Counting my generation, my parents, and millions of cripples, children and frauds, you get the idea. Nobody knows how to pay for it. or who to take the money from.

None the less, we’ll get our checks!
Just look at the terror in Washington as one of the precious POLITICIANS went down in the Tuscon shooting and watch the crooks run for the printing presses as they imagine a hundred shooters at every political rally.
And they may see it!
Remember they couldn’t outlaw the guns and it only takes a handful like Loughner to ruin the party in D.C.
