Strange stuff but he is just a puppet of the banksters. Who cares what sensational crap he talks up. The most important news comes from japan!!! With radioactive STRONTIUM being found more than 20 miles from Fukushima AND NOW reactor 1 pressure is building up!


To me that is news!!! It means all those people in about 5 prefectures will never be able to return! Milliions of people maybe forced to live in empty Chinese ghost towns!

Totally agree, as liar in chief you just need to promise that the deficit/debt problem will be in control by the time you have (quietly) stepped out of office.

This holds not only in US, but also PIIGS+Japan.

There are no longer developed and emerging economies.  Now we have submerging and emerged.

I wonder if anyone actually believes what he says.  I'm going to conduct an informal poll later today and tomorrow and ask what people think of his plan.

I want to get a handle on how deep the public has their heads buried in the dogshit.

If they actually buy what he's shoveling, he should actually put forth a plan that provides zillion dollar surpluses and new cars and homes for everyone by 2032.

My anecdotal evidence is that public ignorance on budget matters is vast. I asked CFOs of two major companies over the weekend what they thought of the Fed's quantitative easing. Neither had ever heard the term; had no idea what it mean. I'd guess not one person in 100 knows the meaning of fiat currency, and not one in a thousand knows such currencies have finite lifespans. Very scary.

Yes thats the real news going on in Japan, but detrimental to world banksters stocks so that story is 'Cntrl alt del' since it happened.

its obamaobiden new math - we have to spend $ to get out of debt.  the new cost cutting is not spending as much.

It's actually the new Keynesian math....you have to borrow 10 % of GDP in order to funnel enough free money to the Oligarchs to create the illusion of 1% GDP growth.  It's a great business model....borrow 10, make 1......borrow 10, make 1.

T.E.I.N. everyone!

This is the extent of the left's willingness to cut.  Wisconsin made it plain that lawlessness will be quickly applied by the public employee unions and the rest of the dependency classes in the event of any attempted deep cuts.  The Repubs and Dems don't want to be the ones to cut because they know what'll happen when the deficit is slashed by 10% of GDP.  Both sides will ride the boat until it sinks, then quickly blame the other side and keep the debate within the phony left-right thing. 

We are doomed.  This boat will sink.  There is no majority political will in this country to fix it, so it will not be fixed.  Buckle up.

Kick back, relax, and enjoy the free fall.

It is sort of exciting, in a drag race among the Developed world to see who can 3rd world themselves first.

This is what they say they are willing to cut.  Actual cuts (as reminded in the video) will be far less than what they say.

"When all is said and done, more is said than done."

We can not even cut spending to fund NPR without hysterical rants. 

The Wisconsin unions are scary -- going after businesses that do not publicly embrace their position. 

Game on folks -- it is us against them.  Align yourself only with like minded people.  The big government, dependency loving, low personal responsibility, victim class is coming after you.

Understood - but some revolutions are not decided by headcount.   

The majority of folks who pay virtually no federal income taxes (and a few that do but who think they should live better - despite being easily in the top quartile of the world) like where all of this is headed.  The class warfare flames are being fanned by government - it is what most in government want.  They only see things as zero sum games -- for every winner, there is a loser.

If not already, at some point you and everyone else will be on one side or the other -- a victim of some sort or someone the victims want to get.

I am not a fan of the Wisconsin unions, however there is nothing wrong with trying to organize a boycott of a business you disagree with. It is, dare I say, within their democratic rights.

Wed, 04/13/2011 - 18:07 | 1166938 Bob Sacamano

But the business never suggested they disagreed with them.  They were boycotted because the business said they would take no position on the matter -- they would not put pro union / anti-governor signs in their windows.   Absurd.

Let's see... 4 trillion minus running deficiets of soon to be 2 then 3 trillion... nope, no problems here.



I think we should just start a movement to have everyone vote democrat, so they will spend even faster.  This way the current government will fall apart faster and we can go back to living in a productive society sooner.
