    I made the statement that America has gotten fat. It has. I haven't, and maybe you haven't, but our obesity rates are through the roof, and we've become collectively lazy and complacent. I have no need to defend myself from anyone. Look up the stats.

    You and me both, but it is coming as it seems as long as the government can print money, the dollar will still be worth something.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Every single instance of hyperinflation that has ever existed happend in a country which had it's production shut down. Think about it, inflation is caused not by too much money (have you ever had "too much money"?), but by a lack of sufficient goods to meet demand. Our production of goods and services is increasing, not decreasing.

    Seriously, how can you compare Zimbabwe to the US?
    I'm not, and I sincerely hope it's never possible to do so.

    Then it becomes a question of how many more dollars might be required to buy that something. We've learned over time that price controls don't work for long either - it causes black markets to thrive, and that can be a problem. The book "One Second After" spells out what can happen in that scenario. For one thing, lawlessness increases as people become desperate!

    That's true. Look at New York and cigarettes. The cigarette black market is flourishing, cracking down on the black market let to the death of seller and the rest is history so to speak. But government knows best, just ask them and they will tell you so.

    The debt means nothing until it does, hopefully I won't be around to live those seconds after.

    We're completely screwed... not a matter of 'if', but when.

    Can't create "money" out of thin air forever; can't run trade deficits forever, i.e. being subsidized by the rest of the world as they trade their goods for our paper; can't continue to increase the size and scope of government year after year, i.e. you can only travel down the road to total government for so long before you eventually arrive there; cities and municipalities will be going insolvent in about 10 years, i.e. they will no longer be able to meet their pension obligations and mandates; on and on...

    The writing is on the wall - however, if ignorance is bliss, then it is a Godsend that Amerikans have been made completely ignorant by the indoctrination they received in the government school they attended.

    It will turn into an post zombie apocalypse society where we have to eat each other too survive. I also believe that aliens will come, kill all the zombies and then populate the earth.

    I think the future will be incredibly bright due to the hard work and foresight of the Obama administration laying a solid foundation for progress with so many new jobs, the unleashing of the American entrepreneurial spirit, healthcare for all and a country that no longer accepts torture, homophobia, police brutality, white privilege and the degrading incessant war on women.
