The economy is so bad that . . . .

1. I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

2. I ordered a burger at McDonald's and the kid behind the counter asked, "Can you afford fries with that?"

3. CEO's are now playing miniature golf.

4. If the bank returns your check marked "Insufficient Funds," you call them and ask if they meant you or them.

5. Hot Wheels and Matchbox stocks are trading higher than GM.

6. McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

7. Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children's names.

8. A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico ..

9. Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting.

10. Motel Six won't leave the light on anymore.

11. The Mafia is laying off judges.

12. Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

13. Congress says they are looking into this Bernard Madoff scandal. Oh, Great!! The guy who made $50 Billion disappear is being investigated by the people who made $1.5 Trillion disappear!

14. I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Lifeline. I got a call center in Pakistan , and when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.

That all depends on if you believe President Obama, or if you believe your own wallet.

If you believe Obama then everything is just fine.
If you believe your own wallet then you know EXACTLY what I mean.
You see it when you pay your bills, buy your groceries, buy your clothes, buy your gas, and pay your taxes. It’s as if the whole world has gone mad and nobody is listening to the little man say, "but what about me"!
Oh wait; though that is what Obama promised. “You who are too ignorant too govern yourselves and too mired in your own religion, I shall lead you into the Promised Land”!

So do you believe the president or your own wallet?
