Aw, you're just raining on the reign because they won't rein in spending.

Wow, would you lend money out to 30 years for 3.2%? Not this guy!

I remember that bankers used to trip over each other to lend money to anybody for "no doc" mortgages, even to illegal immigrants in California!

And I bet Greece did not have to pay much for its bond before the current fiasco.

Crazy things have a way of going on for a long time, until something finally happens. I do not wish for bad things to happen to Uncle Sam, hey he's my uncle too, but I am just sayin'...
