Government can't pay debt without income
When watching all the accusations directed to the government for not paying the national debt, I wonder how many of the objectors opt for every tax deduction they can find, and vote down any proposal that requires them to pay a tax? No one can pay bills without income. The federal and state governments need our tax money to pay theirs as they do not have a day job. Seems some citizens forget that.

Refuge Notebook: Bear-baiting regulations on the on the Last Frontier
The famous American author, Napoleon Hill, once said, "Nature cannot be tricked or cheated. She will give up to you the object of your struggles only after you have paid her price." Who knows this better than an outdoorsman? Whether you hunt, fish, hike, camp or photograph there is an appreciation for what surrounds you.
