True story yesterday at the dealership.....

"I'll try to make this as short and to the point as I can. One of my
salesmen here had a women in his office yesterday wanting to lease a
brand new Focus. As he was reviewing her credit app with her he noticed
she was on social security disability. He said to her you don't look
like you're disabled and unable to work.
She said well I'm really not, I could work if I wanted to but I make more
now then I did when I was working and got hurt (non-disabling injury). She
said the gov't sends
her $1500.00 a month in 1 check, she gets $700.00 a month on an EBT card
(food stamps), and $800.00 a month for rent. Oh yeah and 250 mins
free on her phone. That is just south of $3500.00 a month. When she was
working she was taking home about $330.00 per week. Do the math and
then ask yourself why the hell should she go back to work. If you multiply
that by millions of people, you start to realize the scope of
the problem we face as a country.
Once the socialists have 51% of the population in that same scenario we
are finished. The question is when do we cross that threshold if we haven't
She didn't lease the Focus here because the dealer down the road beat our
deal by $10.00/month. Glad to know she is so frugal with her hard
earned money."
