I'm cross-posting this from Blogging for Michigan. We're not feeling very charitable toward certain GOP politicians who voted against the auto bailout loans. What these senators fail to remember is that thousands of auto workers moved south when they retired and their pensions are helping red state economies.
We're not happy about their double-standards either. They have one set of rules for the white collar banking industry and their CEO's and another for the blue-collar auto workers and their executives.
Anyway, I don't know where this originated, but my friend in South Carolina e-mailed it to me. Her husband retired from one of the Big 3 auto companies and they moved south for health reasons.
From the Desk of Santa
An important letter from Santa Claus to all children:
In preparing your letter to Santa, you must submit a 100-page turnaround plan documenting how you expect to be good.
If approved by the Grinch from Alabama, you will receive half your presents at Christmas and the batteries to run them in March.
Note that all end-of-year allowances must be forfeited, and current parents must be dumped, even though previous parents may be responsible for your bad behavior.
An appointed czar, who once read a blog on child-rearing, will make your life decisions for you.
Bicycles are not allowed; more expensive hybrid tricycles will be substituted, whether you fit one, or not.
If you do not comply with your plan to be good, you and all the people you know will have their homes foreclosed, and you will be replaced by a child from Asia, who gets to keep your toys and send your allowance back to his or her home country.
Kids from Wall Street are exempt from all of the above.
