Watch Mencken lose the race, first.
You can see how this one happens. He defends the ban on the second position, and then his opponent, McTaggart, comes up with (A), “a single example of such indiscretion does not constitute a precedent,” and (B), “that being the case, the prohibition of the second category is perfectly logical.” Then Mencken — a man who’d lost all but four of 30,000 newspaper columns — puts up “A single example of such indiscretion does not constitute a precedent” as a winning argument. He’s thought, “What if I go out on a limb here and argue that winning arguments are sometimes better than losing arguments? I bet if I push that notion, I’ll win!”
Thus, the match begins.
McTaggart: “A single instance of such indiscretion does not constitute a precedent.”
Mencken: “But you’ve really, really, really got to be kidding!”
You see it in the judging. He falls for McTaggart’s trick, which consists of phrasing A as a question and answering it. A question “How many rivers have you seen?” is equivalent to “How many rivers have you seen?”
You can see that in Mencken’s speech in this clip. He addresses, and wins over, the Unitarians at the beginning, and then starts to lose his advantage. Then McTaggart comes in with (A) and goes from high to low. The judges all favor McTaggart, because what he says goes against Mencken’s previously established premise that the second category is OK.
But Mencken is on to it. He goes right to (B). “Then let’s look at this the other way: how many rivers have you seen?” he says. “I say, three.”
You can see it in McTaggart’s reaction. He goes from winning to losing. McTaggart’s answer is “three,” and Mencken says, “Three. That being so, and before the law was repealed, three river men were guilty.” Then he asks, “In other
The largest single-day payday lending use to date in the United States was reported Tuesday in Gallup’s State of the Union 2014 summary.
According to Gallup’s figures, around 143,000 Americans reported using payday loans during the week of Oct. 30, 2013. That’s up 16% from the year before.
Gallup’s poll also saw an uptick in “ultra-short” credit, which is a payday loan in a two-week timeframe. Ultra-short credit use increased by around 50% in the last 12 months, and up by about 100% in the last year.
Each of these reports seems to show that either American consumers are borrowing more or there are just more payday lenders open for business. And there are good reasons why some are open.
“You can get as many as 16 loans in one day,” said Brian Murphy, editor of the Utah-based Cash & Loans. “If you get a new job you can get the money and your old boss can cash it. If you get a bad check, you can get the money and not have to wait till you get paid. And it’s up to $500, which is pretty good.”
Payday loans are supposed to be offered by retailers who are not licensed to make payday loans. So what business is Murphy talking about?
“We do a lot of business with some of the bigger retailers in their own stores. When they process a check or do an automatic teller machine transaction, they give us the name of the customer and we give them the money. So if you have a check come in for $1000, you can get $1000 from us for that person,” said Murphy.
And what if the customer forgets to pay the loan back, or defaults on the loan? “Nobody takes the title to the car. They just write it off,” said Murphy.
Payday loans are not to be confused with unsecured credit cards, student loans, or car loans, which are all considered “ultra-short” by the Federal Reserve.
The payday loan industry has come under fire by anti-poverty and pro-consumer groups who claim that many people who take these loans cannot afford to pay them back.
On the other hand, payday loans help consumers who are out of work get a loan to buy groceries and pay their rent. They also say the interest rates in the industry are modest.
“The interest rate is based on how much
