The war on debt

History may tell you that the Allies won World War II, in fact, it was the U.S. that really did the winning. We tipped the balance in the European theater and pretty much ran the show in the Pacific theater, too. But the government’s effort was funded by American citizens.

Well the time has come to pay the piper, and what better a time than during a global financial crisis (remember, Bernake said the recession is over)? Six states are suing the federal government for over $16 billion for unclaimed war bonds.

But if we claim the war bonds now, doesn’t that mean that the Nazis win?
