    The US dollar is losing value rapidly. Printing trillions of dollars so they can “borrow” it from the Fed is doing the trick. The dollar lost 50% of it’s value between 1975 and 1985 and has lost more than that in the last 12 years.

    Actually, t jacobs has a point. When the Democratic party took over congress in 2007, it allowed Bush to go back to his moderate tendecies. The deficit skyrocketed and has been over 1 trillion dollars for the last four years. Add on QE1, QE2 & QE3 and now the Treasury Secretary basically wants debt limit eliminated, there’s probably no ending to this cycle.

    One reason why this hasn’t dramatically affected the US economy is the European Union is worse off than the US. Hoping the EU will continue to be worse is probably not the best policy

    Wouldn’t the little bugger be better off getting another dollar from Dad to strengthen the piggy bank ?

    Think its bad now.
    Wait till the end of the year.
    Trillions get cuts, taxes get raised, Congress can’t act, nothing get done.
    Fiscal cliff a coming. Hang on to what you got.
    Enjoy this year the next one does not look so hot.

    It’s more of a fiscal ant hill than a fiscal cliff. The fear of the " cliff " is being drummed up by the media. The world, as we know it, isn’t going to end, if the Bush tax cuts go bye-bye.

    Oh, I know that.
    The sun will rise, the TIKI will be packed, all will be right with the world.
    But I still remember Ball of Confusion by The Temptations
    “Politicians say more Taxes will solve everything.
    And the band played on.
    So, round and around and around we go.
    Where the worlds headed, nobody knows”

    1970 was a good year.
    Song still rings true today.

    Oh and dont forget the cuts to the military, public services funding, special need groups funding all get the cuts too.
    Bush Tax cuts are only one part that everyone is hanging onto.
    There are more.
