"Is It Time to Bail Out of America?"

Matter-Eater Lad

Recommended Posts

"The financial damage inflicted on Americans by their own government is as great as would be expected from foreign conquest."


This reminds me of Thomas Jefferson: "I sincerely believe banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies."


"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

Abraham Lincoln


"How can President Obama even think about fighting wars half way around the world while California cannot pay its bills, while Americans are being turned out of their homes, while, as Business Week reports, retirees will work throughout their retirement (which assumes that there will be jobs), while careers are being destroyed and stores and factories shuttered.


Americans are facing tremendous unemployment and hardship. Obama doesn’t have another dollar to spend on Bush’s wars.


Taxpayers are busted. They cannot stand another day of being milked by the military-security complex. The US government is paying private mercenaries more by the day than the monthly checks it is providing to Social Security retirees.


This is insanity."

"The time has come, off the back of the current crisis, to proclaim that the great neo-liberal experiment of the past 30 years has failed, that the emperor has no clothes," he writes of those who placed their faith in the corrective powers of the market.


"Neo-liberalism and the free-market fundamentalism it has produced has been revealed as little more than personal greed dressed up as an economic philosophy. And, ironically, it now falls to social democracy to prevent liberal capitalism from cannibalising itself."


Don't you hate it when capitalism cannibalizes itself? :laugh3:
