>Dear President Obama,

Thank you for helping my neighbors with their mortgage payments. They are the ones who live just down the street from me.

You know which ones I mean. They’re just like a lot of the other folks all across America… that you and your Congress have decided to help out… so they won’t have to suffer too much during this economic crisis we’re all in. They’re the same ones who, not all that long ago, refinanced the mortgage on their house a couple of times… so they could buy new SUV’s, a bigger boat, two new Wave Runners, an RV, new big screen HDTV’s, new X-Box’s and PlayStations for their kids, new flooring for their home, enlarged their back patio (including adding a new swimming pool), and most recently… got a new Harley-Davidson.

I don’t want you to think I’m complaining… but, I was just wondering… since I am still paying MY mortgage…. and now their’s as well… could you arrange for me to at least be able to borrow their Harley every now and then? I’ve wanted one for years… but, never thought I could afford it… and, I didn’t want to put myself into a negative financial position by going out and buying something that I might not really, really need.

P.S. They also need help with their credit cards now. So, when do you want me to start making those payments for them as well?

P.P.S. I almost forgot. They didn’t file their income tax returns for the past several years either. Should I go ahead and file for them… or will you take care of that yourself… by appointing them to Cabinet posts?
