P. T. Barnum, the American showman and scam artist best remembered for promoting celebrated hoaxes and for founding the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is attributed with saying, “There’s a sucker born every minute.”
Barnum died in 1891, but were he alive today, he would be laughing his ass off at the suckers who flocked to a Bronx loan shark, E & M Multi-Services, a tax preparation outfit to receive a “free” debit card preloaded with funds worth $1,000 in cash.
In order to procure the so-called “Obama Stimulus Card”, the hoodwinked dupes supplied E & M Multi-Services with their Social Security cards, state IDs and more. Only one problem though: their cards were frozen due to a pending fraud investigation.
Remember when Peggy Joseph proclaimed that Obama would pay for her mortgage and put gas in her car?
These bamboozled boobs will vote for the errand boy sent by grocery clerks again this year because they never learn.
Oh, and let’s not forget about the identity theft issue, although I doubt any of them have a credit rating worth bragging about. These are the same folks who vehemently oppose showing their ID to cast a vote in an election, but like good little sheeples, willingly hand over their documents for “free” Obama money.
Barnum was right. There is a sucker born every minute.
