The US economy is collapsing at warp speed, and the major topic discussed on political boards is sex scandals?
Gold hit a $1000 an ounce today. Oil is marching to $120 a barrel. The USD lost 1.5% value on the currency exchange over night. The FOMC issued $200 billion in treasury notes to cover subprime mortgage holdings in private banks. Home forecloures are up 62% from a year ago.
And the major concern here today seems to be the sex life of the governor of NY, teenage girls, or whether or not so and so is a racist.
I wonder how many problems could be avoided in this country if people would learn to avoid red herrings and actually research some of the issues that actually effect their lives.
