    Yup somewhere out there pigs are flying and hell has frozen over when you have Vladamir Putin slagging the U.S. for overspending. And before anyone gets angry about this, Russia holds a lot of U.S. bonds.

    :lol:

    Just amazing. A Russian leader giving America economic advice. Who thought we'd ever see this day coming?

    Meanwhile back in the U.S. the Communist Party of America has given its official endorsement of Obama and the Democrat Party for 2012.:razz: Saaaaawwwwwweeeeet!

    Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has launched a scathing attack on the United Stated and accused them of being a 'parasite' on the world economy.

    Putin said the superpower was living beyond its means 'like a parasite' and said dollar dominance was a threat to the financial markets.

    The remarks from Russia - one of the world's strongest emerging markets - comes amid speculation that the struggling U.S. will this week have its AAA credit rating downgraded.

    'They are living beyond their means and shifting a part of the weight of their problems to the world economy,' Putin said.

    'They are living like parasites off the global economy and their monopoly of the dollar,' he told the pro-Kremlin youth group Nashi today.


    AND THIS

    But Putin, who has often criticised the United States’ foreign exchange policy, noted that Russia holds a large amount of U.S. bonds and treasuries.


    'If over there (in America) there is a systemic malfunction, this will affect everyone,' Putin told the young Russians.

    'Countries like Russia and China hold a significant part of their reserves in American securities ... There should be other reserve currencies.'

    ANALYSIS: Russia faces period of stagnation with return of Putin
    Tue, Sep 27, 2011 - Spare a thought for poor Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. It was US diplomats who back in November 2008 cruelly dubbed him Robin, to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s Batman.

    He is not wrong. Our Building Debt is an issue for the Entire world. We see what is happening each time a small European Nation Defaults. If we did the same it would be devastating to the world Economy. Estimates show, at Obama spending levels. The Rest of the world will have to commit 20% of it's GDP to fund our Debt.

    And you wonder why some on the right think some on the left are doing this on purpose. To transfer wealth on a massive scale around the world.

    It's pure insanity.

    I don't' think Russia has any real right to comment on OUR state of affairs when their own is sorry as shit.
