34. OK, maybe you don't realize that 'the govt' is you and me - our tax $$$.
So YOU and ME buy houses at auction - we give our tax dollars to the banks who hold these foreclosed homes. Woohoo for the bankers - they have more of our money, and no more foreclosed home to sell. So now the govt (you and me) own these houses. Who do we give 'em to? And while you're pondering that one, I want to throw my hat in the ring to receive a free house. I had to pay for mine all on my own. That kinda sucked, as I could've enjoyed much beer and vacation with that money. So we should probably have a system in place to make sure that whoever we give our new houses to did not actually spend all their house-buying money on beer and vacations. 'Cuz I'd be pretty pissed to have lived a relatively austere life saving up enough to buy the house when my neighbor spent all his time partying with the beer and the vacations and now gets a free house funded by my tax dollars. Maybe we should also buy him some more beer and send him on a few more vacations while we're at it?
