Just a quick note. Two quotes to think about:
“If you think education is difficult, try being stupid”
A friend offered this:
The government’s view on our economic state:
“If it moves, tax it.
If it keeps moving, regulate it.
If it stops moving, subsidize it.”
Find ways to hang on to your money, because the government is going to be coming after it in the form of taxes, mandates and regulations. Someone has to pay down the debt…..
Speaking of national debt, I read a good observation: If the airlines could keep flying in the aftermath of 9/11 with their bankruptcy issues, why couldn’t the car manufacturers weather their crisis? The observation offered was that the manufacturers filing for bankruptcy protection, thus able to exit (or restructure) their legacy debt (unions), probably would have been better off than the path the government took.
