This afternoon I heard a radio ad for a local car dealership. I don't remember the exact words, but they went something like this:
If you have an income - we will approve you for a vehicle. Are you on unemployment? Are you a babysitter on an hourly wage? It doesn't matter - you have an income - you get approved! All you need is money coming in and you will be approved!
And then we wonder what's wrong with the economy... Unemployment = Income ?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I guess technically unemployment could be considered "income" because it's money coming in to a household. But for it to be considered "income" to go out and buy a car... come on.
