Default Apparantly we have money to burn...

http://www.breitbart.com/article.php...show_article=1
LONDON (AP) - Prime Minister Gordon Brown says leaders at the G-20 summit have agreed to give $1 trillion to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to help struggling nations around the world.
Brown also says the 20 countries at the summit will enact common policies to crack down on tax havens, regulate hedge funds, and rebuild trust in the financial system to "prevent a crisis such as this from happening again."

He says the G-20 nations will also give emerging powers a greater say in the world economy. Brown did not outline any new fiscal measures but says that the stimulus packages already announced by major nations have already been the biggest in history.

America voted for a President in part based on the assertion that the world hates us and we need to do more to make them like us.

From what I understand is that countries who borrow from the IMF also come under their austerity measures which generally means devaluing their currencies. Taking money from the IMF can mean needing lotion for the anus.

I think I finally figured out what Obama meant by "Vote for change"

Change....he was referring to the coin people have in thier pocket....and what the street people beg for.

We had a guy in my hometown who used a windex bottle full of urine to "clean" people's windows as they sat at stoplights or pumped gas who'd get beligerent if he didn't get paid. We always called him "Dollar Bill," but now I know it was Pafuna all along...
