Default Tea Party Crazies Shake the World & China Wants Off

China calls for "de-Americanized" world economy.
http://behindthewall.nbcnews.com/_ne...zed-world?lite

“If we are really rational, I cannot imagine why someone would dare to bear this kind of responsibility because any real default will have a huge impact not only on the U.S. and China, but on the global economy,” said Professor Zhao Longkai, a dean at the Guanghua School of Management at Beijing University. “It’s hard for us to imagine anyone can be that crazy to push the limit to that level.”


Meanwhile, this is the minority jerking the strings of America and the world:







How the hell did we get here?

Why that's not happening.

China's current model is more unsustainable than ours. Now let's pull back a bit from the idea of trying to be more like them.

I have never seen a point made on this board that you have been able to grasp.

My point had nothing whatsoever to do with "being more like China." For you to infer it I take as an insult. You are either a very stupid person who cannot grasp the simplest idea, or you think that by twisting the words of others into their opposite meaning it might make you seem like a very clever little juvenile.

China is very rightfully paranoid over what America might do. The rest of the world is very rightfully paranoid as well. If America defaults, many economies could very conceivably crash, and crash big. It's not a joke. It shows how ignorant the fanatics who are pulling the GOP's strings truly are.

Ah, so China is going to lead the world to a brave new reserve currency world because... while they can't even really tell anyone how far they are in debt, they're convinced that some heated political debate over public debt creates too much uncertainty.

And you're giving them an Amen!.

Quit defending these nutjobs

Tea Partyers shout racist slur at White House cops: “Looks like something out of Kenya”

Wow. I’ve been to many a protest at the White House, and I’ve never seen people belittle the police like the Sarah Palin / Ted Cruz Tea Party protesters did today. There’s video, and it’s awful.

Calling the police protecting the White House “brownshirts,” laughing at them, and then one guy says “looks like something out of Kenya.”

The fanciful notion that President Obama was born in Kenya – he was in fact born in Hawaii – is a common racist slur that Tea Party adherents and other conservative Republicans use against the President.

Keep in mind these are the same people who brought confederate flags to the protest. As Peter Sylwester noted on Twitter, “Perhaps the Confederate flag mob will move next to reopen the Lincoln Memorial.”


As background, the Tea Party, which is responsible for shutting down the federal government, decided to hold a rally today protesting their own government shutdown. The rally was led by GOP Senator, and shutdown author, Ted Cruz, and shutdown supporter Sarah Palin. Ostensibly, they were upset that the World War II memorial was shut down in their shutdown. They were not picketing, however, the cessation of cancer treatments at NIH, or the lack of death benefits for US troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan after the shutdown began.

Yes, the Tea Party turned out in force to protest their own government shutdown, and they chose to march to the White House and blame the President for a shutdown they all wanted to happen, and had planned, in the first place.

You know what would be nice? Politicians actually fulfilling the promises they made while campaigning once they're in office. Doing what those who elected them want them to do.

I think the representatives of the Tea Party districts are doing exactly what their constituency wants them to do: They're bringing down the American government.

"I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up," said Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group.

Which would be laughable, if this was not an organization backed by billionaires.

That's an ignorant and irresponsible statement.

Nah, it's all Tea Party, Cruz, Palin and Bachmann.....among others.

When will the GOP say 'enough' and isolate these bigots and idiots before they become the face of the GOP??

So you've got one Senator. a lady who once held office in Alaska, and a rep from Minnesota who's retiring?

Oh, none of which said anything resembling your propagraphic?

Do you really want me to look up crazy Occupiers holding crazier signs? Would that prove anything?

Do I need to find House Dems crazy-jousting Bachmann? Do you doubt that I could?

Why is 90% of the argument always about the 10% on the margins?
