$800 BILLION! - Funny Suggestion - September 25, 2008, 11:07 AM

My boss just sent this to me... Its actually pretty clever. We can all go and get brand new bikes!

I LOVE THIS PROPOSAL !!

I’m against the $800,000,000,000.00 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, let’s assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide adults in the U.S.

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 billon 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 let’s 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 parent’s 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 we’re going to re-distribute wealth let’s really do it...instead of trickling out a puny $1000.00 ( “vote buy” ) economic incentive.

If we’re going to do an $85 billion bailout, let’s bail out every adult US 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 doesn’t.

Sure it’s 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 Birk 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.

I think my father, who has a PhD in Math from UVa, is turning in his grave.

85 billion divided by 200 million -- uh, isn't that $425?

:fail:



I think 3 pages.

Edit - I still wouldn't mind an extra $425. I could by a new G26, maybe some new heated gear for riding this fall & winter. Aw hell, I could get some good brownie points and take Sara out for a really nice dinner somewhere!

I don't know how much a Billon is but apparently it's a good deal more than a Billion.

Sad part is that the banks WILL be bailed out for their foolish investment, but borrowers won't be bailed out for their foolish investment... and trust me, the banks aren't bailing anyone out.

I just read an article about CountryWide lending out money, promising refi's after the terms of the interest only, and then uping the requirements for loans later, leaving the borrower with no options but another interest only at worse rates or forclosure.

Scratch convicted felons, people in jail for murder/rape/equiv., and habitual offenders.

Sounds like a decent economy boost.
