Recently, I received a correspondence from a dear friend—my twin brother—regarding his disgust with our elected officials for enabling appointed cabinet members to literally waste our money and incur debts that simply can’t be paid.
Corporations who have failed because of fictitious accounting practices deserve what they get. Their shareholders should hold them accountable. The gluttonous crooks should have to reimburse shareholders and face imprisonment. Moreover, the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department could definitely spend $700 billion a little wiser.
My brother had a marvelous idea. Why not take the $700 billion and divide it among the 302 million citizens of this great country. By my estimate, each citizen would receive approximately $2.3 million.
Conceivably, this amount of money would guarantee a healthier economy. I’m not an economist, but I feel comfortable saying: Hell, yes, it would.
