Food for Thought

With election day fast approaching, I thought this was a great, albeit simple, explanation of Obama's tax plan.

Perfect! I saw that emailed to me a few days ago. And I realized something tonight as we watched "Kitchen Nightmares" (I heart Gordon Ramsey).

The employees were all eating the food from the fridge and taking it home, and got mad when they were accused of stealing. Nobody understood that the restaurant, in order to be successful and continue to employ them, has to make money and they can't be eating the food, or not caring about the quality (the executive chef was making powdered mashed potatoes).

And that's JUST like what's happening now: nobody seems to understand that SOMEONE pays for the benefits they receive and they don't realize that SOMEone is paying for them. And they all want to be able to access the riches of others without working for them. It was a perfect metaphor for what's happening to the US.

Powdered mashed potatoes, Annie.
