Quote of the Day
It is with government paper, and bank paper, as it is with the paper of private persons; that is, it is worth just what can be delivered in redemption of it, and no more.

The nominal budget is a poor indicator of the impact of government outlays and revenues.
I don't hold America responsible for the largely oppressive governments in the 22 Arab countries.
