But we do, you know, have to come up with the money to pay back the bonds that come due every year, and in a year when we are going to have big unplanned expenses and a big unexpected drop in revenue, that is going to be a headache.


Bingo. But you really aren't paying back anything, you are just rolling over debt at an interest rate you can't predict in the future. Like renewing a mortgage every five or so years, except you didn't pay off any of the principal, you just paid the interest.
