OH NO!  STEPHEN KING HAS GONE COMMUNIST ON US, IT'S LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF ONE OF HIS HORROR BOOKS!  NEXT THING YOU KNOW TWO DEAD TWINS ARE GOING TO TELL AMERICA WE SHOULDN'T BE GIVING TRILLIONS TO A BUNCH OF MUSLIM COUNTRIES THAT HATE AMERICA!

Things may stink in America, but at least we ain't Spain

In reaction to the recession a few years ago, Spain and several other countries enacted massive austerity measures at the advice of "financial experts."

The result?  Spain has lost over 100 billion dollars in the last year (money leaving the nation), it's had it's credit ratings knocked down significantly, it's unemployment has skyrocketed to 25% and numbers of educated citizens are abandoning home to go to Germany.

I haven't kept up with the controversy on my site (it's already everywhere else) but after a week of calling some girl a slut, whore and asking she post sex videos online for asking for health care insurance for contraceptives, Limbaugh seems to have crossed "the line" in most people's eyes.

A look at the national debt

Everyone (well, conservatives) say that the debt is all Obama's fault.... as if it never existed before him.

They even go on about the "economic miracle of the Reagan era" (last Republican Presidential Debate) while ignoring the massive debt increase under Reagan.

Well.... here are the actual stats!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_debt_by_U.S._presidential_terms

To sum it up....

1. Debt rose remarkably under FDR during WW2.

2. It decreased under every president after.

Another article on Anders

http://www.counter-currents.com/2011/07/already-dead-the-manifesto-of-a-...

A writer friend of mine wrote an article on Anders... an interesting piece.  Basically the gist is complaining that left-wingers will use Anders as a bludgeon to smack around anti-mass-immigrationists and other critics of the "European-style" multiculturalism.
