Change is not always good (from the Inbox)

The buzzword of this election is 'CHANGE.' Candidates toss it around without saying what they want to change to. Years ago, there was an old tale in the Marine Corps about a lieutenant who inspected his Marines and told the 'Gunny' that they smelled bad. The lieutenant suggested that they change their underwear. The Gunny responded, 'Aye, aye, sir, I'll see to it immediately'.

He went into the tent and said, 'The lieutenant thinks you guys smell bad, and wants you to change your underwear. Smith, you change with Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowskie, Brown, you change with Schultz. Get to it'.

The moral: A candidate may promise change in Washington but don't count on things smelling (or being) any better.

UPDATE: Obama promises that if he's elected, he will take all of your money for tax purposes, but give you back... change. Chump change.
