    I think Trump was setting a trap for biden. The 2000 giveaway wont happen until biden unleashes a 3 trillion major package in late january. Trump was going to hold back until Pelosi promised she would kick up the numbers, but then didnt without adding even MORE pork that the senate wont approve. Its a political game.

    If the Federal Reserve keeps printing money and we keep paying them interest, where does the 'money' come from?

      From Our Children’s Children’s Children. (reminds me of a late 60’s album...)

        And one of my favorites, too :-) Moody Blues. Saw 'em live in Dallas, a few years back and we're all so darn old. Back when they and we were young, who'd have ever thunk they'd be eventually concertizing in the Morton Symphony Center? Editing to add: The actual name of the piece is TO our Children's Children's Children....how sad to think we are giving them nothing but troubles. Also adding, I met the first of that generation, my daughter's son's daughter, last weekend. Poor little thing; she has no clue what awaits her. And I'm to old to be of help in a few years.

        Back to topic, though....this whole thing is a complete cluster.

          I saw them in Dallas too, about 7 or 8 years ago. We (the audience) sang Happy Birthday to Graeme Edge as it was his 71st. Were you at that one? I was sitting on the third row, two seats directly behind Mike Pinder, who was sadly already too sick to perform but who had a front row seat.

            Maybe. I was so overtaken by the whole thing I am not sure I remembered it all. Could be, though, and wouldn't it be funny if we were both in the audience together!

              It's a small world. I was going through La Guardia late one night when someone called out my name. There weren't 20 people left in the concourse, the stores were closed already, and I thought the NY muggers were pretty sophisticated if they already knew your name. It turns out I had taught this guy in a corporate education class ten years earlier, and somehow he remembered me. The improbability of that happening, but, hey, it happens somewhere every day. I'll see you for sure at another MB concert, whenever they all get together again ;^)

          Yes I know the album’s name is “To ... “. I have seen them thrice, once in Denver in the very early 70’s and twice in St Louis once in the mid 90’s and then about 10 years later. Justin Hayward played solo about 4 years ago and I enjoyed that performance as well. Back to topic .... congrats on being a grandparent. And yes it’s sad to think about what tribulations lie ahead for the future generations.

            OK, so I wasn’t trying to “correct” you - just sad that it was “to” instead of “from” - and I’ve been a grandparent for 27 years - this is my first GREAT grandchild!

            It’s sobering, when you think about it....but no intention on my part of correcting you. Just mentioning how it takes my breath away when I think of it.

      The Federal Reserve is completely controlled by DJT. They are not getting any money to meet their "obligations". They will die soon, and then DJT will usher in a new kind of money, backed by gold.

    That Bill and China Biden coming into office will fracture and destroy our country. As Jefferson, Maison and George Washington have stated the government (including the bureaucracy) must refreshed if it no longer represents the people (paraphrased).
