For a great example just look inside the Beltway.

That IS, the general rule. There is though, an occasional need for a spendthrift clause. In the government's case, its absolutely true. The servants need to have the gun and whip taken out of their hand when they have the master's check book / ohh yah, the servant has become the armed master, so there is no need to spend as if it was his own.

Our Military has the check book and they are meant to be our servants. The government is just a mask for what is really happening in America.

Oh hail the great President Jimmy Carter. How compassionate he was-when using other people's money.

    Not only complex quotations convey the truth. This is a simple one, but it does portrait human nature and reality.

    Only RBE and dick could find fault with sound logic.
