15. Some folks understand that "bailing" is multiple buckets full and doesn't patch holes.

The metaphor implicit in "bail out" is uncannily accurate. The navigators don't know where we're going because they're bailing. The rowers stopped rowing - we're dead in the water - because they're bailing. We SAID "the boat has HOLES in it!!" and we were ignored.

Get ready to swim.

There's something very ironic about a 'problem' that has to do with debt and collateral -- and folks who think it can be solved by putting our children and grandchildren into dept where their future is the collateral.

What do some people HATE our children and grandchildren??? They send them to the Middle East to die - to gas up Daddy's SUV. They burden them with a lifetime of debt, so Daddy doesn't have to pay for his wars.

Why??

... because the greedy fuck who gets a long term capital gain from the labor of other people and doesn't have to work himself doesn't want to pay any TAXES!!! (And he doesn't ... not this year and not next year.)
