Comic Relief or Food for Thought.....You Decide

Ok so it's a copy of one of those emails going around on how to fix the economy, & usually I try to just delete them,however this one I did read & found it kind of funny.........it is Really simplistic ( as all these ideas are) but there may be some merit too them,certainly food for thought , if we could ever get those in power to stop feeding at the public trough long enough to try & fix some things for Canadians (& other countries too) ---Cheers !

Dear Mr. Harper, Trudeau, Mulcair
Please find below our suggestion for fixing Canada 's economy.
Instead of giving billions of dollars to corporations that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.
 You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan: 
 There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them 1 million dollars each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire. 
Ten million job openings -unemployment fixed 
2) They MUST buy a new car. 
Ten million cars ordered -Car Industry fixed 
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - 
Housing Crisis fixed 
4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university - 
Crime rate fixed 
5) They MUST buy $50 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .....
And there's your money back in duty/tax etc
It can't get any easier than that!
 P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances
 If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.
How about putting the very elderly pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home..
That way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks. They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.
They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on request.
Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.
Each senior could have a PC, a TV, radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to. The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room and pay $300.00 per week and with little hope of ever getting out.

       .............Something to think about......lol    Cheers !
