A Stimulus Story



It is the month of August, on the shores of the Black Sea.

It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. It is tough
times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town.
He enters the only hotel, lays a 100 Euro note on the reception counter,
and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.
The hotel proprietor takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to
the butcher. The Butcher takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay
his debt to the pig grower.
The pig grower takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the
supplier of his feed and fuel.
The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his
debt to the town's prostitute that in these hard times, gave her
"services" on credit.
The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 Euro note
to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she
brought her clients there.
The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 Euro note back on the counter so
that the rich tourist will not suspect
anything.
At that moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms,
and takes his 100 Euro note, after saying that he did not like any of the
rooms, and leaves town.
No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and
looks to the future with a lot of optimism..


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

And if that doesn't scare the shit out of you, then you are brain dead!

But!...the tourist didnt spend a dime....but hes going to stop eat a dinner of pork chops then hes going to get laid at a different hotel....And when he leves town hes going to stop and get gas...and it only cost him all together $98.50......So..I dont know what this proves but he had a good time...This all works the way you say as long as no one makes a profit in any of there dealings...but that aint good for anyone....
