    No need for gloom and gloom everywhere, It seems the President intends to help bail out the Greeks.

    After a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Barrack Obama said, regarding Greece, ”we have pledged to cooperate fully in working through these issues, both on a bilateral basis but also through international and financial institutions like the IMF.”

    I doubt Merkel shares those feelings, having seen the situation close-up.

All you are doing is romanticizing the "good ole days", which is funny considering you weren't around for them
    What FDR did then was the groundwork for the recession, and potential Depression, we're in now.

    It started the entitlement craze, and the liberal bastardization of the public to get votes.

    What a COS,

    Franklin D. Roosevelt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt ( /ˈroʊzəvəlt/ roh-zə-vəlt; January 30, 1882 – April 12, 1945) also known by his initials, FDR, was the 32nd President of the United States (1933–1945) and a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the United States during a time of worldwide economic crisis and world war. The only American president elected to more than two terms, he facilitated a durable coalition that realigned American politics for decades. FDR defeated incumbent Republican Herbert Hoover in November 1932, at the depths of the Great Depression. FDR's persistent optimism and activism contributed to a renewal of the national spirit.[2] He worked closely with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin in leading the Allies against Germany and Japan in World War II, but died just as victory was in sight.

    In his "first hundred days" in office, which began March 4, 1933, and beyond Roosevelt spearheaded major legislation and issued a profusion of executive orders that instituted the New Deal—a variety of programs designed to produce relief (government jobs for the unemployed), recovery (economic growth), and reform (through regulation of Wall Street, banks and transportation). The economy improved rapidly from 1933 to 1937, but then relapsed into a deep recession. The bipartisan Conservative Coalition that formed in 1937 prevented his packing the Supreme Court or passing any considerable legislation; it abolished many of the relief programs when unemployment diminished during World War II. Most of the regulations on business were ended about 1975–85, except for the regulation of Wall Street by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which still exists. Along with several smaller programs, major surviving programs include the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which was created in 1933, and Social Security, which Congress passed in 1935.
    The problems we are experiencing in America are caused by Wall Street greed and the outsourcing of American jobs, You can't bring 3.5 billion plus low paid workers into the labor force and anticipate that all will be well, This recession/depression can be directly attributed to Wall Street and the new global economy.

    The worst is yet to come
