    I'm havin' a bad evening on the net, I am sick of foul mouthed liberals,spammers and now Ifind smiling Timmy Giethner saying : "The treasurey would encourage the general public to donate to the treasurey ( here's the address and who to write the check too) to make up for the rampant bailouts.[own2][own2]

    Worried about U.S. debt? Send your donation here

    <!-- end .byline --> WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Not sure what to give Uncle Sam this Christmas? How about a nice, fat check to help whittle away at the $7.6 trillion national debt?
    The U.S. Treasury Department accepts gifts, payable to the Bureau of the Public Debt. Just mail them to the attention of Department G, Post Office Box 2188, Parkersburg, West Virginia, 26106-2188. Make a note in the memo section that it is a gift to reduce the debt held by the public.
    Yes, really.
    It's all on the Treasury's website, at the end of the list of frequently asked questions. http://www.treasurydirect.gov/govt/resources/faq/faq_publicdebt.htm
    Which raises a few more questions. Do people really send in checks? How much and what reasons do they give for voluntarily paying more than just their taxes? And why are the checks directed to a post office box in West Virginia?
    According to Treasury spokesman Kim Treat, people do send checks. In the last fiscal year they added up to a little over $3 million, which was the highest total since at least 1996.
    Some include notes. Common reasons for donating include a sense of patriotism and immigrants expressing their thanks to the United States for giving them an opportunity, he said.


    As I and most of america soundly informed our bus drivers up front not to pass all this bailout stuff.I don'tfeel at all responsiblefor it.
    think they accept (toxic) metals? specifically lead and copper???

    What a joke, they rape my paycheck every week, they rape me at the gas pumps, they rape me when I invest money. They can pound sand if they think I am giving them one penny without being forced too.

    There has been, since way before I was born (quite a while now since that happened), a branch of the the treasury that accepts donations, both altruistic and those motivated by a twinge of conscience. Nothing new. I'd be curious to know what the take has averaged over time, see if it aligns with the economy. But not curious enough to look it up.

    I feel the same toward burn victims:
    I am not a religious person but:
    "Dear God please give this woman and her family the strength to make it through her days with a little less suffering."
