Talking Story Of Chuck

The Story of Chuck:

Young Chuck in Montana bought a horse from a farmer for $100.

The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

The next day the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry son, but I have some bad news... the horse died."

Chuck replied, "Well, then just give me my money back."
The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already."

Chuck said, "Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse."
The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?"

Chuck said, "I'm going to raffle him off."
The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead horse!"

Chuck said, "Sure I can, Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he'* dead."

A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, "What happened with that dead horse?"
Chuck said, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $998."

The farmer said, "Didn't anyone complain?"
Chuck said, "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."

Chuck grew up and now works for the government.

He'* the one who figured out how this "bail-out" is going to work.

Oooooooooo, SNAP!!! ROFLMAO. Pretty funny and very profound. Ya got to love the new Toxic Debt Program. 1 Trillions dollars in bad debt for sale. Buy as much as you want for 6%. Collect any interest you might be able to squeeze out of debtors that are already in default and give back to the government pennies on the dollar after your 6% is recovered. And if it isnt recovered in a given time, the FDIC will re-emburse you the original 6%. What a nice way to help out, and leave the banking powers that be, in place.....help the rich get richer.....and make the taxpayers absorb the bad debt without even the need for approval of Congress. Recent estimates now put the cost of combined war/bailout costs over the $150,000 mark for every man, woman, and child in the US. Where will we ever get the money, and how long will the world accept US currency as having value. The rednecks in this area have been saying trade your silver for bullets for quite some time. It'* worries me that it'* starting to make sense.

Chuck is my hero... lol

One of the shop managers made the point that he read an article that IF the government had given the several billions to the people, instead of the GM corporate giants who turned around and gave themselves new cars, houses, and a bonus paycheck to boot, that the general population that payed taxes could have recieved over $100,000 rebate check and that money would have been spent to stimulate the economy and would have in all likely hood given the gross populous enough money to buy 1 or more new cars and would have enevitably bailed out gm all in it own and got the economy up enough that we would have been fine... instead we are in a recession while the gm giants are flourishing with newly printed hundreds

we are so screwed

What'* worse is that a large portion of that debt has been purchased by China.
Can you say "Loan Shark"? That'* the wrong country to be indebted to for that much.
That'* some bad Ju-Ju in my book.
