The true cause of the economic downturn has now become apparent during the Obama Presidencies new experiment with using the Internet to directly access the American public's opinion. When asked what needed to be down to solve the nations financial problems, four out of seven e-mails wanted the growing and selling of marijuana legalized to get the economy going to which President Obama gave a definite "No!".
This exposes the real cause of the bad economy- slacker potheads. It isn't weasel CEO's or greedy execs getting million dollar bonuses that brought it to a grinding halt, its losers getting so high that they don't even know that there is still a reality disintegrating below them. How can any economy get anywhere when so many members are dragging their heels because they are hallucinating about having an affair with Paris Hilton and imagining that computer games represent the real world?
We should take all the slackers, lock them in a room with only Cheetoes and Arizona tea to eat until they go cold turkey, then stick them in dead end jobs until the economy comes around again. Of course, by the time it does the job will have driven them back to drugs. Maybe its better if we all just get high until the problem either goes away or we die.
