"Fiat money is backed by men with guns; Bitcoin is not. So why should this thing have any value?"--Uber statist economist Paul Krugman.
We have done more than some, certainly not as much as others. Never enough.We always help out with the yearly carnival at the Veterans Hospital. We belong to Patriot Guard Riders, who support both veterans and active service people. And, even though I don't think of it as any sacrifice but rather a labor of love, we annoy people no end asking for contributions to Larry Binger, a disabled Navy Vet in Newark who participates in the National Veterans Wheelchair Games every year. I consider him a friend (he is also a member of Patriot Guard), so that probably doesn't count as a commitment. It's personal with me. Such a guy.I have a friend who is a Viet Nam Vet who is nearing the end of his time with GM, and is working with someone else on a grant to work with homeless vets. He said he couldn't believe how many there are, and I think he is thinking in his mind that it very easily could have been him.I need to do more. Help on the homefront for the families left behind to cope is high on my list.It is never enough.
Pay my taxes?
