Lexapro Prescribed for Depression



Maxine's point of view based on
her astute observations.




Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."
Nearly 75 years ago, (when welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land."

Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, et cetera, ... I called a suicide hotline.

I had to press 1 for English. I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck. Folks, we're screwed.
The famous ... maybe even infamous ... and beloved cartoon character was brought to life by cartoonist John Wagner  more than a quarter century ago.
