America Is Eff'd!

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

America Is Eff'd!

Postby Meds » Mon Aug 08, 2011 10:02 pm

So our southern neighbor just got bitch slapped for their over-spending ways when Obama opened his mail this morning and saw a letter from the bank of Standard & Poor informing him that the well was dry and Rango wasn't showing up to save the day.

I'm pretty happy that Harper has been playing his hand conservatively (<-- see wot) and that Canada is among the most stable countries in the world right now. Not sure what all is going to happen, I won't deny feeling a twinge of trepidation.

I agree, and I don't see any way out of this that isn't going to be painful for a number of years to come. Unfortunately, they are probably going to take us down with them :(

And to think they had a budget surplus under over-spender Clinton... that was turned into a record deficit in record time by the Staunch Conservative W.

Hmm, what's wrong with this picture?

It wasn't a 'real' surplus, he just stole money from Social Security for general revenue.

Nobody (not even card-carrying Republicans) seriously believes this.. do they?

Although it's probably worth pointing out that Canada had a far more stable financial system in place well before we had a Conservative government.

I saw plenty of fiddling about while the Bush was burning.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Save the Illuminati jokes for the other thread - this thread is about the collapse of an empire.

Canadian all the way through, but living amongst the enemy :look: . In the 14 years I've been here, it's amazing the change that has happened, but most people just don't care - they've given up. Everyone knows that the game is rigged, but what can they do? Obama's 'hope and change' has disillusioned a huge amount of people who believed his BS. The Tea Party was overtaken by fools like Palin.

At least here in Chester, I'll be able to see the tanks coming from miles away.

Does a concave empire collapse inward or outward?

Fixed.

You guys sitting up north better hope for inward. I could see a lot damage happening if the US decides to take as much of the world with them.
