A Brilliant Scam
So. How are you enjoying DTV, the new digital television the government kept telling us we needed to buy a converter box for? Oh, you got your converter box for $20 after the discount provided by the government, for free, because they are so nice? That's swell. But wait, what's that you say? You paid your money and there is still no DTV to use that box for? Congratulations, my friend. You were taken by a huge, brilliant scam! See, you bought those boxes in the middle of a depression, at a time when corporations needed every dollar they could get. With the help of their cronies in the government, they got loads of money by selling you something you don't need. Tell me, do you really think the DTV crap is going to be rolled out even in July, or whenever they moved the date to? Doubtful. So enjoy your converter box. Maybe you can use it for a paperweight.
