    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    What’s ugly about having friends? Bytheway do you have anything to add to the OP?

    Kooky.
    You have a right to be wrong.

    Trust Fund FAQs

    By law, income to the trust funds must be invested, on a daily basis, in securities guaranteed as to both principal and interest by the Federal government. All securities held by the trust funds are "special issues" of the United States Treasury. Such securities are available only to the trust funds.

    Limited government is a good thing, nonfunctional government is not. Texas is a great example why we should be wary of huge tax and spending cuts, the very basic services of government are, from what I can tell through the news (Faux included), completely worthless and education has especially been hard hit by Texas budget restraints.

    As I said, and you ignored, the opposite of the laffer curve holds true as well.

    And those are worthless IOUs. The Congress took the real money. They used it for other things. Then they put US securities (IOUs) on the ledger. There is no wealth to back the promise. They lied. And you believe them. Still. After all of this.

    Do you think a government spending two trillion dollars is not functioning? Awesome.

    um. you realized you just proved him right? IF we were running surpluses to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars; then those bills might be worth something. you see us running a balanced budget any time soon, much less a massive surplus?
