    I do too Roger.
    The thing is, if you ask for a bailout, then the one bailing out has the right to put restrictions on how the money is used.

    Personally, I think the US could use a little adversity. Perhaps it will promote more hard work and creativity of the kind that gave us what we had before.

    Great, but I think this is the wrong forum for this.

    Too bad the govt doesn't put restrictions on the use of welfare money as well.

    I know what you mean. I do get tired of seeing people come in to buy pop, chips, and candy bars with food stamps. That junk is not food in my opinion. Food stamp recipients should have to go to a real grocery store and use them to by real food and not junk at a convenience store.
