    Might as well, the US has given up paying their debt.

    Couldn’t be a Democrat is in the White House, actually elected by American Voters as opposed to be appointed?

    All the Western nations, from Day One of elected officials voting to spend borrowed money, based on promises of repayment by our children and grandchildren, without their consent, have BUILT THIS COLOSSES OF DEBT, and
    either each nation awakes to reality and votes to stop government spending money that exceeds tax revenues, or ALL will fall together, into bankruptcy.
    Credit is a Fatal Drug.

    The issue is everybody wants services that helps them, but nobody wants to pay for services that helps someone else. It’s all part of the “I want mine, but $%^^& the rest of you” mentality that’s all too pervasive.

    Years ago there was a school district in Wisconsin that had to end the school year several weeks early due to budget problems. The town’s residents had soundly voted down an earlier tax referendum to make up for the funding short fall and keep the schools open. I remember seeing video of town hall meeting, where an older woman was complaining that she shouldn’t have to pay for school funding because she didn’t have immediate family in school. Did she think that she was specially entitled to the Medicare, Medicaid, and various senior citizen programs that are funded by tax payers who have no relation to her?

    Bin Laden’s goal was to divide the American people, weaken our resolve to defend ourselves and ultimately bankrupt the American economy. The division is in full swing, there is an isolationist ideology growing in our country and the economy (deficit spending and economic growth) is in the toilet. We are sabotaging our children’s future with the debt burden we are leaving them. If we don’t come together and resolve our problems, economic and political we will be playing right into the hands of the extremists.

    Remember the cots in the Senate? Also
    Bin-Ladens doing? Remember the DNC
    convention in 68? Bin Laden? How about
    the election in 2000, Florida to be precise?
    Nope, neither. That divide you are talking
    about has been going on since day one of
    the Republic, and all calls to “unity” are
    a) fruitless and b) might even further the
    divide, because they usually come from
    people who try to sell you unhealthy ideas
    and politics. I don’t want to break Godwin’s
    law, or sound like Glen Beck, but Hitler also
    talked a lot about unity…

    Speaking as an outside looking in……It would seem that the US has been divided for a long time. The schism comes from within. If there had never been a Bin Laden, the blame would be put somewhere elsse. All countries of the world should learn to live within there own means and find a level thet suits them. My country (the UK) has nowhere near the industry it once had and still we lend money overseas. Time to stop, I think. If something’s going to fail, then it’s not doing things properly.

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed confessed to being responsible for all that, including Senators having to sleep on cots.


    He was on the grassy knoll in Dallas. He was responsible for the USS Maine.


    And not just US atrocities, he was responsible for those Whitechapel murders, finally solving that old British murder case. Not to mention that terrible arson that occurred during an Imperial Concert in Rome. And he confessed, so we know he’s definitely, irrefutably guilty of all those heinous crimes: It says so in the New York Times.

    That was Nixon, 1971. Before, all international debt was in 24K Gold. Of course, from ‘45 until ’71, most people used the US$, worth about 1 gm of 24K Gold, and safe in Ft Knox, so no transportation or storage charges.


    The US promised that $1 would ALWAYS be worth 1 gm of gold (actually, 1/35 oz ≈ 1 gm). Then Nixon said, ’No, the US$ is just a piece of paper, and the US will NOT pay its legal international debts in Gold, and anyone who doesn’t like it can see what the US did to Hiroshima and Nagasaki when they made trouble for the US.’


    It was the largest international default of sovereign debt in history, and nothing happened. Everyone pretended the US$ was still a valid currency, and a debt of 1,000 kg of gold could be paid with pieces of US paper, printed at will by the US mint with no backing.

    Well the for SURE don’t matter to Obama and the Dems. They are almost three times higher then at the end of GW’s second term. Let alone his first when we had much lower unemployment (remember the “jobless” recovery) as well as lower gas and food prices. But then the dems just hate poor people.
