Why we have a Debt Crisis in America
#1
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in D.C. - one from Texas, another from Tennessee and the third, from Florida. They go with Obama's Fence Czar to examine the fence.

The Florida contractor, Jonathan, takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well", he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

Cletus, the Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

Jose from El Paso, Texas doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the Czar and whispers, "$2,700".

The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

Jose whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."

To which the Fence Czar responds with a big grin and a handshake saying "DEAL!"

And THAT, boys and girls is how it's done in Washington!

Yeah we seem to have very similar views on a lot of things. What's your favorite food off the Grill / Barbie?
