Hahaha, wow Ellen, you just surpassed your last letter. Very bizarre. Yet comical.

I'm with you Mr. Trimpy. Jogging along Big Four is a great experience. It's quiet and charming. To come across someone's crap is infuriating. Time to set up cameras.

Well written, Mr. Honhart. Anyone who doubts the serious nature of our spending problem MUST study the history of Germany in the years which followed World War I. There are far too many people who do not believe that Germany's fate will repeat itself, only this time with the U.S.A. So before anyone disagrees, dig out your history books, study Germany's problems from 1919 into the early 1930's and tell me if that sounds good to you.

Or just look at Greece for a more recent example. There are so many parallels with Greece and the model that the US is moving toward without the effects of a post World War loss on the economy.

Mr. Honhart – You really nailed it with this letter. I agree with Heydrick and MTO.

Add me to the list of those who wholeheartedly agree with Mr H. I did my own calculations and figure that our $17T debt would make a stack of $1 bills that would reach the moon, and another stack, and another stack and another stack, and a fifth stack that would make it 2/3rds of the way to the moon. The only thing I'd add to his letter is to remember our debt in the 2016 election as well. I note the absence of finger pointing at just one political party. Good! Both are guilty of "kicking the can down the road", anything to retain their positions of power and stay in office.

Mr T, I once followed a car with a mattress set strapped to the top, up Morrison Run Road. They stopped and were going to dump their old set, but moved on when I stopped near them. Every time the stopped, I did too. I wasn't about to let them dump it while I was there. I recorded their license number. They ultimately gave up, but probably came back later or went elsewhere. Selfish pigs! If I ever saw someone actually dump trash, I'd follow them and find out where they live, then I'd surreptitiously fill their yard with roadside debris.
