Do you realize that on this day 203 years ago, when the United States Treasury was established, that it warehoused more money than it does today?
I can't find a source that provides the exact amount that went into our national coffers on that day but if it was more than a buck, it was at least two dollars more than is there today.
As of this morning, the Treasury vaults were empty except for an IOU reading $16,000,260,044,849.99.
It took a lot of work, and a lot of foolish, self-interested, uncaring presidents to get us from 1789 to today.
And we have only ourselves to blame for having put them in charge of the place.
