I really don't "get" this austerity mentalitySubmitted by ohionurse on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 00:20
So we have all seen today how the media (television, print and some internet) are spinning the whole France and rejection of austerity thing. But seriously, I just don't get it. Our credit rating has been downgraded, there are commercials on T.V. all the time about doomsday and the coming economic collapse, we are 16 trillion + in debt and rising every minute, the entitlement purses have no money in them, we are borrowing money from China just to make government payroll. Please tell me Americans won't buy this garbage. I know we have a divided country but seriously.....can't we Americans just do the math please!!!
