'A moment I've been dreading. George brought his n'er-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida; the one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work.'
From the REAGAN DIARIES------entry dated May 17, 1986.
It’s an intertube rumor but I’ll just bet the old man was thinking what a loser his VP’s son was.
This is big; half my life will be down the drain but the best is yet to come so beat the rush and find my birthday present early. But what does one get a man that has everything? Well first start with Penicillin but then think about sending me something that reminds me of you…no undergarments please.
No license, not a journeyman card or even an apprentice certificate as required by the local government where he works for a plumbing contractor but this guy knows all about how “his “ business will be affected by Obama’s health care plan. Well here’s how it goes dip wad, you'd be able to go to the doctor and wouldn't have to pretend you were injured on the job instead of say, possibly getting too drunk at home and falling down the steps, cracking open your oversized head then fraudulently making a claim on your bosses workman’s comp insurance. See, I’ve met a hundred guy’s like you on the job, running your fricken mouth all day long regurgitating what you heard on Rush the day before. But you see Joe, I run the job and you’re… FIRED!
Bright Greetings Dear American: I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.
I am Ministry of Treasury of the Republic of America. My country has had a crisis that has caused the need for a large transfer of funds of 700 billion dollars US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you.
I am working with renowned Mr. Phil Gram, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Ministry of Treasury in January. As a Senator, you may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s. This transaction is 100% safe.
This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.
Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we transfer your commission for this transaction. After I receive you're information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.
Wonderful salutations to you cherish friend from Republic of America.
