A short play by Shadowflux
Rich Business Owner: Oh, jeez, the economy is awful and my business is doing poorly, I could really use some financial help.
Government: Ok, we can help you with that, we'll just divert a small percentage of the money we take from the citizens, divert it to you and call it
a "Stimulus Package"
*Government hands RBO a large chunk of cash*
RBO: Wow, neat, thanks Gov, I better hold on to this money, just in case the economy gets real bad. If it continues to get worse I can always just
cut overhead by firing a few people, removing benefits, and decreasing the hours they work and I won't have to worry about losing my condo or my
vacation house thanks to this "Stimulus Package"!!
Gov: Yeah, whatever. Listen, I've got a big shipment of drugs coming in and they get a little paranoid around new people so if you don't mind
getting out of here
RBO: That's cool, I think I'm gonna take a vacation, thanks again!
