  • No that does not surprise me - you can't solve a debt crisis with more debt - it doesn't work - DUH (not winning)

  • What?! When did that happen? How did that happen? I thought all we had to do was print money.

    For the record I have been bitching about it for a couple of decades now. At this point it doesn't matter who caused it..what matters is who is going to have the BALLS to stand up to the establishment and lead a fiscally conservative revolt.

  • Not surprised at all... It is really disgusting that our own government is throwing us all under the bus!

  • I bet I know who will be surprised by it. Anyone know how to get that link to PBO? He'll definitely be surprised.

  • That is the progressive plan, overload and collapse the system. Then rebuild it under a socialist system.

  • What does that even mean? I think it's a phrase thats pretty easy to throw out in an effort to insight fear but I can't imagine how things have changes so dramatically in the last two years that we're near complete ruin.

    This shit doesn't pop up over night and i don't recall anyone crying about it during the Bush presidency.

    I have to say, you must not have a keen sense of the obvious.

  • Really sad,

  • Now that everything looks (and may be) hopeless, everyone who has been pushing us toward socialism and one world government can try to convince us all that it is our only chance.
