Actually makes you think.

Of course McTalking-Points et al will spin this into something like, "Glenn Beck and Pravda think we are Marxists, so therefore Glenn Beck is a Marxist." Or some such thing just as intelligent.

Funny, I would have thought McTalking-points and FTL would have had a time with this...

I guess it is exposing their plans too much.

I would call this a rant at best and stupid at worst, but this little extract is interesting and something that China has started to view seriously:

His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

You cannot print money to get you out of a recession can you?

Well if the only people who are buying Government Bonds is the US Government it may come crashing down sooner than we think.
