QWAK,In 2009 the basic BUSINESS modle has changed as demonstrated with this SIMPLE modle. ;)
It is the month of August, on the shores of the Black Sea. It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted.
It is tough times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.
Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town.
He enters the only hotel, lays a 100 Euro note on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.
The hotel proprietor takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the butcher.
The Butcher takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the pig grower.
The pig grower takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel.
The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the town's prostitute that in these hard times, gave her "services" on credit.
The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 Euro note to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her clients there.
The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 Euro note back on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything.
At that moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and takes his 100 Euro note, after saying that he did not like any of the rooms, and leaves town.
No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is doing business today! :)
Sounds OK but they forgot to put CHINA in the EQUASION -- OOPS! :(
They ALWAYS forget SOMTHING!! ;)
QWAK,bohraht, Clint and I worked things out rather quickly after he took OFFENCE to his TEACHERS comments (ME) and was QUICKLY convinced that trying to SHOOT DUCKS with a 44 MAGNUM was NOT a very good IDEA! ;)
QWAK,brudgie71,Glad you injoyed it! :)
Here is one that you never saw on TV ;) Some say it was ware they got the idea for one of Clints BEST movies -- It was originaly named "The GOOD the BAD and the HARD DRIVE" but they renamed it so it never was released. :)

China is not what you think.
China placed all its people into serfdom - serving the West for scraps of green colored paper.
A naive one would say China is the rich tourist. A smart one would recognize China is part of the conspiracy is an just another emporer with no clothes.
But the Duck is neither. The Duck only sees that the sky is falling. Someday, he will see the world for what it is and not let his paranoid mind issue missives of nonsense.
Do you think so, Canoodle. Do you think so. Where were you a half decade ago when I pointed that out.
But give the Devil Dwuck his due. He saw the danger in the sub-prime market better than you, I and whole lot of 'smart' business folk and politicians. Course he was concerned about the debtor-homeowner adn not the banks and debt holders.
QWAK,canyoucanoe,NOTHING is as it seems to be or rather as the ones in power would like all the people to believe! :(
Canucanoe -- did I ever tell you that SOME TIMES -- you make me feel like Clint Eastwood! ?? :)
It's TRUE --- he talked to TREES and I some times talk to YOU (and trees too) and we both have similar converation problems -- him with TREES and ME with trees and YOU! :)
LOL It's a nice song any way. :)
