Obama is talking to Wall Street about the Government Default as in (the end of the F'n world) being a very real possibility. We'll see what that does to the markets starting in Asia in just a couple of hours. Is he really talking about a Pale Horse who's rider said unto him, "Come and see"....
Maybe we're just talking about the Federal Reserve going all QE666 and buying up all the outstanding dollar denominated debt on the planet. They could actually do that. It would put an awful lot of cash into circulation.... I'm not sure what that would really do.... Since all that cash would be in only a relatively few hands, maybe nothing would happen. Maybe we could just have a Biblical Jubilee, forgive all the debt and start over. That's probably not what the right-wing billionaires behind the current crisis have in mind. I'm thinking they have in mind bringing in the other three Horsemen and having a good old-fashioned Apocalypse.
In the 'real news' today, the production company that was paying Michael Jackson's doctor to make him into a zombie, you know, just like in the video 'Thriller'.
