Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

NEW YORK (AP) Five years after U.S. investment bank Lehman Brothers collapsed, triggering a global financial crisis and shattering confidence worldwide, families in major countries around the world are still hunkered down, too spooked and distrustful to take chances with their money.

An Associated Press analysis of households in the 10 biggest economies shows that families continue to spend cautiously and have pulled hundreds of billions of dollars out of stocks, cut borrowing for the first time in decades and poured money into savings and bonds that offer puny interest payments, often too low to keep up with inflation.

"It doesn't take very much to destroy confidence, but it takes an awful lot to build it back," says Ian Bright, senior economist at ING, a global bank based in Amsterdam. "The attitude toward risk is permanently reset."

A flight to safety on such a global scale is unprecedented since the end of World War II.

The implications are huge: Shunning debt and spending less can be good for one family's finances. When hundreds of millions do it together, it can starve the global economy.

Weak growth around the world means wages in the United States, which aren't keeping up with inflation, will continue to rise slowly. Record unemployment in parts of Europe, higher than 35 percent among youth in several countries, won't fall quickly. Another wave of Chinese, Brazilians and Indians rising into the middle class, as hundreds of millions did during the boom years last decade, is unlikely.

Some of the retrenchment is not surprising: High unemployment in many countries means fewer people with paychecks to spend. Some people who lost jobs got new ones that pay less or are part time. But even people with good jobs and little fear of losing them remain cautious.

"Lehman changed everything," says Arne Holzhausen, a senior economist at global insurer Allianz, based in Munich. "It's safety, safety, safety."

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew refused to answer Fox host Chris Wallace's simple question this morning: How many people have signed up for Obamacare?

"I'm going to ask you one last time," said Wallace, "because, forgive me sir, you haven't answered it: do you not know how many people signed up, which would seem to indicate another major software glitch, or is it that the numbers are embarrassingly small?"

"Chris, our metric for this week was, could people get online, get the information they need to make an informed," said Lew, sidestepping the straightforward question. "They have been getting that information. We are confident that they are going to make the decision -- they have 6 months to make the decision."

Wallace tried again: "So do you not know or is that the number is --"

"Well, it's obviously not my primary area of responsibility," said the treasury secretary.

Other than killing kids cancer treatments and threatening to arrest veterans for visiting their own monuments what did demokRATs do this week?

Mandated Obamakkkare will win the Senate and House for the Tea Party in 2014...

demonkRATs: Now, we have Obama literally throwing grandma out of her home. Tax granny's wheel chair! Mo' Money!

Hairy Reid demonkRATs: Let the children with cancer die..

demonkRATs: Priests threatened with arrest if they minister to military during obama's shutdown...

Obama: Close all National Parks and make people suffer AND in all fairness anyone living on federal land needs to pack up and get out. Yeah, that includes you-Obama...

facebook hates obamacare: Read the posts and see ads pandering to blacks and hispanics... https://www.facebook.com/Healthcare.gov...

The government shutdown is on obama's watch. Stock Market is up and the Government is shutdown and obama's continued deficit spending campaign on hold... 800,000 Non-Essential government workers stay home...

The American Patriot truly see demonkRATs for what they truly are: ghetto, nazi, losers and obstructionists.

AND... We Tea Party Patriots don't give a shit what you illiterate ghetto ass-clown commie liberals think...

It's the culture...

Don't compare me with you or the other mental midgets that dominate this site. Considering you or that mouth breather, no surprise, leave more comments in a single day than I post in a month, there's simply no comparison. Of course, I also realize how utterly pointless this is and you dimwits actually believe your opinions have any bearing on anyone. Keep posting your "hurtful insults" directed towards others who don't comprehend your narrow, ignorant view of the world. I'm certain the recipients will be scared for life. LOL

Ray, like most right whiners, believes in the aspirin method of birth control. Like most right whiners they cant make the connection between birth control availability & the number of abortions.

Ray believes Republicans should choose which babies eat & which go without as they continue to push to cut food Stamps & social services.
