    So you personally want to make the rules for all of us? Sounds like a dictatorship to me.

    Being one tax payer is a tiny blade of grass in a great big field. Not hardly one who "pays the bills".
    What we have here, is a failure to presidentiate.

    And all too often they wind up alone and bitter, and have no clue why their wives left them.

    I'm paying the damn bills and you shouldn't, in my opinion, be able to have anything more dangerous than a nerf soccer ball.

    Looks to me like our debtors are paying the bills. Often the one loaning you the money has the say. So, does China get a say?
