LMAO - this site is great!!! Some outfit pretending to be anti-US, and
very anti-capitalist selling everything under the sun at very high
profit margins using every marketing trick in the book and all those
nice capitalistic things like crdit cards, etc. I bet someone is just
rolling in the dough laughing at the "idealists" that are bankrolling
his great lifestyle using mommy and daddy's credit cards.
I love it, ain't capitalism great.
In this vein, there was a post a little while ago about "deadly power
tools" and an association to ban them. I don't remember anything else
about the tongue-in-cheek 'analysis' but I do remember the slogan at
the top of the page:
"It feels good to give up a little freedom in exchange for a lot of
Chew on that awhile.
This is a little misleading. The US Treasury department categorizes
the debt (US Treasury Table OFS-1) down as debt carried by the Federal
Reserve/US Government vs debt held by private US sources vs debt held
by private foreign sources.
The fraction of the total debt held by private foreign sources is
actually almost the same as the fraction held by private US sources
(both are about 20-25% of the total). The rest is held internally by
the Fed and the government.
The claim that the national debt "is not a problem" goes counter to
common sense, and also goes counter to what every major economist
says. Foreign payments on the debt drain real wealth from the tax
base, and sustained debts result in higher effective interest rates.
In the long run, they can decrease confidence in US markets.
Yeah, because the national debt was invented during the Bush 42
And you're gonna have to explain this to me. Bush, with other investors,
bought the Texas Rangers for $89 million in 1989. After being elected
governor, Bush resigned as managing general partner in December of 1994.
According to Financial World, the value of the franchise in 1994 is $157
million. The following year, after the labor stoppage from the year before,
the value of the franchise is reduced to $138 million. In 1996, the Rangers
won the AL West and the team's value was estimated at $173 million. Two
years later, the team is sold to Tom Hicks for $250 million. So, in 9
years, the value of the team increased from $89 million to $250 million.
I'm sure there's some way this can be spun as bankrupting the Texas Rangers,
but like I said, you're going to have to explain it to me.
Oh, and "nearly" bankrupted Texas? Is that like "mostly dead"?
Truly? Damn, I thought it was years old. No one suggested Shrubor his daddy
invented the system. But Not Jr. has sure as hell perfected it.

way." Mark Twain
Interesting how you let the rest of my comments just slide. You sure you
wouldn't care to elaborate on your statement about the Rangers? Or is that
something you saw at MoveOn? Wait, I know...Michael Moore told you.
C'mon. The only thing lower on the credibility stage than Limbaugh is Drudge.
Or maybe Fox.

Go for it. As an icidental point, what's MoveOn? And who is Michael Moore? Only
one I know of has some relation to movies, which means his opinion is as
valuable as yours.

brought forth from the murky depths:
Michael Moore is a wonderfully funny comedian who also happens
to be a rabid liberal. He has written several best-sellers
including "Stupid White Men" and "Dude, Where's My Country?"
in which he brings all of the bullshit from the current country
"leaders" into the open in one place. It's amazing.
While I'm not sure I completely trust his content, it brings up
enough trackable info to immediately question our wonderful new
totali^H^H^H^H^H^Hleader's motives and agenda.
I recommend getting to a library and picking up a copy of each
to open your eyes to a bit more of what's really going on behind
the scenes of the new world dom^H^H^Horder. Then verify what you
read with other sources you trust.
Another good and scary one is "The Coming Anarchy" by Robert Kaplan.
