I like to think of this all as one super-giant abandoned self-storage unit up for blind auction.

I like how this "Grace Nearing" thinks, and, many of the other comments are on-point, too. Any idea involving the use of the words "faith" and "betting" should send instant red flags. Like one of the commentors said, it's like we're giving them money to go to Vegas, and, if they win, we get paid back. And, if they don't? Well, you know.

"I like to think of this all as one super-giant abandoned self-storage unit up for blind auction. The taxpayers supply most of the money. Any TVs and stereos and vintage baseball cards go the banks and hedge funds. The taxpayers get the lice-infested stained mattresses and the suitcases filled with dirty laundry and oozy shampoo bottles. Not only do we have to cart’em away, we also have to pay a separate fee to chuck’em into the municipal dump."

Thanks Damon for picking this one out, seems to be a really good formulation. BTW, I hope I'm not 'personal trolling' you by this comment.....
