Damn Mr Sessions!!!

Do we have a new freedom fighter? yes I know he's not even close to a liberterian. But ever since he questioned Sec. Def. Leon Panetta, it looks as though he has been awakened to what I can only describe as the self-sabotage of this nation by our elected/unelected representatives. From that to really digging in deep into ObamaCare to find out the trillions in unfunded liabilities it straps to the back of the taxpayers. Our RP scouts need to keep an eye on Congressman Jeff Sessions, he's showing alot of potential & alot of balls.

Don't Worry! Obama relies on Sun Yat-Sen's method: print!

Don't Worry! Obama relies on Sun Yat-Sen's classic method: "Why not print more money so everyone becomes rich?"

Author of "The Three Principles", Sun was a great philosopher but a bad economist. Sadly, neoliberals have taken to command economy capitalism faster than revolutionary Chinese ever. could.

Which leads us to the neoliberal principle: "Got a funding problem? Make Bernanke pay. He'll do it."

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

No surprise!

$99 Trillion shortfall

A public company would have to report a funding gap in pension and retiree healthcare funding as a liability (ie, debt). Imagine Americans reaction if we were talking about a $115 Trillion debt instead of $16 Trillion.

If Paul isn't elected...

Then we'll be talking about that soon.

"We may never, as a country, have a balanced budget again," said Marc Goldwein, policy director for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. "And you know what? We don't have to."
