    I am so glad this guy lives in New York, the one place on Earth that Piers Morgan tells me keeps guns out of the hands of crazy people.

    Recessions have a useful purpose. They force spendthrift and profligate governments to curtail nonessential programs and wasteful spending. Barack Obama did none of the above. He increased spending instead. Whats seventeen trillion dollars among friends, anyway?

    The Germans, clever and intelligent nation that they are, inflated their way out of the massive reparations debt they agreed to pay when WWI ended. They got Adolph Hitler in return.
