Fixing the White House Fence

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House.

One is from New Jersey, another is from Kentucky, and the third is from New Orleans.  All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The New Orleans contractor 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 $9,000. That’s $4,000 for materials, $4,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me.”

The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $7,000. That’s $3,000 for materials, $3,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me.”

The JERSEY contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$27,000.”

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

“The New Jersey contractor whispers back, “$10,000 for me, $10,000 for you, and we hire the guy from Kentucky to fix the fence.”

“Done!” replies the government official.

And that, my friends, is how the Government Stimulus plan worked.

Remember… Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box and the cartridge box.

“I love my country; it’s the government I’m afraid of!”

    The president mimed masturbation at a protester at his rally last night.

    Before the rally, a supporter mimed shooting at a reporter covering the event. Two acts of violence also broke out, both started by Trump supporters shoving protesters.

    We can’t take much more of this.

    Fools. Why do you think McConnell is returned to the Senate, lo, these many terms?

    Put up a freshman Senator from Kentucky??? … and the spigot shuts right off.

    So, as to the general concept, your not-so-comic scenario is dead on. What makes you fools, is that great big blind spot about who gets rich.

    Speaking of fixing things–

    Tick tock.

    “Now, Solomon is reporting that an audiotape containing professor Joseph Mifsud’s deposition has been given to both U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigators and to the Senate Judiciary Committee.”
