God made a banker

to be read in paul harveys voice

And on the eighth day God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need someone who can flip this for a quick buck.”

So God made a banker.

God said, “I need someone who doesn’t grow anything or make anything but who will borrow money from the public at 0% interest and then lend it back to the public at 2% or 5% or 10% and pay himself a bonus for doing so.”

the rest is here

2. Here's the original "god made a farmer":

http://CherryHillRAM.com (links to social networks below)

And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the field, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn colt and watch it die, then dry his eyes and say,'Maybe next year,' I need somebody who can shape an ax handle from an ash tree, shoe a horse with hunk of car tire, who can make a harness out hay wire, feed sacks and shoe scraps. Who, during planting time and harvest season will finish his 40-hour week by Tuesday noon and then, paining from tractor back, put in another 72 hours." So God made the farmer.

God said, "I need somebody strong enough to clear trees and heave bales, yet gentle enough to yean lambs and wean pigs and tend the pink-comb pullets, who will stop his mower for an hour to splint the leg of a meadowlark."

It had to be somebody who'd plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed, breed, and brake, and disk, and plow, and plant, and tie the fleece and strain the milk, . Somebody who'd bale a family together with the soft, strong bonds of sharing, who would laugh, and then sigh and then reply with smiling eyes when his son says that he wants to spend his life doing what Dad does. "So God made a farmer."

12. Doesn't need to be that hard

 

Really. It has been proven in practice that our basic material needs can be taken care of with only four hours of daily word or less with intelligent horticulture and gathering. Our needs for self-expression and search for deeper meaning need not be much more complicated - but I do love Internet and wish that there is sustainable way to keep this going.

With little time left to live.

11. It certainly does.

I know a few people who think it's just dandy what bankers do and laugh that we're "too stupid to stop them"

13. God mad a banker

 

to connect us as a global society the quickest, most dependent way (which has been also very cruel, but what's done is done). Now most of us are totally dependent from global society, we don't need banker monopoly of money creation and hierarchic globalization any more, but see that it is hurting all of us. Progress and adapt, democratize money creation.

17. If they're gonna throw religion into the whole mix, they really ought to say

"So Satan made a banker..."

Isn't God supposed to be the good guy in the morality play?
