    Default Patriotic Retirement Act

    Lets say there are about 40 million people over the age of 50 in the work force.

    Offer each $1 million severance with the following stipulations:

    A) They MUST retire. This creates 40 million job openings. Unemployment fixed.

    B) They MUST buy a new American built car. Forty million cars ordered. Auto Industry infused.

    C) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their existing mortgage. Housing Crisis fixed.

    Costs much less than the Billions we are spending on the Banks and Auto Industries. Moreover, no more parties and trips by Execs. with our tax money.

    What say the masses.......

    40 million x 1 million = 40 trillion, which is way more than the billions we're spending on the banks/autos/etc.
    There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.

    I can just see 40 million baby boomers with time on their hands and a new automobile or two ("Honey, which car shall we take this weekend?"). Mother earth can take a lot, but this might be too much. Plus, as the Republicans might say, where are you going to get all this money?

    Would that be 40 times more expensive than the Iraq War?......

    Just wondering.
    Your ignorance is painful to witness.....

    Boy oh boy, those already retired will surely be PO'd.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
