Does Money Grow On Trees?

NEVER in American history has our government run anything close to a $2 trillion dollar collective deficit....

NEVER has so many kids 18-24 been unable to find a job.....

Yet depsite the fact that we American sheep can't generate enough revenues to support our govnernment or find jobs for our kids....or 30 million other un/underemployed Americans..

Politicians, Bankers, and Wall Street Funded Executives seem to be able to borrow as much money as they want to pay themselves although arguably their employers are insolvent.

If in fact money does grow on trees....why in the heck isn't EVERY single American....solvent or insolvent....allowed to have their own money tree. 

Oh I forgot....sheep don't speak.......especially when they are lubricated by the ticker.

Fruits and nuts grow on trees. Fruit or nuts may be sold for currently used money. They are exchangeable goods. Therefore money grows on trees.

However, it takes two things to make those fruits and nuts valuable. First, ownership of the trees (private property) and second, labor to bring them to market and exchange them.

The money you are talking about here has no basis. It is created out of thin air and has no true asset backing. That's the difference in a nutshell. That's why these bailouts will bear no true fruit.

Most Americans have “come to believe that the political system is broken, that most politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has the answers,” observes Scott Rasmussen. Forty-one percent (41%) of voters say that a group of people randomly selected from the phone book would do a better job than the current Congress.

You mean pushing services that create no absolute value, short or long term, will not bear fruit?  Lies....thats sarcasm by the way.  Without the typical wall street ripping off main street argument, it comes down to people being informed of what is going on in the realm of finance, and that it includes whats in their pockets and whats potentially being kept from entering their pockets.  

Knowledge and the promotion of constantly being on top of the people that truncate the expansion of wealth is necessary.  Unfortunately the knowledge usually leads to anger then rebellion.  Something we cannot afford right now.  The Solution, work hard, pay your accountant for good tax avoidance strategies and sit long and hard on how to create blue oceans.  Sorry that sounded like a bad infomercial

Carry on sheep, and feel the Government's (backdoor) love.

No, money does not grow on trees... it's grows in your wallet.

Money (=debt) grows in Fed's computer and propagates to big banks.

Just as the quarterly statemenst sent by Bernie Madoff to his clients, everthing looks good until people start realizing we now have a currency crisis (here goes the Euro) and running for safe havens.
