    The Mother of All Market Sell Offs?

    Boehner doesn't represent his party or is that a sufficient percentage only?

    Perhaps those that recognize the ongoing financial recklessness for what it is are stonewalling what clearly is both a piecemeal and lame approach to the country's financial woes. If there is indeed a solution, it will have to be one comprised of deep, deep cuts in spending and taxation, one that eliminates entire federal departments—Education, Energy, HUD while curtailing our swashbuckling foreign policy to boot. Anything else is merely window dressing. As a side show, our reliance on the fraud money system would be reduced and that might be a boon to those that want to see it ended. I'm excited to see that just 'having a plan', regardless of it's legitimacy, is no longer as widely acceptable as it once was in the rubber stamping US CONgress, which has also been gleefully shredding all remaining vestiges of the Bill of Rights. Perhaps now we'll see a reversal of field there, too. Frankly speaking, I feel there are too many pretenders and traitors inside the beltway. The echoes of oaths offered to 'uphold and defend'...'all enemies foreign and domestic' have nearly faded away and it appears when that happens it is thought that they no longer exist.

    • If unemployment is the enemy and you're down to a few bullets, now's not the time to empty the remaining cartridges out of the rifle and show how you're a saver rather than a spender.

      • Re: Unemployment

        If we still used the measurement metrics employed in the 1960s, before government had the the need to condition perception by lying through it's teeth as it must desperately do now, unemployment sits at about 22%. (Inflation, too, is much higher than government would have you believe—ask any housewife that buys the groceries or pays the utilities, but I digress.) That's even with the extraordinary sums of money spent to give those removed from employment because the economic system is in it's death throes and it hasn't worked so well....just like it failed in the 30s.

        The purpose of unemployment compensation, like so many lingering aspects of the Roosevelt engineered overthrow of the American Republic, is to stifle revolt; hungry people are keen for retribution. As the value of the money and the system continue to implode (and there's no other possible outcome), fancy how that, too, will work out in the longer run.

        Is there really any value in deck chair rearrangement?

    • A conspiracy involves intelligence, an end game, and I haven't seen anything but the vaguest kind of steering at the top. The longer Congress stays out of town and gridlocked, the higher the dollar seems to go.

      Cutting off spending is like using leeches to clean the blood stream. It does nothing but kill the patient. It's something to consider.
