Seven. Hundred. Billion.

Remenber that number.

Every time anybody ever tries to preach the wisdom of the unfettered market to you.

Every time anybody starts going on about the "dead hand of government."

Every time you feel a bit uncomfortable around someone displaying ostentatious wealth, and think "maybe if I had worked harder."

Every time someone says "if you're so smart, why aren't you rich?"

Every time you crack open a business page.

Every time Jim Kramer walks in public and doesn't get a pie in the face.

Every time you look at an "R" beside a name.

Every time you see a pledge for donations on TV, because the American government cried poverty.

Remember that the Federal Government is going to use seven hundred billion of YOUR dollars to rescue all those financial wizards, and not the people who got thrown out of their houses because they were hoodwinked by these guys and their agents.

And in case you aren't quite clear on what that number is, it's $700,000,000,000. And that's not a misprint.
