By 2012 prices will have fallen a great deal more or most
people will simply do without. More massive unemployment
and the dollar tanking, blue gums and his Wall Street
socialists will more than have his hands full.

Watch how quickly foreign money comes in and buys up the rest of the country. Thank you bankers for selling us out!

Don't people understand that if prices on goods are dropping and they are continuing to buy, the goods they are buying are not, and will not ever be made in America. That means fewer of our own workers will be employed, and less savings will be in the hands of fewer and fewer people: nothing like the upper half of the middle class destrying the lower half ogf the middle class, all in the name of owning cheap shit made in China that they probably don't need and will break or fall apart in a year anyway.
For this country's economy to survive, we need more comsumer products and services made by or provided by Americans earning higher salaries, and that, of course, means the price of things goes up.
So, if we say that it is a given that no one wants THAT to happen (except the workers) what will that mean to the continuation of the American economy and the American way of life? You all figure it out.
