    It's a slow day in Lousiana

    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 traveling Shreveport salesman is driving through
    town. He stops at the Hotel Cazan and lays a $100 bill on the desk
    saying hewants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one in
    which to spend the night.As soon as the man walks upstairs, Bosco, the
    owner, grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to Boudreaux
    the butcher.Boudreaux takes the $100 and runs down the street to
    retire his debt to Trosclair the pig farmer.Trosclair takes the $100
    and heads off to pay his bill at T-Boy's Farmers Co-op, the local
    supplier of feed and fuel.T-Boy, at the Farmer's Co-op, takes the $100
    and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, Clarise, who has
    also been facing hard times and has had to offer her "services" on
    credit.Clarise rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with
    Bosco, the hotel owner.Bosco then places the $100 back on the counter
    so the travelling salesman will not suspect anything.At that moment
    the salesman 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, my friend, is how the United States Government
    is conducting business today.
