Repeal that [welfare] law, and you will soon see a change in their manners.  St. Monday and St. Tuesday, will soon cease to be holidays.  Six days shalt thou labor, though one of the old commandments long treated as out of date, will again be looked upon as a respectable precept; industry will increase, and with it plenty among the lower people; their circumstances will mend, and more will be done for their happiness by inuring them to provide for themselves, than could be done by dividing all your estates among them."
-- Benjamin Franklin, letter to Collinson, 1753

(23Feb10)  Rumor: Nov. 1st: National Debt is really closer to $63T (NY Sen. Gillibrand.)  The $14+T is only "bonded" debt.  Plus, cost estimates for o'care are up to $3.2T+ in toto above the monies below.  That's 3 point two trillion!- (Mar11: $105B+ found hidden in o'scamcare!)
