I find it amazing that you guys think America is infallible - we went off the gold standard to begin with b/c we were creating more currency and debt than we had gold reserves.
You guys do realize that some of the credit ratings agencies had lowered the U.S.'s credit rating, and that Holder threatened to sue them back into line?? The U.S. has spent and printed its way on to quicksand - yet most of you seem to think everything America does is golden (except the currency - that, of course, is paper, ink, and digits in a computer).
Instead of getting your house in order, you all want hair of the dog - akin to drug addiction. It's mind boggling.
