I’m Biting The Bullet

The President has ordered the cabinet to cut $100,000,000.00 ($100 million) from the $3,500,000,000,000.00 ($3.5 trillion) federal budget.

I’m so impressed by this sacrifice I have decided to do the same with my personal budget.  I spend about $2,000 a month on groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it’s time to get out the budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and cut back.

I’m going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio.

After doing the math that means 1/35,000 of my total budget will simply have to go.  So it looks like instead of spending $2,000 a month; I’m going to have to cut that number way back  to a mere $1999.94.

Yes, I’m going to have to get by with a whopping SIX CENTS less, but that’s what sacrifice is all about!

I’ll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries – six cents worth.

Did this President actually think no one would do the math?

Please post, share or send this to everyone on your friend list so people understand how idiotic a $100 million cut is in a $3,500,000,000,000.00 budget.

Not just ridiculous… LUDICROUS!
