It is the month of August, a resort town
sits next to the shores of a
lake. 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 dollar bill
on the reception
counter,  and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in
order to pick  one.
 The  hotel proprietor takes the 100
dollar bill and runs to pay his debt
to the
butcher.
 The  Butcher takes the 100 dollar bill, and runs to pay
his debt to the
pig  raiser.
 The  pig raiser takes the
100 dollar bill, and runs to pay his debt to
the  supplier of his feed
and fuel.
 The  supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 dollar bill
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 dollar
bill  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 dollar bill 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 dollar bill, 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.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
