“This has been extremely frustrating for us, as I am sure it has been for your neighbors. I do apologize and we have been working frantically to secure new financing. Banks have been given huge infusions of cash but are apparently shoring up their balance sheets and not lending it out. We have had our best year ever in business despite the trying times and still have had a very hard time getting a loan.”
Our sympathies go out to Mr. Turner. He is the poster child for life in 2009 America. Nothing could shine a brighter spotlight on the atrocious job our nation’s leaders have done thus far in their flailing attempts to guide us out of the financial plight that has gripped our nation. They continue to reward major industries for their ineptitude, and to offer no assistance to the small businesses struggling to survive, as those whose business used to be offering credit have turned off the flow.
