How it's done

It's a slow day in a little East Texas town. The sun is
beating down,and the streets are deserted. Times are tough,
everybody is in debt, andeverybody lives on credit.....

On this particular day a rich tourist from back east is
drivingthrough town. He stops at the motel and lays a $100 bill
on the desk sayinghe wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in
order to pick one to spend thenight..

As soon as the man walks upstairs, the owner grabs the
bill and runsnext door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to
retire his debtto the pig farmer.

The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his
bill at thesupplier of feed and fuel.

The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs
to pay his debtto the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times andhas had tooffer her "services" on credit.

The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill
with thehotel owner.

The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so therich traveler will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs,
picks up the $100bill, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the money, andleaves town.

No one produced anything. No one earned anything.

However, the whole town is now out of debt and nowlooks to the futurewith a lot more optimism..

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