FWD; FWD; FWD;

I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.

 
 

Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in

 
 

a We Deserve It Dividend.

 
 
 

To make the math simple, lets assume there are 200,000,000

 

bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+.

 
 
 

Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman

 

and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up..

 

So divide 200 million adults 18+  into $85 billion that equals $425,000.00.

 
 
 

My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a

 

We Deserve It Dividend.

 
 
 

Of course, it would NOT be tax free.

 

So lets assume a tax rate of 30%.

 
 
 

Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes.

 

That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.

 
 
 

But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.

 

A husband and wife has $595,000.00.

 
 
 

What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

 

Pay off your mortgage  housing crisis solved.

 

Repay college loans, what a great boost to new grads

 

Put away money for college  it'll be there

 

Save in a bank  create money to loan to entrepreneurs.

 

Buy a new car  create jobs

 

Invest in the market  capital drives growth

 

Pay for your parents medical insurance  health care improves

 

Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean  or else

 
 
 

Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+  including the folks

 

who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company

 

that is cutting back. And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.

 
 
 

If were going to re-distribute wealth lets really do it...instead of trickling out

 

a puny $1000.00 ( vote buy ) economic incentive.

 
 
 

If were going to do an $85 billion bailout, lets bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!

 
 
 

As for AIG  liquidate it.

 

Sell off its parts

 

Let American General go back to being American General.

 

Sell off the real estate.

 

Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

 
 
 

Here's my rationale. We deserve it and AIG does'nt.

 
 
 

Sure its a crazy idea that can never work.

 
 
 

But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party!

 
 
 

How do you spell Economic Boom?

 
 
 

I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion

 

We Deserve It Dividend more than I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC .

 
 
 

And remember, The Family plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned

 

instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.

 
 
 

Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

 
                                                                       
 
PS:  Feel free to pass this along to your pals as its either good for a laugh or a tear or a very sobering thought on how to best use $85 Billion! !

But I bet he knows enough to shake rather than wasting $20 on cleaning up after #1.

You should have seen how bad it was before the minimal fixing I did to it.

I found it humorous at least.

I'd buy a small country, amass an army through Dogma and good pay...and subsequently take over the planet.

I'd be happy living a quiet life in a sailboat (probably a 45 footer, no yachts) sailing the oceans.

I'd quit my job and do nothing the rest of my life.

I'd give to a charity or something, but then it would be public knowledge of how much money I have.  I wouldn't want that burden. 

So I would live for free, because I'm selfish.
