Default I.O.U.S.A...

You have to see this film. The group that produced this film is headed up by a good friend of mine's brother, Addison Wiggin and is in teh running for an Oscar nomination. Last night, I saw it for the first time at his bro's house and if you think the bailout issues are big, you ain't seen nothing yet. What I particularly appreciate about this film is that it is a non-partisan, get-to-the-root-of-the-problem look at how we got here and how we can get out of the debt crisis we face as a nation. IMO, it should be required viewing for every high school student...

Nope, instead they show the kids Al Gore's "Inconvienient Truth" and pretend like it's scientific fact.

“There’s no doubt that we have not been able yet to reset the confidence in the financial markets and in the consumer markets and among businesses that allow the economy to move forward in a strong way,” Obama said. “And my job as president is going to be to make sure that we restore that confidence.”

He also said: “We shouldn’t worry about the deficit next year or even the year after. ... The most important thing is that we avoid a deepening recession.”

I saw it when was first shown, mind boggling. The only part they pissed me off was Warren and his BS about paying more taxes. Hell he does not draw a salary, all of his holdings pay him at a flat tax rate.
