I wasted several hours at a local car dealership yesterday. The car I was originally interested in, was of course, already sold. So I was on the verge of buying a slightly older car with more miles and features I didn't care about, for a similar price.
Everything seemed fine when working with the sales people. They worked out an interest rate and payment plan that was within my budget.
Then we get to the final guy as a 'formality'. Turns out the Welfare Whore Maggot Bankers that are still stealing hundreds of billions of dollars of public money, wanted 12.5% - 18% in loan shark interest. The humorless finance guy with a crappy demeanor, explained in so many words that the shittier the car, the more the bankers want to rape the customers. Cheaper cars cost much more than expensive cars.
Screw the thieves. They are still stealing my money through my tax dollars. I'm not volunteering to give them a bigger cut of my pay for no good reason. For no fracking reach around...
I'm back to looking at bicycles. I'll fix my POS van.
