Big Brother Has Some New Year's Resolutions for You and Me

I was going to make New Year's resolutions this year, but am still working on my 2009 list. Then I see that the federal government has made some resolutions for me:

Drink Less Alcohol
Get a Better Education
Get a Better Job
Get Fit
Lose Weight
Manage Debt
Manage Stress
Quit Smoking Now
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle
Save Money
Take a Trip
Volunteer to Help Others

That's a lot for the federal government to ask. How about I just pay my taxes.

And I should "quit" smoking now but only drink "less" alchohol. What's that about?

But some of those resolutions would be good for the federal government itself: Lose Weight, Manage Debt, Save Money, Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Get to it.
