#1 Deninger was painting Moody's with a pretty tarry brush yesterday - might need to look carefully for ulterior motives in their pronouncements these days.

#2 Five years is simply too large a spread. I think we're aleady seeing the in some sectors. Having to borrow money to pay the interest on the borrowed money... not good.

#4 Wait till they get that, one and only, special offer in the mail to consolidate all their bills at the low low interest rate of 21%.

#5 So we will have a new crisis. My thought is we will follow the natural course of things by giving government control of our discretionary income. A debit card is all we will have to use on anything we acquire. Everything will be rounded off so no change or money given back. We will use the card for everything. Driving, what we eat, medical, so we will either be approved or declined for each and every activity. Think of the intervention at every turn. The government owned banks will be funded and programed to fund each person an amount they feel you are allowed.
So discretionary income is at their discretion.

#6 Forget the debit cards Dale. Ombamacare will provide the electronic embedded chip. It will only leave a small mark. Nothing beastly.

#7 We'll be back to the late '70s: soaring energy and asset prices, high inflation, high interest rates. Buy oil futures, gold, precious metals.

Putin is laughing at us. All the way to his Swiss bank accounts where his 10 20 30 40 50 60 billion is kept.

#8 I'll go with it being a mark or stamp on the forehead or the back of the hand Besoeker. (1)

The mark might be a microchip, RFID, etc...

((1) That's a reference to the 'mark of the beast' from Revelations.)

#9 If we take Congress' credit cards away in 2010 and rollback and cleanup Congress' playground, our country might have a chance. The government has to refrain from their psychopathic urges towards social engineering, regulation of everything, and taxes. The government also has to start thinking that business is not a dirty work and start working towards stimulating American business again rather than handicapping and neutering it.

It doesn't matter. Once the baby boomers are eligible for SS and Medicare in large numbers, it will overwhelm the budget. You can zero out every other federal spending and SS, medicare and interest will will still cause the budget to be in deficit.
