There's licenses for everything nowadays, from marriage, to adding a bathroom in YOUR house. Speeding tickets and speed limits make us "criminals" for going 66 in a 65 zone, even if nobody else is on the road. Motorcyclists and bicyclists get tickets and fines for not wearing a helmet, and then there's seatbelt laws...

Fifty-five million people died.
It was called World War II.

For those of you who may be irony-challenged on this one, the bank is full of money that is supposedly valuable, but anyone who sits and thinks about it realizes that our fiat currency is absolutely worthless in the grand scheme of things. If you held $100 trillion in federal reserve notes, and everyone else out there said "eh, I'm not really interested in buying those things", you are left with piles of paper that are just as valuable as blank injket printer sitting on the shelf at your local Office Max. Actually, probably less valuable, because they're all marked up and you can't print anything on them.

Nobody finds it strange that the federal government can pass multi-trillion dollar spending packages without having the money to back them up? How do you think they get the money to pay for those things? I'll give you one hint:
