When these kinds of comments come up, I often wonder how many people actually
understand how the US economy works. I spend some time to put together some
view points of how the FED is affecting what's happening and how the "basis of
the FED" as a mechanism is not really working to manage the complexities of our
economy. There are things all over youtube.com which are records of senate and
congressional committee sessions, historical videos, documentaries etc. If you
are not really sure how the FED works and what all the "troubles" of the economy
in the U.S. and the world (because many countries chose to tie themselves to our
currency system), visible my Google+ post that I've put up and look around at
some of the videos I've linked to.

I don't mind betting that in a few years time your Politicians will be falling over themselves to vote billions of tax dollars to the Space program to prevent the US falling into 3rd place behind the Russian Federation and Beijing.
