Oh! Do you need a link to maybe a Barclay's CEO blog.. you know the one that mastered minded the collapse of our financial markets by fixing the LIBOR.

Cuz i here he is a real frikken genius.

How about commenting on the content rather than doing the tired old shoot the messenger.

Doesn't really paint you in a real good light.

Nope. I don't dispute anything Alex Jones purports. It's simply not worth the time or effort. Nobody who actually takes him seriously ever as any interesting to "here" otherwise anyway.

I just read the linked article. It's batty. It's not right-wing or left-wing nonsense, but whole-spectrum. He's tilting at windmills.

Been there, done that. I've repeatedly debunked Roberts. People have sent me PMs thanking me, because they no longer waste their time with such nonsense like Infowars.

Commenting....

Psychedelic windmills. I mean, it starts off with the premise that Bush blew up the WTC... off to a good start. If you want to have an article about loose change (and trust me, he has many), fine. But to base your entire point on that premise being fact... nope. If you want to dispute something, dispute what is correct -- much more manageable. I'll start off... Stiglitz. That's about it. If you've never heard of Stiglitz, this article was worth reading. It's all drivel with a name drop to make it sound credible.

Bond price bubble not going to happen ?

Unemployment not going to increase?

CPI not an issue?

Endless war debt not a problem? We can absorb the interest payments?

Batty?

Okay, i guess all is well in the world.

Back to playing Golf.

We don't have these issues in the world? Okay. I'm shocked at the apathy toward our circumstances. It truly will be a surprise to most Americans and the World when the house of cards burns.
