Our nearly bankrupt country is on a collision course with fiscal disaster. We're borrowing money like crazy from anybody who will buy our bonds. Unfortunately the fools that were buying have started to decline the auctions, and our make believe bank (the FED) is buying essentially worthless bonds with make believe money. We're spending trillions we don't have. Our budget deficit is exploding in phenominal fashion, with red ink Flowing and Spilling as far as the eye can see! Longer-term threats to government programs like Medicare and Social Security are getting graver by the day and the insolvency of the programs is being projected to be coming sooner and sooner almost everyday. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve is adding more and more worthless paper garbage to its balance sheet every week. It's trying to reinflate the last bubble by pumping massive amounts of money into the economy and slashing interest rates to the bone. And it's expanding its tentacles into every corner of the credit markets. If we recreate the bubble as is obviously happening, the house of cards will collapse again. Funny how history repeats itself.
