I would be curious to see the statistics for other industrialized nations.
I'm suspect that it's not just the U.S. but much of the world that is in this situation.

And this is based on data from two years ago (4Q2011).

Absolutely. The only reason Greece didn't collapse into civil war is because EU came to the rescue.

The race here is between:

1) U.S. citizens getting fed up with the federal and state governments and rebelling.

2) Collapse due to hyperinflation as the government tries to keep up with its debt.

I'm betting on #2. It's still many years away, but now is the time to prepare for it (as much as one can prepare).

We have passed that point. I'm sure it will take some years to come around and really bite us in the @$$ but it won't be pretty when it does.

Don't worry. We have Barry's steady hand on the tiller. We'll be fine.

After all, he has a Nobel Peace Prize.

You're fuckin' A right. Well played, CarbineDad.

This nation has people who are "recruiters" for benefits programs, and the fact that there are 16 million Americans on food stamps is considered an accomplishment by the White House.
