The Wall Street Journal editorial page’s Steve Moore critiques the president’s speeches attacking Republican budget plans.

Shock the Washington establishment by participating in the “No More Red Ink” campaign and shut down all new plans for bailouts, “stimulus” spending and even the funding for Obamacare.

“As government obligations continue to spiral out of control and the U.S. government shows no willingness to make the magnitude of spending cuts required to return to fiscal responsible, the U.S. economy is headed to a great collapse coming in the form of a hyper-inflationary great Read more…

Money talks and here is what it is saying: Here are the Current Account Balances of 163 Countries in the World COMPARED WITH LEVELS OF STREET VIOLENCE (all except Egypt at the bottom of the debt list) :

Notice the amazing entry at the bottom of this list (scroll down) taken from Gerald Celentes’ Trends Journal, the full report, 2011.The Current Account Balance records a country’s net trade in goods and services, plus net earnings from rents, interest, profits, and dividends, and net transfer payments (such as pension funds and worker remittances) to and from the rest of the world during the period specified.
