...Giveth and Taketh Away.
Shawn wants to go to bed.
It's a bit chilly - cold, in fact.
She has no blanket.
I offer to loan it to her.
She needs a blanket and has none, so she agrees.
She also agrees to pay interest.
I loan her the blanket.
About 2 AM, I come and take my blanket - plus a pillow case as interest.
Minutes later, she's cold again, so I loan her the blanket.
At 3 AM I come and take my blanket back - plus a sheet as interest.
Minutes later, she's really cold, so I loan her the blanket.
At 4 AM I come in and take my blanket - plus the alarm clock as interest.
Q: How long can I play this game before I own everything that Shawn has?
Q: Does Shawn ever get to own the blanket, as long as she borrows it?
Q: What makes you (We The People) think that you can borrow all of your money and ever expect to own it, then pay it all back plus interest and keep from losing your stuff?
RRIIIIiiiiiinnngggg..... It's the alarm clock.
Time to wake up.
