A Slow Day in Texas... a litle Texas humor.


A Slow Day in Texas



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, and everybody lives on credit.

On this particular day a rich tourist from back east is driving
through. He stops at the motel and lays a $100 bill on the desk and says he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.

As soon as the man walks upstairs, the 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 at the
supplier of feed and fuel.

The guy at the Farmer's 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
rich traveler will not suspect anything.

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

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 the United States Government is conducting business today.

You!

    WE are watching and will gain control very soon! just not soon enough for some of us!!!

    I hear you. We could gain some control sooner if we could reach some Californians out there and get someone/anyone to recall Pelosi, Waters, Feinstein and Boxer. Feinstein is a member of that group The Trilateral Commission. She needs to go.

    Carly Fiorina? I saw her in an interview right after she left HP. I won't buy from them because I felt she was not treated right by that company. (And I don't really care for their products.) Anyway, I think she would be a good contender. Considering the mess California is in, people in that state need to vote against any incumbent and try a clean slate. It sure can't get any worse. For their own sake, I hope they get rid of Pelosi and Feinstein at least.

    That is right! She did another one on Fox today and she was great though she has cut her hair real short... she has breast cancer and this is because of her treament I am sure... I sure like her and her ideas.

    I'll be she is the woman my friend was telling me about. She really liked her too. Carly was a successful business woman who would probably do California some good. She ought to recall Boxer and get her out now.
