    But you might want to get rid of that hair shirt...:devil:

    I'm baffled by why anyone thinks that the financially privileged parking more money in offshore hoards would be good for the economy. It really doesn't even do much for the hoarders, except--I...

    And the inevitable response to that was "In your guts, you know he's nuts!"
