    It was a snark comment.

    Get a grip.

    Here are a couple of definitions of piker:

    1.    A gambler who makes only small bets.
    2.    A stingy or cautious person.

    He was "making fun" of the diarist for only allowing the Treasury to have a trillion dollar coin instead of giving it to everyone.

    In your zeal to "protect" your buddy, methinks thou hast set thine own self up for ridicule.

    oooooh, please don't throw me into that HR briar patch as well....

    There are only two types of Republicans: 1) racists; and 2) people who are willing to be associated with racists.

      He's someone that HR's any disagreement with "True Progressives". Snark is absolutely Not Allowed, because True Progressives.

      Tip to counteract the HR that's sure to come from that spineless gang.

        And yes, I do know the concept of the trillion dollar coin.
        I was merely expressing some incredulity at the 60 trillion dollar coin idea.

        I would never put ''piker'' or ''progressive'' in the same category of name-calling as ''GOP'' but I will take the non-factual barb in good spirit....I have thick skin.
