Conductor! We’re heading for a cliff!

Quick, ask the passengers if we should put on the brakes, making them uncomfortable for a while and making a horrific screaching noise.

Sir, they said “no”.

OK. Cliff it is.

We’re apparently W-A-Y past $20 trillion, sjb. More like $100 trillion, I’ve read.

Yeah, too bad about that. I hear the Bank Examiner was going to send George to prison and shut it down.

I fully intend to watch the end of that movie someday to see if anything else happened.

Same as in Argentina 10 yrs ago. Get your cash out before it is devalued or your bank goes on extended holiday.

But will they turn on the ‘smoking allowed’ sign before going over the cliff?

Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em!
