For a great example just look inside the Beltway.
 -- jim k, Austin,tx     
    That IS, the general rule. There is though, an occasional need for a spendthrift clause. In the government's case, its absolutely true. The servants need to have the gun and whip taken out of their hand when they have the master's check book / ohh yah, the servant has become the armed master, so there is no need to spend as if it was his own.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Our Military has the check book and they are meant to be our servants. The government is just a mask for what is really happening in America.

    Oh hail the great President Jimmy Carter. How compassionate he was-when using other people's money.

    Boy, these quotations are sop for the hard core.
     -- dick, fort worth     
    dick, small letters....
     -- Anonymous     
    Not only complex quotations convey the truth. This is a simple one, but it does portrait human nature and reality.

    Only RBE and dick could find fault with sound logic.
