The Federal Reserve has been printing and circulating $1,000 Billion a year since 2008. Thats the reason why the American dollar is performing poorly in the global market. It didn't just happen last night.

I wonder if the money printing press at the Federal Reserve has been shut down. If so, then that's helping our economy big time.

The TEA's are the most irresponsible group of radical hacks that we have seen in America. Because they don't get their way they are holding the US and world economies hostage. Lest we forget the US dollar is the worlds currency a default would increase the risk that the worlds economy could topple.
And if that happens the ice holes will claim victory if they can delay ACA .
This is absurd.
The longer this goes on the more it becomes true The Tea party is the most dangerous orginaization on the planet. All the suicide bombs in the Middle East coud never do the damage these guys are capable of doing.

LOL, all they have is bitter feelings and desperate attempts to try to offend anyone because they lost to the black guy who graduated from Harvard Law with high honors who was a constitutional professor at Harvard. but hey maybe earing fried chicken and watermelon is a symptom of a brilliant mind.

brilliant?
But not pointing fingers there are critics of the President who put a little extra venom in their observations. They make it clear what it driving them emotionally.

Obama has twice in two days attempted to affect domestic economic markets with his outrageous rhetoric. There is no expression capable of defining how low that is. He refuses to fund necessary programs, shuts down the most visible and affecting services to impose pain and suffering on people for political gain and then tries to impose an economic depression in the markets to achieve his goal of imposing programs the majority of citizens don't want. Leftists are monsters. Democrats are ruled by Leftists.

Very true Blue...The rest of the world love the dollar, it is still the benchmark .Our defaulting could cause a loss of faith in the stability of trade. The creditor nations, China i particular may cut off of credit if they believe that we are going to have an intentional default engineered by the tea.
It is not only my opinion. Read what has been published by that Hardcore socialist comrade Steve Forbes http://www.forbes.com/sites/eamonnfingleton/2...
