    He can't.

    Almost no one works for minimum wage, not even in the hamburger joints.

    The minimum wage accomplishes teenage unemployment and excessive goonion wages.

    ....and meth is bad for you
    Yes, but the bid to cover was 3.28 i do believe, meaning there was HEAVY demand for the 10 year. The auction was quite a success IMHO....
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Ya refuse to get it.

    I have wheel barrow full of Monopoly Money, aka Federal Reserve Notes aka "dollars". I buy a five-axis CNC machine and start up a business.

    Net result:

    I have a CNC machine, which is capital, and the seller has monopoly money, which is being devalued.

    The US has LOTS of capital.

    The heavy demand for a 10 year is precisely what I found startling, abnd goes to show that the doom and gloom is possibly premature.

    No, there's no question about it. The federal government isn't allowed to do it.

    aaaah....the law.....enforced by men prone to greed, enacted by men prone to greed.

    Of course politicians are people and prone to greed. Thing is, they are supposed to represent "the people," and when they don't, should be punished, as the law states. Those who schemed hedge funds did not take anything into consideration apart from thinking about their own personal gains. And they did it legally, because of deregulation.

    That is the difference. I know crap about economics, but I can figure this out. Even without talking points.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
