Back in February of this year, shortly after Obama was sworn as President, he made an astute observation: “We are in the middle of an economic crisis!”
Damn, that was brilliant. What was his solution? He’s still looking.
However, here’s a suggestion Mr. Obama: ask all your rich Hollywood type friends and other dignitaries you have in your hip pocket to put up their art, precious metals and antique collections for public auction. You might significantly reduce the present deficit.
According to the New York Times, (02/25/09) an auction of the art work of Yves St. Laurent and his lover, Pierre Berge grossed .7 million from the sale of 18 works.
I wonder if any of the proceeds were donated to the poor, or those in need of immediate health care, or other less fortunate Americans
Get creative Mr. Obama………start by tapping into the pockets of your closest friends and leave those of us in the middle class alone.
That’s What I Think!
