This is a little bit funky , i can read my last post and common sense's reply when i am logged out , and when i log in they disappear .

You realize the easier answer is that a technician/programmer accidentally mixed up the two inputs, right? Occam's razor says that holds more weight than a conspiracy that Romney went to elaborate and personal lengths to ensure that he got selected instead of Obama; besides, that machine could have ended up in Texas or Utah for all we know - states that were guaranteed GOP as opposed to a borderline state like Philly.


In reply to your post , i hope you realise i was taking the piss .

Trumpet calling for a revolution because he didn't wait until more of the west coast votes were counted for the popular vote. Hussein is winning by 2.6 million now. :lol:

You clearly have no clue what you're talking about. Your link leads to a story about bank stocks pushing the DOW below 13k. Big friggin' deal.

In early September the Financials index (XLF) was at $13.20. Today after your world ending crash it's at $13.70. That's an increase of nearly 4% in just 2 months. So what are you so upset about?

Surprised this thread isn't dead yet, but I guess you can't account for the butthurtery of the right. Most of the policies in which Obama wants to put through get blocked by a republican house, you can thank the devaluation of August 2011 on the Tea Baggers who neglected to raise the debt ceiling. Obama isn't the problem, the right is.

Why should the debt ceiling be raised? (continuously, at that)

Why default when you could easily ask for the ceiling to be raised?

Yes, no one wants more spending or a greater deficit, but when you've taken out a significant loan and you have the option to extend the loan or raise the borrowing amount, you do so. No sense in defaulting because some uninformed tea baggers want to shout 'no more spending', and be as unqualified to make that decision as Joe the plumber. The bottom line is the ceiling could have been raised without any backlash or devaluation. But hey, why am I complaining, the Canadian dollar is great compared to the American $ right now.

Republican 'rape caucus' suffers heavy losses

Rachel Maddow reviews the litany of Republicans who made the mistake of expressing their offensive ignorance about rape and/or women's bodies out loud in public and notes that the American voting public rejected them at the ballot box.

Ossi's right. There's no good reason to default on a loan when you don't have to. It's just a case of teabaggers whining about whatever the administration does, whether it's good for the country or not.

FTR: Obama did a lot of spending in his first term because he had to. Stimulus packages and bailouts were necessary evils to keep the country out of a deep recession, which it was facing thanks to two ridiculously expensive wars that Dubya had gotten them into.

The unfortunate thing is, the GOP still controls the House, which means it will once again be difficult for Obama to do the things that really need to be done (like reducing Defense spending and true Universal Healthcare) despite Romney's call for "co-operation" in his concession speech.

No sense in defaulting because some uninformed tea baggers want to shout 'no more spending', and be as unqualified to make that decision as Joe the plumber. The bottom line is the ceiling could have been raised without any backlash or devaluation. But hey, why am I complaining, the Canadian dollar is great compared to the American $ right now.

American currency becoming worthless, while good for the loonie, is bad for Canada at the same time due to our dependency upon their dollar.

Defaulting was actually a good choice because it means the US would immediately have to spend within it's own means, like every other country not Greece, or Spain, rather than living on excessive consumption that it can't afford. It would be disastrous for the short term but it would be great for the long term.

Americans still believe they should be living in the bubble era without understanding that era comes with great consequence once the party is over and reality hits that there's a tab to pay. Americans had a chance to go into a deeper recession but come out strong but instead government bailed out companies, absorbed toxic debt, injected money throughout the world into financials and foreign banks, printed money like crazy, and tossed stimulus after stimulus (guaranteed another is coming with Obama's 2nd term), so now you have a situation where the necessary medicine to take is going to be that much more heavy, and it needs to be taken now to avoid that much worse of a situation later.

Defaulting does not mean a dime is not spent, it means spending within what you have as far as funds go. A good way of analogising that is spending within your chequeing account and not your credit account. How is this a bad thing given the importance of not endlessly accruing debt and defaulting that way? This seems just a game of perpetuated borrowing until no one gives them the credit anymore, then they'll default anyways.. by then interest payments will be so high a much larger recession than needed to be will result. This is ridiculous. While I doubt the tea party and other people protesting the ceiling had much an idea what they were protesting, it still was a better idea than this.
