Congress = Whorehouse
If you like pornography, start drooling! The Senate is in the throes of “debating” the infamous bankruptcy bill. The sex is hot and heavy as our slutty senators lie down and spreadeagle themselves for their johns in the credit industry. If you could catch a venereal disease from this kind of sex, our promiscuous lawmakers would have more Syphilis, Gonorrhea, AIDS and Herpes than all the brothels of the world put together.
Several proposed amendments to the bankruptcy bill — including the two rival proposals for increasing the minimum wage — were voted down in the Senate yesterday. When the credit industry tells its hookers to bend over, they bend oooover.
The popular stereotype is that only deadbeats and parasites declare bankruptcy. In reality, the debt cycle — penalty fees plus the drastically increased interest rates after one late payment — can make it impossible for debtors to dig their way out. By the time an individual has filed for bankruptcy, he/she has often repaid an amount greater than their original credit card debt plus double-digit interest, but still owes a staggering amount because of penalties.
A judge in Cleveland, ruling against Discover in their continuing persecution of one of their cardholders, said “How is it that the person who wants to do right ends up so worse off?”
When this bankruptcy bill becomes law, here is a trend that’s likely to increase: a bankruptcy attorney in North Carolina said that “people would be better off if they stopped paying” once they get in over their heads. Once you stop paying, creditors write off the debt and sell it to a debt collector. He said “They may harass you, but your balance doesn't keep rising. That's the irony.”
For Christians who are looking for moral issues, here is what the Bible says about usury and excessive interest.
Note: I sincerely apologize to any prostitute who was offended by being compared to the United States Congress.
