    Well, historically, it isn't true about the debt. But like Mark Twain said: "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story."

    President Reagan loved to poke fun at his age. He was simply exaggerating. I fondly remember this moment/I hope all can open it.

    True power is not dominance nor coercion ... true power having people do what you ask them to!

    “Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.”

    While at a bar a man met a woman and they were sharing a table over drinks and conversation. After a bit the man asks the woman if she'd have sex with him for a million dollars.

    She quickly replied 'Why yes I would'.

    The man than asked if she'd have sex with him for fifty dollars.

    The woman snaps back 'Just what do you think I am'?

    The man replies; 'We've established that already, now we're just negotiating over the price'.

    People that get caught cheating on their taxes will have some lien years ahead of them.
