How the stimulus works... (with Canadian actors to please the northern tier here...)

Great Example of our stimulus package



It is a slow day in the small Saskatchewan town of Pumphandle, and streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody is living on credit. A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs to pick one for the night. As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel 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 to his supplier, the Co-op. The guy at the 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 traveler will not suspect anything. At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves. No one produced anything. No one earned anything... 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 a Stimulus package works.

Pyramid scheme! Our money used to be backed by gold and silver. I believe Richard Nixon "dethroned" gold, and that's when the printing presses went into overdrive. With the trillions being printed out of thin air, are we heading into an era of hyper inflation? Suddenly, a 200 dollar Chinese t.v. could cost $1000. Your $200 dollar round trip airline ticket will cost $1200. Gasoline over $10.00 dollars per gallon. Troubling times indeed with virus alone. Now, the greatest economy in the world could be on a collision course with insolvency.

Bingo, Bulletman, that's exactly what's gong to happen. The dollar will be so thin it will be practically invisible. They will have to be printing $500 and $1000 dollar bills. Or they will do away with paper currency and all will be accountable . .. . ..bite my friggen tongue.!
