    Locally on the news a man wrote in, suggesting that the government give each US citizen $1,000,000.00 instead of bailing out the stockmarket for $7 billion. Would you support this idea? And why?

    What good would a million dollars do anyone if the economy collapses & the US dollar is worthless?

    Well other than the hyperinflation and the fact that it would cost more than $700 billion, sounds great.

    Perhaps you should invest some money in your critical thinking/math skills.

    :rofl: ROTFLMAO :lmao: I think that is the most stupid and ludicrous idea I have heard yet. Do you have any idea what the US population is? Giving each and every legal citizen $1,000,000.00 sounds like the plot of a bad B movie from the 60's. That wouldn't help the economy or the financial institutions it would bankrupt it.
