A reckoning is coming everyone... regardless of how certain members of this forum try to label free trade, the free market, and sound economic principles based on savings instead of spending, production instead of purchases... as fringe (Is this fringe?), the fact remains that the Fiat money system and the Fed continue to devalue the U.S. dollar by printing more and more money to fund our history's largest deficit budget put together by the Obama Administration. (THEY PRINTED 1 TRILLION DOLLARS JUST A FEW DAYS AGO, DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THIS IN THE NEWS? OR WAS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA KEEPING YOU BUSY WORRYING ABOUT A FEW MILLION DOLLARS IN AIG BONUSES?) This devaluing of the dollar is the single worst thing to happen to the poor, middle-class, and the rich because it reduces the buying power of each dollar. You may make the same amount of money at your job, but that money won't be able to buy the same thing. We'll see deflation in the short-term, but huge inflation will be following ever so closely! If you really care about the poor, you won't support this unprecedented governmental growth by the Obama adminstration. If you really care about the poor, you'll have the compassion to say 'NO' to this reckless spending and inflation of the bubble. Has Bernanke lost his marbles? Audit the Fed!
