HITS the NAIL on
It's a slow day in a
East Texas town.
The sun is beating down, and the streets are deserted.
Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on
On this particular day a rich tourist from back east is driving
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
However, the whole town is now out of
debt and now looks to the future with a lot more optimism.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United
States Government is conducting business today.
