Hi Gary,

Have you read a story by Sholom-Aleichem called "If I were Rothchild?" Please do. Your post sounds just like it.

The only difference is, the poor Jew in the story says, "They territory and territory, until war starts. What are they territorying about? Here's a million for you, and a million for you. And let there be quiet!"

And you say, "Here's 50 bucks for you and 50 bucks for you. And let there be quiet!"

Sorry, nice advice, but useless. There won't be quiet. It's human nature.
