    O inicio da terceira guerra mundial:
    Can you imagine? Can you imagine if President Obama, giving the following type of speech to the American citizens.
    He’ll give a national televised address and say, “My fellow Americans, I’ve got a little news for you today. We’re going to have to have a massive, across-the-board tax increase on average working Americans. Any American that still has a job is going to have to pay much higher income taxes.
    “And, as a matter of fact, we’re going to have to cut Social Security across the board. Forget the Social Security check, we’re going to have to reduce it. And remember all my plans about more education and health care for everybody and energy independence, we got to put all those plans on hold, because the Chinese need their money.
    “We borrowed a lot of money from the Chinese and we’re good for our debts. They worked hard for that money and they loaned it us to and we’re going to pay it back. And that’s going to require a big sacrifice on our part.”
    Does anyone think that we’re going to do that? What are they, kidding me?
    Do you know what we’re going to tell the Chinese? We’re going to say, “You guys are predators, predator lenders. We need a modification program. We need a cramdown on this. You never should have lent us all this money. You know we can’t pay it back. It’s not our fault.”
    The Chinese know this. The Chinese, they can’t even vote in our elections. Why are we going to care what they think? We’re going to tax voters to pay non-voters? So the Chinese know they’re in this box.

    Duvido que os chineses se riam da piada …

    Meanwhile… O Vice Presidente já está em marcha atrás, o desastre vai ser mounmental.

    Biden tells “Meet the Press” that “everyone guessed wrong” on the impact of the stimulus, economy was worse off than anyone thought.
    Backs away from the estimate that the funds could create or save 3.5 million jobs, instead promises 600,000 by the end of the summer.

  3. “Meanwhile… O Vice Presidente já está em marcha atrás, o desastre vai ser [monumental]”

    O mais provável é virem dizer que o estímulo deveria ter sido maior…
