Dear Julia…from grumpy old people.

(Grumpy Old People) This is written on behalf of grumpy old people…like me, and maybe you!…to Julia Gillard.

Dear Julia, Please find below my suggestion for fixing our economy. You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

Part 1. There are about 350,000 people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

  1. They MUST retire. 350,000 jobs vacant – unemployment fixed
  2. They MUST buy a new Australian car. 350,000 cars ordered – Car Industry fixed
  3. They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed
  4. They MUST buy $100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week ….. and there’s your money back in duty/tax etc
  5. Instead of stuffing around with the carbon emissions trading scheme that makes us pay for the major polluters, tell the greedy bastards to reduce their pollution emissions by 75% within 5 years or we shut them down.

It can’t get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know. If not, please disregard.
