Political Debate on the Train...

This morning on the way in, the train was packed. There were two guys standing in the aisle next to my seat. One guy complained that he had too much crap in his garage and that he needed to get rid of it…including a pin ball machine. The other guy explains how he could have a garage sale or sell things on Craigslist. He says it’s a great way to teach his kids about mercantilism and economy. He starts going on about how he wished he taught his kids about that sort of thing before it was too late. One of his kids just purchased a home and his kid commented that he didn’t realize how much crap he bought on impulse until he had to move it. After this big long explanation of how it will be a great lesson for the kids and while he’s at it, get a little bit of cash too, the other guy replies “I’d just rather take it all to Goodwill and get a tax credit. That’s a good lesson for the kids too.” The other guy retorts “Ah, yes! A tax credit! The Romney way! Loopholes and tax credits. I see how it is.”  AND…Before it could turn in to a heated debate in front of my seat, the train stopped at North Station and we begin to disembark the train! FEW!! I did not want a front row seat to that one. You could tell as they were walking off the train that it was going to get ugly.
