God is going to supply a million dollars, somebody is praying right now, right this second, you’re praying for a million dollars and God said, 'I have heard your prayer, I know your need, and I'm going to supply the need that you requested,' it's done, in Jesus' name.
Sure, Robertson was talking about his viewers, who may have already won one million dollars in the Pearly Gates Publishers Sweepstakes, but there's no reason we can't adopt this strategy to fix our deficits.
We just need the Treasury Department to hire some hedge fund managers. God sure seems to love answering their prayers.

Pardon me, but would you mind if I told you how they do scandals in Canada?
According to the experts, there's something un-Canadian about the design of the new $20 bill. No, it's not the visage of Queen Elizabeth, reminding everyone that even constitutional monarchies are built on a principle of inequality stemming from the fact that one British family is better and more worthy of privilege than any citizen of Canada, thanks to magical genes.
It's much worse than that: the maple leaf on the bill… is an immigrant.

Editor's Note: In the wake of controversy over The Atlantic's Church of Scientology advertorial, Comedy Central's Indecision is reviewing the guidelines that govern our content partnerships with faith-based groups (real and imaginary). However, that is going to take a while, so in the meantime, we'd like to share this important message.
Presbyterians are awesome. Their branch of Christianity traces its roots to Scotland, which is also awesome. Look at these fucking bagpipes:
So many awesome people are or were Presbyterians. John Wayne. Sally Ride. William Faulkner. Jimmy Stewart. Fred Rogers. That's right, Mr. Rogers was a Presbyterian. Won't you be my neighbor?
The Presbyterian Church in the United States has done a ton of awesome things. They have a Disaster Assistance organization that is currently helping Hurricane Sandy survivors rebuild. They have established several awesome colleges and universities, including Queens University of Charlotte, Maryville College and the Union Theological Seminary in New York City, which has a really awesome and pretty library.
Presbyterianism is also big in South Korea, for some reason (probably because Presbyterians are awesome). Let's watch that video again!
In conclusion, Presbyterians are awesome.
Checks may be made payable to Comedy Central's Indecision.

Few things have divided the nerdo-sphere and punditocracy as much as the proposal to dodge the debt ceiling by minting a trillion-dollar platinum coin and depositing it with the Federal Reserve.
As we make our arguments, it'd be nice if we didn't all join Fox News in beclowning ourselves in the process. Hence this guide.
