Keeping the IRA in Check

It seems that Uncle Sam is slipping in the war on terror. I heard that the limit on IRA contributions is now $5,000 for U.S. citizens (up $500 from last year). How will we ever see peace in Ireland if we allow this sort of thing?

I had to laugh because I my first thought was "individual retirement accounts." The sentence made no sense and I thought there was some humor I just wasn't getting. Then - I had a second thought. :-) You're right. I wonder why the change in policy? And who sets that policy? When I lived overseas, I had a friend who was a member of Sinn Fein. He told some interesting stories.

OK, like the brain in a vat, this is a joke. I guess it bombed. I read on a friend's site about the new limit on IRA (retirement accounts) contributions, and I tried to make it sound like I was confused. Bad joke.

Okay - now I'm REALLY laughing. I got the joke...and then thought I didn't get it. It's amazing how much humor is in body language and tone of voice. :-) I sort of feel dumb, but hey -- at least I caught the joke for a bit even if it ran away quickly. :-)
