“Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.” John Maynard Keynes
The greed and self centeredness of the people of this country from the president down to the poor is destroying our country.
“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
― Stephen R. Covey
This statement is ludicrous, who the hell is going to pay our debt back, let alone stop the borrowing. Let me tell you, nobody, we are totally dependent on government, our will to succeed as a nation is over. We are in decline more so than ever before. All the countries are taking us to task. Take Russia, that tells Obama what to do, and others, which are many, which have no concern of a US interruption of their growing terrorist buildup.You've basically got it made. Realise where you're well off. Most of the world eats three square of dust and insects.
This country has lost it's economic power but also it's position in the world. We are considered just another country trying to survive.
Remember the poster "We Can Do It" that was when we were a country that pulled together, not anymore. This country will never be like those days of "We Can Do It." Those days are over.

Liberals - Punish the Successful, Reward the Unsuccessful
Liberals - Tax, Borrow, Spend, and Give Free Stuff
Obama's legacy - National Debt / Credit Downgrade / Obamacare Failure / Economic Failure / Foreign Policy Failure / Liar of the Year Award / The Rise of ISIS
I see the battle between management and labor has been won by management. That means the Corporations will only pay the least possible amount to Labor. The Corporatocracy will continue to buy our politicians until we are busted and then they will take the money and run. Corporate allegiance is to the strong currency. It is International business, not American business. We're screwed, and that doesn't even touch on Global Warming. Very pessimistic. Guess who will wind up paying for all the USA indebtedness?
The writing is on the wall.
