    More at RealClearMarkets - Let's Put to Bed the 'America Is Bankrupt' Myth

    Sorry, couldn't resist starting up a flamewar.

    Maybe after this I can start threads on how average US real incomes are up, inflation doesn't exist, but hey let's stick to one hornets nest at a time...

    There are people who want this country leveled with the third world so they can get more cheap labor.


    The right defends these very people day in and day out.

    Nope... but way to exagerate things so no one takes you seriously.

    So we are spending trillions of dollars we don't have. But we aren't bankrupt? Everything's fine. Ignore the fact that our credit rating is on shaky grounds. There is no problem.

    Denial is dangerous when dealing with serious problems our nation has.

    All we need to do is go back to the tax levels that gave us the great times during the mid century

    So you agree we should go back to 90% tax rate on the 1% ?


    Our corps did fine and America was on top in education and many other areas.
