Here's another reason to love the stimulus that hasn't gotten much press: the developed world's insatiable hunger for global capital to fund their fiscal stimuli is going to leave the developing world fighting for the leftover scraps of sovereign debt. All the unwashed masses who had presumed to aspire to first-world standards of living in their lifetimes will now stay mired in their destitution. If we can seal the deal with the next-generation Kyoto Protocol, we'll have them successfully locked in abject poverty forever. The delicious irony that we will claim to be doing it for their sake is just icing on the cake.

For all his intelligence and for all the supposed debate over his birth certificate, which I've mostly ignored, it's the way President Obama has treated/not treated his Kenyan family that proves he's 100% American.

And it's exactly this sort of short-sighted self-centeredness that has earned the US the reputation in the world community that Obama supporters seem to be so concerned about.

Ranting, sorry. I'm annoyed.
