. But let's not forget where we live [!!!we're so very lucky!!!]; let's not forget what America is all about. We're not all looters.
This morning I heard a TV anchor discussing the plight of some young woman named Natalie Brown. The anchor said that she fled the hurricane and left her house and her job, and now she has nothing.
First .. the obvious. She still has her health, her friends, her family, her education, her ambition, her car and her boyfriend. In fact, she's staying with her parents! Her bank accounts are still safe. The money is still there.
This means she "has nothing?"
Natalie Brown lives in America. She has now made the decision to relocate away from New Orleans. That she can do with relative ease. She lives in a country with a vibrant and growing economy; a country where hard work and good decision making will be rewarded. She gets to relocate and seek another job in a country that has embraced the one economic system that has lifted more people out of poverty than any other economic system in the history of civilization. She left a home she rented behind in New Orleans ... and is going to plant roots elsewhere in the greatest country in the world.
And she "has nothing?"
Tens of millions of people around the world would trade places with Natalie Brown right now. Today. Hurricane and all. Tell them that she has nothing.

manipulative appeals to idiots - brilliant!
"Simply put, eliminating the Estate Tax forces working Americans and our children to pick up a trillion dollar tab that used to be paid by the wealthy. President Bush and his allies in Congress are telling us it is more important for them to protect Paris Hilton's inheritance than to protect us."

Abed: "No. For example, my name is Ramzi, right? They call me Abu Shema',
after my daughter."
