    We are in trouble...





    The
    population of this country is 300 million.






    160
    million are retired.



    That leaves 140 million to do the
    work.




    There are 85 million in school.






    Which leaves 55 million to do the work.





    Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government.




    Leaving 20 million to do the work.






    2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with killing Osama Bin-Laden.



    Which leaves 17.2
    million to do the work.




    Take from that total the 15.8
    million people who work for state and city Governments. And that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.





    At any given
    time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.



    Leaving
    1,212,000 to do the work.



    Now, there are 1,211,998 people
    in prisons.





    That leaves just two people to do the
    work.





    You and me.




    And there
    you are,




    Sitting on your ass,






    At your computer, reading jokes....




    Nice. Real nice.
