Fear mongering worked quite well for Bush. Why not for Obama?

We need another housing bubble! Get the loans out to the public. Relax the requirement lending for potential homeowners and let good/worthy investors buy up all the empty foreclosed homes they want. The economy crashed with the housing bust, it would most likely pick up with a housing boom.

Why? That's how the whole mess started in the first place. It looks like people are doing the right thing, though. Savings are up. Strange concept, build wealth, and then you aren't poor????

I see. We should start to save Monopoly money.

I am very sure they will replace the Dollar with the Amero or something similar. After they arrange for the North American Union. It's the only way out and they know it. That's why they are very little concerned about debth and the value of the Dollar. It will all wash out with a new currency.

The problem: A new currency won't fix the economy, it will only reset the monetary face value.

They did it in Europe, they will do it here.
