    I'll be happy to take delivery of all your excess worthless federal reserve notes. I'll even give you a cookie to make it worth your time.

    Right, the fucking Clintons are all over fucking everything in the universe because they are so fucking omnipotent and altruistic as all fuck.

    Likely the Cubans considered Hilfuck a mob moll whose husband unleashed the banks to destroy the world - because she is. Sensible folks those Cubans.

    Mumps vacine? Hilary gave hand jobs to the PIs when she was getting her JD. Mars exploration? NASA is on the phone every other day asking her opinion of experimental regimes they're planning. Better pizza? Bill manages quality control of slice shops all over NYC, storming in, hugging everyone and wolfing down 23 slices before the owners know what hit them.

    Yeah, heroes of everything and everyone forever.

    PLEASE, someone, relieve us of the Clintfucks!

    The lesson should be clear- a currency crisis can happen anywhere
    The only safe currency is gold.

    Dan's penis is very small

    Not according to your daughter.

    Anyone else notice that the only thing CIC is obsessed about more than my car is my penis?

    I used to be merely boring and beneath notice.

    Now that I have improved myself, I am obnoxious, pedantic and superciliously snotty.

    "Submitted by Simon Black via Sovereign Man blog,

    Exactly 199 years ago, in 1815, a “temporary” committee was established in the US Senate called the Committee on Finance and Uniform National Currency.

    It was set up to address economic issues and the debt accrued by the US government after the War of 1812.

    Of course, because there’s nothing more permanent than a temporary government measure, the committee became a permanent one after just one year.

    It soon expanded its role from raising tariffs to having influence over taxation, banking, currency, and appropriations.

    In subsequent wars, notably the American Civil War, the Committee was quick to use its powers and introduced the union’s first income tax. They also detached the dollar from gold to help fund the war.

    This was all an indication of things to come.

    Over the subsequent decades there was a sustained push to finally establish the country’s central bank that will control money and credit, as well as institute a permanent income tax to feed the expanding aspirations of government.

    They succeeded in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Act was passed and the 16th Amendment ratified, binding the country in the shackles of central banking and taxation of income.

    Over the century that followed, the US has gone from being the biggest creditor in the world to its biggest debtor.

    Decades of expanding government programs, waste, endless and costly wars, etc. have racked up such an enormous pile of debt that it has become almost impossible to pay it down.

    A lot of folks don’t realize that, since the end of World War II, the US government’s total tax revenue has been almost constant at roughly 17% of GDP.

    In other words, even though the actual tax rates themselves rise and fall, the government’s ‘slice’ of the economic pie is almost always the same - 17%.

    I’ve worked out a mathematical model which shows that, even with absurd assumptions (7%+ GDP growth for years at a time, low interest rates, etc.), it is simply not feasible for the US government to ‘grow’ its way out.

    Default has become the only option. And that could mean a number of things.

    They could default on their creditors (other governments like China who loaned money to the US government). But this would spark a global financial and banking crisis.

    They could default on the Federal Reserve, which owns trillions of dollars of US debt. But this would create an epic currency crisis for the US dollar.

    They could also default on their obligations to their citizens—primarily to future beneficiaries of Social Security (who collectively own trillions of dollars of US debt).

    Or they could choose to default on their obligations to every human being alive who holds US dollars… and engineer rampant inflation.
    None of these is a good option. And simply put, the US government has reached a point of no return."

    Insurance company USAA here in San Antonio uses a number of H-1B's. Numerous Indian restaurants near the company headquarters.

    Hey USAA, how about hiring some veterans?

    socal2 says

    Under any possible examination, America's military actions since 9/11 have been more restrained with the least amount of civilian deaths and abuses than any war in our history.

    Then why did you get such an erection about : "Over 3,500 terrorists SUSPECTS (and their families and innocent neighbors) have been incinerated under Obama's drone program."?

    or

    "I think most honest thinkers have to admit that incinerating thousands of SUSPECTED terrorists (and any nearby civilians) with drone strikes is a much bigger moral quandary than water boarding or forcing top Jihadis into cold rooms or stress positions."?

    Clearly, nuance is not your strong suit. Rather, blanket bias suits you.

    I agree with your conclusion, but not your reasoning. Counting likes and dislikes is meaningless because fanboys will like every post in their clique and dislike every post by someone in an opposing clique.

    This is how they do it on Miss Universe.

    I win!

    HEY YOU says

    When will Bush & Republicans apologize for unfunded wars,death of servicemen,innocent brown people & torture? I forgot,they don't want to admit to crimes against humanity.

    That shit is thoroughly played out. Stop with that bullshit please!
    Obama has been a bigger war mongerer and war criminal indiscriminately bombing who ever pleases with drone strikes. And you guys have yet to direct any fake outrage toward him for it. Other than Dan, but he's just an agitated nutcase who isn't sure what stands for or doesn't.
