OK, time to rape Uncle Sam. The sooner we get the debt to a tipping point, the sooner we can start making things right. So I am starting a thread about how to get and maximize handouts from the federal government of the United States of America. Other countries feel free to start your own. There is a limit for this thread. Some ideas will require money (like buying certain kinds of farmland). That's OK (IMO). But running a bank worth trillions of dollars isn't in scope. Nor is being one of the top ten automakers. Or running a union that works there. We're talking real ideas to suck money out of the federal government. Something that some (or preferably most) of us can do. #1: Vote Democrat! Republicans are tighter with the purse strings than democrats.
