    is human history, now.

    Maybe something needs to be done about US foreign policy by now? Maybe? Barack?

  1. We’re number 1 in fucking history!  Now that is something aint it.   That’s all right, they’re decimating the dollar now so the debt can be paid back quicker.  Or maybe not, are they even worried about debt?

    puts it extremely well here:


    It’s just audio, with some still pictures that are basically meaningless, but he is ranting here about the dollar, and his point is this:

    Why would ANYBODY buy American debt right now?   Why would anyone want a 30 year return on a loan that is almost zero?    You’d have to be crazy to buy American debt right now, there’s absolutely nothing in it for anybody.

    He’s been right so far, about all this stuff.
