Internet Sorta Confirmation Of The Day -- Latham Ford

A Ford Dealer's Report - From Tom Selkis' (Latham Ford) Facebook has been flying around the internet since at least October. 

We called the dealership in Latham, N.Y. Yes, Mr. Selkis is the owner. Yes, the receptionist knew about the piece. She laughed about it, quickly said she she would neither confirm nor deny it, and then said she had to take another call.

Hat tip Judy McGrane. Here it is:

"I'll try to make this as short and to the point as I can.

One of my salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to  lease a brand new Focus.

As he was reviewing her credit application with her he noticed she was  on social security disability.

He said to her you don't look like you're disabled and unable to work.

She said well I'm really not. I could work if I wanted to, but I make  more now than I did when I was working and got hurt (non-disabling  injury).

She said the gov't sends her $1500.00 a month in 1 check. And she gets  $700.00 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), and $800.00 a month for  rent.

Oh yeah, and 250 minutes free on her phone.

That is just south of $3500.00 a month.

When she was working, she was taking home about $330.00 per week.

Do the math and then ask yourself why the hell should she go back to  work.

If you multiply that by millions of people, you start to realize the  scope of the problem we face as a country.

Once the socialists have 51% of the population in that same scenario,  we are finished.

The question is when do we cross that threshold if we haven't already,  and there are not enough people working to pay enough taxes to support  the non-working people? Riots?? Be prepared to protect your homes.

She didn't lease the Focus here because the dealer down the road beat  our deal by $10.00/month.

Glad to know she is so frugal with her hard earned money."
