Something from Detroit:
This is the Edsel, named after one of the Ford family members that died

From the authors of the The American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009:
"Since 2001, as worker productivity
went up, 96% of the income growth in this country went to
the wealthiest 10% of society. While they were benefiting
from record high worker productivity, the remaining 90% of
Americans were struggling to sustain their standard of
living. They sustained it [the standard of living] by
borrowing ... and borrowing ... and borrowing, and when they
couldn't borrow anymore, the bottom fell out." i.e.
over the last 8 years of Republican administration the
average American has lost average income (the 90%) each year
while taxes for the rich have declined. The great
Supply Side Economics BS that reduced taxes increase jobs is
belied by this statistic:

innocent children, have had their futures stolen by Wall Street. My
generation can not pay back this debt. It will be left to my children and
grandchildren. I am honestly concerned whether my grandchildren will have a
better quality of life than mine. Stealing from a baby is outrageous.
"...The American national debt is an obligation to pay U.S. dollars:
Each debt certificate obligates the Treasury to pay the holder so many U.S.
dollars on a prescribed date. But the U.S. government is the source of these
dollars. It prints them!..." and thus we need not fear is someone else is
willing to give us their money for these IOUs.
