I was reading an article in the paper about how the gub'ment is trying to find new ways for people to save.
If the sleazy banks that we bailed out aren't going to give us any interest because the FDIC raised bank fees, then it's all for naught. Damn CD's are only paying about 1-2%. It's all a joke anyway, when the banks turn right around and raise fees so they're still raking in billions and we're still being screwed up the ass sans Astroglide.
One of the things they're talking about is offering people the opportunity to receive their income tax refund in the form of government bonds. No way in hell. The government is like the lottery these days. If you win anything, take the money in full because you never know when they're going to go belly up.
