For my Louisiana Friends....

Postby Bob McCarty » Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:39 pm

From the "Fence Post":
Boudreaux, the smoothest-talking Cajun in the Louisiana National Guard, got called up to active duty. Boudreaux's first assignment was in a military induction center. As he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about government benefits, especially the GI insurance to which they were entitled. The officer in charge soon noticed that Boudreaux was getting a 99% sign-up rate for the more expensive supplemental form of GI insurance. This was remarkable because it cost these low-income recruits $30 per month for the higher coverage, compared to what the government was already providing at no charge. The officer decided he'd sit in the back of the room and listen to Boudreaux's sales pitch. The next morning Boudreaux stood up before the newest group of inductees and said, "If you has da normal GI insurans an' you goes to war an' gets yourself killed, da governmen' pays you benefishery $20,000. If you takes out da suppmental insurans, which cost you only t'irty dollars a munt, den da governmen' gots to pay you benefishery $400,000! "Now", Boudreaux concluded, "which bunch you tink da governmen' gonna send ta war first?"

You don't have to be from Louisiana to appreciate that one.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
