The golden rule, he who has the gold makes the rule ? Through fraud and being in bed with the gangsters, O, banksters, they live in high cotton and eat high on the hog ! Drunk with power and greed ! Smiling, not so much now, as they read this blog !

    If the 'we', was limited to a few and they spent endlessly with no paying back having anything to do with the endless free flow, the quote and concept gets 5 plus stars. If the reality were, every one managed their own finances the way the Congress does the nation's - the incentive to work would be gone and inflation would be far worse than the Weirmar Republic's example was. In that case I would have to give the quote a thumb's down..

    Mike's right. We ARE managing our finances like Congress -- everyone is completely in debt! The free lunch only lasts so long. "Let them eat cake." ... it's only a matter of time...
