Why I’m Better Than The Banking Industry

…Unlike them, I put the stimulus and bailout funds back into the economy instead of using them for self-recapitalization.

Which is to say: I hit an ATM on Saturday and I’m paying one of the neighbor kids to de-blizzard my driveway today.

(Adopts heroic pose. Flag unfurls behind me. Eagle swoops in majestically and perches on my shoulder. Entire tableau is tinted gold by the sun breaking from behind rapidly-dissipating storm clouds.)

    As the Boston area now resembles the planet Hoth, I’m guessing you had to empty the ATM to pay for the task.

    I have my drive being cleared myself as we speak, it’s raining here in Wales and the White stuff is melting away.

    Isn’t there an app for that?

    The non-bailout folks are keeping the economy rolling, unlike the bailed out banks that just prop themselves up. I was able to keep a contractor and his crew working for about a month and a half on projects I could have done myself. I chose to have them do it due to the time constraints my wife would have for me.
