Dear “my” Federal Government:

I don’t even know who to address to.  President Obama?  My senators and congressmen?  The secretary of the treasury (Timothy Franz Geithner), Uncle Sam?

Since I don’t know, I am putting my request in the best place I can think of – the internet.

We see on the news every day how large corporations are crying poor and how they’re laying off tens of thousands of workers every day.  We see them begging for help from the government and the government is hading out BILLIONS of dollars to these people.  We also see how the executives for most of these companies take these billions and selfishly stash it away in their banks, they sill go ahead with the layoffs, cutbacks, and outsourcing thus making our economy worse.

I am putting in my official request -

I am requesting $5 million US dollars ($5,000,000) to help me and my family with a stimulous package of our own.  First of all, this is less than 1/10 of a percent of the smallest “bailouts’ that our government has given so it sould be looked at as not even a small drop in the bucket.  What’s 5 million when you’re throwing around billions and trillions?

Why should I get it?  We would do our best to pump this money back into the economy, directly. We would:

  • Pay off our debts (home loans, car loans, student loans, etc…)thus making more money available for bank loans, thus directly helping with the credit crunch.
  • We would invest the money so my wife and I can peruse our own careers and starting our own businesses.  Not only would I be able to quit my full time job, I would be opening up a position that someone who is collecting unemployment would be able to get.  It would create one more job in the economy.
  • With our increase revenue, we could continue our schooling and hire people to help us with our ventures, thus improving our educating, our productivity, and creating new jobs.
  • We would be able to afford to “upgrade” our services (faster internet, cable TV, even long distance on our phone) to send more money to these troubled companies allowing them to possibly hold onto more workers.
  • We would be able to upgrade our existing equipment (computers for work, fuel efficient cars since my wife would be traveling a lot visiting clients), maybe even be able to afford some office space for our ventures, thus improving on the commercial real estate market and helping out the retail and manufacturing sector (we would try to make sure anything we purchased was made in the USA).

As you can see, just from this short list, I would do far more to help the economy than what these large corporation are doing with over 1,000 times the amount I am requesting.

So, now the ball is in “my” government’s court.

Will you take me seriously?  if you do, I’m sure you can find out who I am and call me on my cell phone.  Don’t worry if I don’t answer – we have creditors calling us and I don’t answer the phone unless I know who it is.  Please leave a message with legitimate contact information.

Please do not ask me to travel anywhere, unless you pay for the tickets (you can take it out of my $5 million when I get it).  As things are extremely tight with my family, we cannot afford any travel at this time since my wife hasn’t had a job since June of 2008 and my company is laying off people in the thousands.  As you can see, I’ve even fouled this site with AdSense to attempt to hope to pay for some bills (and other living expenses).

If you don’t care about me, ignore this please.  This will be a sign to over 300,000,000 American citizens who are sufering in this economy while theelite few squander every penny they can so they can afford caviar for breakfast before flying in their private jets to some foreign vacation spot.
