TR, I would be interested in your take on Timmy G's current begging to increase uncle sam's debt limit. Clearly, this needs to happen, but this will have tigger some saber rattling about a potential downgrade for the US. At what point does the Fed just say F it and try to inflate our way out of this?

"have to trigger"

Is that rob in the picture with the trillion dollars?

Danimal said...

the million looks so small. what does $350 look like? or better yet, a big negative number which i think would better represent the financial situation many here are in

Igor said...

Danimal, it's like you have a window into my brain. And my bank account. (which, at this point, I only keep for the free lollipops.)

You can put a pic of me in the fetal position next to the negative pictorial representation.

awesome-- i love that graphic and i am going to show it to my numerically challenged students (last week i asked them what they thought the population of the US was-- i got answers from 600,00 to 300 billion)

a TEACHER said 9 billion.

Did you guys see this megadonor piece in today's NYT? Apparently Auburn has its own real-life Buddy Garrity.

Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it's nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks. Agen Judi Online 338A Sbobet Casino Agen Sbobet
