    ... might be one of the dumber ways to make debt disappear, I agree. But the point is, we could do it, and if we did, the debt would be gone overnight. One can imagine drastic circumstances under which it would be unwise not to do it.  But we can't just "print" overnight a whole generation's worth or more of poor education, lack of health care, built infrastructure, and R&D. These are real things that take their own time to come into being. Along with a healthy natural environment, they are also the actual sources of our nation's wealth, and failure to invest in them will definitely devastate our economy.

      Now I see your point.  My apologies.  While my argument is still valid, it is entirely irrelevant to your point.

      I concede.  Want to grab a cup of coffee?  I need some.  Stupid Lent ;p
