A few generations ago, people would buy “War Bonds” from Uncle Sam, to finance WWII.
Now we are faced with needing to pony up cash to keep small businesses afloat and help the unemployed until the Covid thing is gone or under control, one way or another.
It makes me wonder why they don’t issue some “Virus Bonds” to finance it. Maybe instead of matchbooks, give people “BUY VIRUS BONDS” masks, maybe with a picture of Uncle Sam wearing one. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?
