Ok, I keep hearing about banking and all these bailouts and other jibba jabba. So, I have been trying to wrap my mind around it. How we give them our money, they use that money to give other people money… pocketing a small portion for themselves. Then, they say ‘we are broke, give us more’. It seems like this:
So, I borrow my friend Jeff’s car. He has a couple, so it’s not a big deal. He trusts me. Then, he finds out I wasn’t using his car. I was renting it to my next door neighbor for $200 a week. Jeff seems concerned that I am making money off his car. He asks me why I don’t just buy my own car to rent out to people. I explain to him that it is too much risk. Only a sucker would do that.
He says he wants his car back then. I explain to him that I can’t. I crashed it, and I need $6,000 from him to fix it. He says “Why would I pay to fix it? You broke it, you fix it!”
I explain to him that I don’t have any cash to fix it. He says “what did you do with that money you made renting it out?” I explain I used it to invest in a boat, which turned out to be stolen. I explain to him what I really need is a boat to get this business off the ground. How about you and I go in on a boat together?
He says go to hell, and tells me to fix his car or else. So, I just called his mom (the Government) and explained the situation. She is not only paying to have the car fixed (so I can keep renting it out), she is taking 5 grand out of his college fund to help me pay for the boat.
