There are ads these days which say that an investment is “guaranteed.” What is hilarious is the footnote: “Subject to claims paying ability.” In other words, you are guaranteed to get your money back if they can pay you but if they don’t have the ability well you get nada.
Here’s another great one. Party X puts forth a bill entitled “Safety in Meat Products Act.” Now the bill puts a tax on meat producers and uses it to fund research on snail darters. So Party Y votes “no.” Party X then tells us Party Y is against safe meat!! How dumb do they think we are?
