  1. The hungry pig feeds again. I wonder when we’ll finally say enough is enough and budget for our own needs, pay our own bills, and quit feeding at the public trough. Doesn’t look like that’s today.

  2. Patriot, it may be sooner than later due to our currency being totally fiat and China offering its currency as the new world standard.
