    Once this bubble bursts, our economy will WISH for years like the Great Depression.

    Everyone today, in every industry is gearing up for the coming Green Bubble that Barack Obama himself will be responsible for creating with his new infrastructure innovations to help create 3 million new jobs. But once we find out that global warming is not man-made and energy prices for oil and other commodities drop to record lows on waning demand, the Green Bubble will burst.

    Once that happens, every single company that is dependent upon this Green Fad, will go belly up.

    Enjoy the good times ahead, my friends, but be wary of when the green bubble will burst. Save money, be conservative with it, don't spend frivously like we did in the 1990s and we'll be fine. If we repeat the Roaring 90s in credit and borrowing, this country's economy will be shattered into more pieces than any federal reserve or any bailout bill can glue together.

    Ethanol production in particular is unsustainable. If anything deserves to crash and burn, it's ethanol. Expect lots of sob stories from the agricorps, who will trot out a few of the remaining independent farmers to grovel for handouts. Thank god we never built the trillion dollar hydrogen infrastructure that all the pundits were clamoring for eight years ago.

    We should build roads with so many curves and turns that you can't possibly exceed 40mph, that way it won't matter that your electric piece-o-shit-mobile only goes 40mph.
