Don't forget Japan and Korea... We shipped our industry overseas after WWII to buy friends at our expense... 


Problem is the latest generation doesn't know anything different.  They realize that they don't need to slave for us for saving them after the war.   What are we bringing to the table now?

We shipped our industry overseas so that we could buy their goods with money we borrowed from them.

Buy hey. It's an improvement. Using credit cards is so much easier than working.

And that was a protectorate of Monaco, at one time, before Malta conquered it.

None of this is surprising me.

Europe doesn't want to print, is it not obvious yet ?  And don't worry, that doesn't mean gold will go down. Just the opposite actually.

The ECB will not print to bail out the PIIGS.  They are saving their firepower to resque France and Germany when the time comes in about six months to a year.  But in the end they will print.  And then some.

Germany is planning an exit.  France wants Germany in a leverage EFSF, so it doesn't end up  holding the bag, and there's a mutual assured destruction, to check its regional power rival, if the CDO2 ends up imploding.

Germany already has an exit message: The bond purchasing by the ECB contravenes article 123 of the Maastriche Treaty.  And Germany will not accept...

Whatever!  The french and the germans always play nice together - I mean other than the Napoleanic wars, WWI, WWII, and a few other minor conflicts they get along fine.

Nothing to worry about folks ... right?

that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, esp knowing that MY TAXDOLLARS were robbed by my government for the benefit of the "best and the brightest" of our country at Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs- both whom exposed themselves ON MY TAX DOLLARS to French banks (SG, Dexia and BNP Paribas).  

Before the NYSE merged with the German bank exchange. 

I'm not so sure about this hedging strategy. I prefer the Asia-Pacific rim, Argentina or maybe a tax haven like our lobbyists.

Oh I am tired of these jokers. Let them fight in some remote desert arena. I'd pay to see that. But no survivors. Next: Krugman vs. Coulter.

Hey - all I am saying - no left/right bullshit. There is a common ground for both sides. Sheesh - I hope you don't do something stupid like another civil war or something like that.

edit: after some research it appears that CF bolds all his comments. For example:

Almost everyone on this site looks at the oncoming economic collapse....but the political system is also core-rotten and nearing collapse. Put the two together and you get the Thing Which Has Yet To Be Named. TSA? Both the upper echelon Oinks (Bankers, plutocrats, politicians) and lower echelon Oinks (TSA, public employee unionists, urban libs...those currently "occupying Wall St") are going to be hunted to extinction.


Now what would his buddy Rush think of that? BREEHEEHEE!! 

edit #2: CF wrote: End the Fed. Liquidate the banksters. Break the Zionist/Communist JewPower.
