  Civil Liberties for Tax Refunds, Takers ? :P

  A COO I know is actually enthused, all he can say is
   "Do you know how much money that means to me ?!"


  The Myopia of the Rich, eh ? 

  He also spouted the philosophy, one day:

  and the rest of you can borrow it.... it will stimulate the economy."

  A verbatim quote. ( He is GOP, FWIW. )
