Sad but True
« on: March 28, 2010, 08:06:28 AM »
This is fictitious but it simulates just how they run this country.

The $100 Dollar Bill   

  It's a slow day in a little East Texas town. The sun is
beating down, and the streets are deserted.  Times are tough,
everybody is in debt,  and everybody lives on credit...
 
On this particular day a rich tourist from back east is driving through town.

He stops at the motel and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect

the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.
 
As soon as the man walks upstairs, the owner grabs the bill and runs
 next door to pay his debt to the butcher.
 
The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt
 to the pig farmer.
 
The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill at the
 supplier of feed and fuel.
 
The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to
 the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to
 offer her "services" on credit.
 
The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel
 owner.
 
The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the
 rich traveler will not suspect anything.
 
At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, picks up the $100
 bill, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the money, and
 leaves town.
 
No one produced anything. No one earned anything.
 
However, the whole town is now out of debt and now looks to the future
 with great optimism.

 
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is conducting business today.
