This helps me understand the 'Bailout'.

By
Real Estate Services with Randi Brammer, Acctg.

SAVE or NOT TO SAVE...that is the question.  I am so confused by all the rhetoric from the media, I don't know who stole my money.  But the following may give you an idea as to what is happening.

A Young man from Montana, bought a horse from a farmer who was to deliver it the following day.

The next day the farmer pulled up and said, "I am sorry son, but the horse died."

"Well, then just give me back my money", the young man said.

"Can't do that, I spent it already", said the farmer.

"Ok, then bring me the dead horse".

"What are you going to do with it," asked the Farmer.

"I'm going to raffle him off."

The Farmer replied..."You can't do that!"

"Sure can, just watch me. I just won't tell anyone he is dead. " Quipped the young man.

The famer caught up with the young man and asked how the raffel went.

"I sold 500 ticket at $2 each and made $998," said the young man.

"Did anyone complain", asked the farmer.

"Only the guy who won the horse, so I gave him back his 2 bucks"!

This young man now works for the Government.  He is the one who has figured out how this 'Bail-out' is going to work!

Great story, Randi!  Sure reminds of some other events taking place right now.  Uncle Sam is finding out they are investing in some "dead horses", but instead of selling raffle tickets, they'll just kick the IRS into high gear!  We all ARE that young man who sold the horse.  :-)

Hi Randi, Oh, I too, have just recently read that one.  Too funny, but scary and oh so true.
