A Stimulus Story  -  Historieta de un Estimulo Financiero

 

It is the month of April, 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.

 Es agosto, una pequeña ciudad de la costa en plena temporada; cae una lluvia torrencial hace varios días, la ciudad parece desierta. Todos tienen deudas y viven a base de créditos.

 

 

Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town.

 Por fortuna, llega un ruso forrado y entra en un pequeño hotel con encanto. Pide una habitación.

 

 

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.

 Pone un billete de 100€ en la mesa del recepcionista y se va a ver las habitaciones.

 

 

The hotel proprietor takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the butcher.

 El jefe del hotel agarra el billete y sale corriendo a pagar sus deudas con el carnicero.

 

 

The Butcher takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the pig grower.

Este agarra el billete y corre a pagar su deuda con el criador de cerdos.

 

 

The pig grower takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel.

 A su turno éste se da prisa a pagar lo que le debe al proveedor de alimentos para animales.

 

 

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.

 El de los alimentos agarra el billete al vuelo y corre a liquidar su deuda con la prostituta a la que hace tiempo que no paga. En tiempos de crisis, hasta ella ofrece servicios a crédito.

 

 

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.

La prostituta agarra el billete y sale para el pequeño hotel donde había traído a sus clientes las últimas veces y que todavía no había pagado. Entrega el billete de 100€ al dueño del hotel, y liquida sus deudas.

 

 

The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 Euro note back on the counter.
 

 

 

 

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.

 En este momento baja el ruso, que acaba de echar un vistazo a las habitaciones, dice que no le convence ninguna, agarra el billete que había dado antes, y se va de la ciudad.

 

 

No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism..

Nadie ha ganado un centavo, pero ahora toda la ciudad vive sin deudas y mira el futuro con confianza!

 

 

 

 

 

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

New Viruses on the loose!

Politically Correct virus: Never calls itself a "virus", but instead refers to itself as an "electronic microorganism."

Government Economist virus: Nothing works, but all your diagnostic software says everything is fine.

New World Order virus: Probably harmless, but it makes a lot of people really mad just thinking about it.

Federal Bureaucrat virus: Divides your hard disk into hundreds of little units, each of which does practically nothing, but all of which claim to be the most important part of your computer.

Texas virus: Makes sure that it's bigger than any other file.

Adam and Eve virus: Takes a couple of bytes out of your Apple.

Congressional virus: The computer locks up, screen splits erratically with a message appearing on each half blaming the other side for the problem.

Airline virus: You're in Dallas but your data is in Singapore.

Freudian virus: Your computer becomes obsessed with marrying to its own motherboard.

Public Television virus: Your programs stop every few minutes to ask for money.

Elvis virus: Your computer gets fat, slow and lazy, then self destructs only to resurface at shopping malls and service stations across rural America.

Nike virus: Just does it.

Congressional virus #2: Runs every program on the hard drive simultaneously, but doesn't allow the user to accomplish anything.

Star Trek virus: Invades your system in places where no virus has gone before.

Health Care virus: Tests your system for a day, finds nothing wrong, and sends you a bill for $4,500.

The economy is so bad that…
  • I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.
  • I ordered a burger at McDonald’s and the kid behind the counter asked, “Can you afford fries with that?”
  • CEOs are now playing miniature golf.
  • If the bank returns your check marked “Insufficient Funds,” you call them and ask if they meant you or them.
  • Hot Wheels and Matchbox stocks are trading higher than GM.
  • McDonald’s is selling the Quarter Ouncer.
  • Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children’s names.
  • A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.
  • Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting.
  • Motel Six won’t leave the light on anymore.
  • The Mafia is laying off judges.
  • Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 congressmen.

Whenever you find you are on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect

                     --- Mark Twain

We have never observed a great civilization with a population as old as the United States will have in the twenty-first century; we have never observed a great civilization that is as secular as we are apparently going to become; and we have had only half a century of experience with advanced welfare states...Charles Murray
