There was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine. And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh’s house. And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, “Give us bread: for why should we die in they presence? For the money faileth.”
And Joseph said, “Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.” And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.
When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, “We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands: wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.” And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh’s.
And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof. Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them; wherefore they sold not their lands. Then Joseph said unto the people, “Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land. And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for food for your little ones.”
And they said, “Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and WE WILL BE PHARAOH’S SERVANTS.”

President Obama said, “Companies sustained these people for years.” The people of Indiana were sustained by industry? Not the Government. Get out of here!

President Obama said that this stimulus package would, “Save or create four million jobs.” So what he’s saying is that he no longer believes that this bill will create four million jobs. He has to be able to claim that he “Saved” four million jobs. Pretty slick.

President Obama said, “Government is the only entity with the resources,” to save this nation. I thought that Government only has resources by taking them from the people. Taxation is the only supply of Government resources. So President Obama spending your money will stimulate the economy. You are not qualified to determine how best to spend your money, only he is. So there isn’t enough money in the U.S. Treasury to cover this bill, President Obama, has thought that out as well, this plan is, “For the future of our children and grandchildren.”

And we will be the federal government’s servants, we and our children, forever. I stand now and proudly pledge my tax support as well as that of my children and grandchildren to this stimulus package. Because I believe my job will be one of the four million jobs saved and that is worth my grandchildren paying for it.

Thank you, Mr. President, I’ll never be able to thank you enough.
