Not this time, Gene.  I only said "seem to say" out of decorum.  That's what 
you've repeatedly said.  To wit:  Whenever anyone points out that the "trust 
fund" had no money in it, you follow with the saw that it doesn't matter if 
there's no money in it, the money is de facto there until the US goes bankrupt.

The 'trust fund' is an IOU the government has written to itself.  It can 
resolve it, if it chooses, by crumpling it up and throwing it away ... exactly as 
you could do if you found an IOU in your pocket written by yourself to 
yourself.  A change in political climate might produce just those results.
