K...I may be very simple-minded, not to mention REALLY weary of all this TARP haggling going on in the news, but the simple fact is, the US. Census (according to www.census.gov) is currently: 305,735,646 people
Um...can't the government just send each man/woman/child who is part of that census like a mil or so each (way less than the BILLIONS they're arguing over to bail out companies not even worth what they are asking for, to be bailed out!) and this economic crisis would be over and we all could get on with life and what we each do???
