Currency Wars

Do forgive me for all that doom & gloom in our previous thread.

Here, this’ll cheer you up. From Jim Rickards.

    Reality is a bitch. It always gives you what you asked for.

  2. If all this comes to pass, do I still get my Obama phone?

    I voted for the guy who heads this ticket yesterday – but damn I never tire of it. Of course when the House lost the Demo majority in 2010 he didn’t have to -“again” – , as he say’s, “Madame Speaker, this bill offends my principles, but I’m going to vote for this bill to preserve my principals.”

    God I love truth-telling politicians:

  4. JK,

    If there ever is an issue of national importance that offers a clear, unvarnished, and incontrovertible correct choice for voters, please let me know about it.

    The reality in politics, as in all socio-economic policy, is that, invariably, you have to make a personal cost/benefit analysis to decide how to vote.

    If all you care about is “free stuff” from the government, Obama is your choice. If your needs go beyond such trivial self-centered gratification, Obama and his ilk are most likely NOT in your best interest.

    Yes; it’s just as simple as that.

  5. JK,

    Here’s a joke that might cheer you up a bit:

    Last Tuesday, President Obama got off the helicopter in front of The White House carrying a baby piglet under each arm. The squared-away Marine guard snapped to attention, saluted and said, “Nice pigs, sir.” The President replied, “These are not pigs. These are authentic Arkansas Razorback Hogs. I got one for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and I got one for Nancy Pelosi.”

    The squared-away Marine again snapped to attention, saluted and said, “Excellent trade, Sir.”
