If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
Government IS a public relations campaign gone wrong... particularly when it becomes so centralized [IMHO].
Your opinion isn't far off from mine, Skip.
I often wonder why the criminally insane choose grade schools over such a target rich environment...They say that only 50% of Americans vote, and of that 50% most are near retirement age. Thus all the pork goes to them, and charged to the second class. They even sacrificed the middle class to borrow from China.I say let's default. We won't owe China anything afterwards, and seniors won't care if they lose their .3% interest on bonds... We'll be rich!
I don't think default would be such a good idea. OTOH, if we DO default and no one will lend us any money, well then... gub'mint might have to live within its means.
I think it is time to clean house.
It's past time.
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
