Common

you really outdid yourself.

I was laughing so hard at the sight of Smiley & Dick Powell in formal wear doing a Fred & Ginger routine, they may have heard me in the adjacent hotel room.

With a $3,000,000,000 as in billion dollar deficit facing the legislature for 2011, one must wonder how long the State can continue to grant these incentives. What will the chain saw wack first? Funding for tax credits, funding for state issued entitlements, or funding for education & teacher salaries?

I wonder if we can qualify for some incentives on the Island? We're thinking about blowing up both bridges and becoming Monaco West. We've already identified our first Prince. Off shore gambling; off shore banking with more secrecy than Switzerland; Gentlemen's Clubs; maybe a political refuge for deposed Dictators who managed to squirrel away their Nation's Treasury in one of our Banks before they took the Gulfstream into the Sunset.

We'd even have Michael Caine available to reprise his role from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

The opportunities are endless. We'll employ thousands in permanent, high paying jobs. Security, ferry operators, personal chefs, croupiers, tennis instructors just to name a few.

All we need are some tax credit initiatives and our Freedom. The Duchy of Topsail. Has a good ring to it.

We could even host the 2032 Olympics.

Amazing how light headed one can become while in Raleigh. No wonder the Legislature and Smiley lose track with reality.
