Now there's some old fashioned thinking!

One big reason the debt is going up is because we haven't been paying for it for decades! Why start now?

Money is nothing but agreements. One way or another, debts are paid, or discharged, by agreements. Sometimes those agreements are not all that agreeable, if they include dismemberment or death or incarceration, but the debts they do get settled. Usually, the biggest bully gets the most...
