Apple's biggest growth happened within the last 3 years. Coincidentally the US took its biggest nose dive in the same time frame.

When Apple can grow this big and this fast in a bad economy you know they're doing something extremely right.

When a government gets this big and accrues this much debt in such a short amount of time you know its doing something extremely wrong.
