Poooof!! And The Government Said Let There Be…Three Billion Dollars!
Now this is just getting silly! This post is about DEBT! The Cash For Clunkers program has been, or is in the process of being revitalized. Yep, that’s right. Two billion dollars out of thin air, or maybe I should say, out of your children’s children’s front pocket. Debt is dumb and so is this ridiculous program!
Let me see if I understand this correctly. The Government taxes you into servitude, creates a program in which you are said to receive FREE money by giving you up to $4,500 in discounts, and don’t forget about the best part. You get DEBT! Oh how generous! That $4,500 will be paid back by your grandchildren! You will enjoy now what your grandchildren will pay back later! I am sure they will love it, don’t you worry. I mean seriously, who doesn’t just LOVE paying for something someone else enjoyed. Where do I sign up?
Oh thank you Washington! Thanks for enslaving our entire family for generations to come! You are so wonderful Washington! What would we do without you? Thanks for putting the tab on my children’s future, how can we ever repay you?
The Gig Is Up!
You might be good at fooling some, but not all. We know this isn’t FREE money! We know it’s OUR money. We know it’s OUR KIDS money. We’re on to you. How dare you. Give it back! This is how you stimulate the economy? Tax us to death, act like the hero by giving us a gift, BUT ONLY if we buy a new car that YOU approve of, and allowing our children to foot the bill owed for the “free” loan? Pure brilliance on your part, I must say!
Yes, I think it is you that should be reported to Social Services, for crimes of endangerment and child abuse. Maybe we need to take America away from you since you are dangerous to its well being. You are not a fit parent, and we are watching your every move.
P.S. – Here are 12 Steps and principles you can follow to regain our trust. I know a guy I think you should meet. His name is Dave Ramsey and he has a real good plan for spending less than you make, or in your case less than you steal. (Sorry about that last part, I have an active involuntary, spasmodic tic.)
Enemy of Debt
FRONT PAGE NEWS!
Washington says: “Debt For Suckers Program Is A Success”!
In just four euphoric days, 250,000 people enthusiastically gave their children the curse that is debt. Let’s show our thanks by singing, All Praise Be To Washington! (song not found in the Constitution)
As if that wasn’t enough, they have just added another $2,000,000,000 to the precious gift! That’s 12 Days, 750,000 lives saved from rising unemployment driving an older car, and THREE BILLION DOLLARS of DEBT for the unsuspecting kids, and for what? New debt and a new car! How’s that “new debt smell”?
Think SMART, Think BIG, Think DEBT FREE!
Please everyone! Do not fall for this trickery! Do not go into debt for the Government! Do not sell your children’s freedom. You’re paying for the car note on what you bought above the “discount”, and your kids are paying for the discount. Think SMART!
In fact you should be running from debt! You know about the recession right? Yeah unemployment is pretty high too and what if you are next? What if your current situation changes? Get out of debt instead! Say no to the master! Don’t listen to the naysayers either, they are broke! Get out of debt and change your life for good!!! Run now, and save your family! Think BIG!
Do you “need” a new car? Really? Is that Government carrot that enticing? If you in fact need a car, buy a used one and make sure you pay with cash, but hurry the value of your dollars might be dropping soon. Seriously, you don’t need a heavy car payment following you around for the next 3-6 years. Get a deal by paying with cash, and avoiding the bondage! It is worth it! You are worth it! And in case you don’t already know this, your kids are worth it! Think DEBT FREE!
Convinced? You should be! Think about the kids, and JUST SAY NO!
Pssst…what kind of wrapping paper should we use?
