I don't think it's possible for our country to ever come to terms with the fact that we lit trillions of dollars on fire.
And, you know that's fine. We can print money. Right now we're printing money and letting the banksters have it for free. We could print money and build more water parks in Iraq. We could print money and give it to worthy bloggers such as yours truly. It won't happen, but there should be a helicopter drop.
