Useless Dirt

June 10, 2008 0 Comments

“See this 2 acres of VACANT land? Well, thanks to the crash in commercial real estate loans, and the related collapse in big companies that buy or build self-storage facilities in 2007, I spent, and lost, so much money trying to develop a self-storage facility on this hunk of dirt that I didn’t get a tax rebate. But I did my part to stimulate the economy. I helped employ soils engineers, architects, 3D modelers, Kinko’s staffers, self-storage acquisition reps, tradeshow techs, a lawyer or two, and some good ol’ boys.

I’m not asking for pity, but I want you to know that I’d MUCH rather have that $1,200 stimulus check. Not everyone who didn’t get a stimulus check is a welfare cheat. I’ve netted more money and paid more taxes ever year since I was 14, and that was a long, long time ago. “
