“Unfunded Liability” -- another good band name.

Hai, Sven!

“Unfunded Liability” — another good band name.

While it’s a bit long, I prefer Ninety-Seven Percent of Congress’ Heads on Pikes. 👿

Yeah, and it’s got that possessive apostrophe after an “S” which is always difficult to remember. Could be a good album title though.

If you’ve ever read John Sandford, then you know what the perfect band name is: “That F*ckin’ Flowers.”

Happy Independence Day, Gerbil Nation!
Or Brexit 1776, if you prefer.
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Unfunded liability -- a nice way of saying your balance sheet doesn’t.

BTW, the CalSTRS unfunded liability is $97 billion. When you add in CalPERS, the unfunded liability of just those two retirement systems is over $210 billion, or about 10% of the state GDP. The budget for the State of California is only $125 billion.

So when I overcharge my credit card, I wasn’t like being stupid, I was just engaging in “unfunded liabilitieness.”

Every time I type that word, it comes out “liabilitities” -- I don’t know why.
