I agree, but supper was calling. :-) There could scarcely be a better time to eliminate the unnecessary hocus pocus step involving the public bond auction, along with the resulting savings from eliminating the bond interest, than when the Federal Reserve interest rate is at or near the zero bound. The current situation presents an auspicious conjunction of circumstances favoring such a move, if only we had a president who did not worship the ground upon which the wealthiest bankers walk.


As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
