Biting the bullet - cutting expenses. I HOPE YOU WILL PARTICIPATE

The President ordered the cabinet to cut $100 million from the $3.5
trillion federal budget.

I'm so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same
thing with my personal budget. I usually spend about $3000 a month on
gasoline, groceries, household expenses, utilities, etc., but it's
time to get out the budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and
cut back like a true American.

I'm going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio, 1/35,000 of my
total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending
$3000 a month; I'm going to have to cut that number by almost nine
cents. Yes, I'm going to have to get by with $2999.91, but that's what
sacrifice is all about. I'll just have to do without some things, that
are, frankly, luxuries.

(Did the president actually think no one would do the math? Please
send this to everyone on your list so people understand what a load of
crap this is --- as if they didn't already know)
