Pick up your shovelBy Randell Tiongson on September 13th, 2011
I got this from my friend Raffy Pekson …
5000 years ago, Moses said to Israel, “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.” When Welfare was introduced, the government said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land.” Today, the government has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land to China!
So funny, but oh so true. With everything that is going on and the way the ‘new normal’ operates, it’s time to pick up our shovels and work our land.
