I went to the link and watched as well. I will have to watch it again to soak more of it up. If I lived in the neighborhood he does business, I would patronize him and bring my friends as well. Bully for him I think......
I just watched the republitard de-bate (masterbate) and felt like the American Experience was left with a fresh, frothy helping of santorum (google it). It is just one circle jerk and reach around after another and they had nothing of substance to contribute to the event or their platform of why I should vote for any of them and to rip on the previous speaker said or blame President Obama. Prez in not without fault by a long shot but Jeez, You effin republitard cndidate-political-masterbaters are gonna do nothing but make the American Experience WORSE!!! chris mathews said cain is surging, huh-huh huh (Beavis and ButtHead reference). Shame on you filthy corporate-contribution receiving whores- no offense to sex workers: thanks uncle mikey for that clarificatin. I think bill kristol and brett hume all have santorum envy. I can't believe I pollute my brain with these TV shows. Waun williams is tolerable from time to time.

"These are very, very serious and very, very rapid cuts," "The Greek context is one in which there's been a lot of tax evasion...It seems to me that people who can't hide their income -- public workers, teachers -- are the ones who are going to pay the price. said Mitchell Orenstein, professor of European studies at Johns Hopkins University.

"...unemployment is expected to climb to between 17% and 18% by the end of 2011, a figure that in reality could be as much as 5% higher. And in a country with some of the weakest social provision in Europe, whose government is pushing through a stringent austerity programme, the consequence has been the creation of a new poor, some of whom have been forced on to the streets." -Guardian,UK

Americans are oblivious and ignorant of what's happening. Those are Depression era statistics!

"Dagong(The Chinese government run rating agency), which has maintained a pessimistic outlook on US fiscal policy, has been leading the charge to downgrade US debt over the last 12 months, lowering the US rating from AA to A+ a year ago.
In August it downgraded US debt again, to A. Days later, Standard & Poor's followed in its wake" -Guardian, UK,11/11/11

That is RICH, that is VERY rich. We have a monopolistic drug pusher telling us to cut back. Well, as Sun Tzu would say, "Why wage war?"

Circle jerks can be very funny. Watching them try to answer questions is always fun. The best part is hearing how the "audience" they are trying to reach, with their coded messages, are so removed from reality. On the other hand just listen to Rush, he shifts to eight grade bully talk and put downs to discredit liberals and progressives. No coded messages there. The circle jerks are either trying to rise above it or can't even do it. Bankers are doing what the law lets them. They are not evil, they just don't care. My default position with the rich, (evil) is a series of questions. Why would the rich want to live in Mexico? Don't thy know they will be much more rich and powerful if they raise up the poor to middle class status? Don't they know they are safer and can go any where they want when no one wants to kill them or kidnap them? Apparently they like living in mansions surrounded by squalor, the contrast attenuates their wealth. There is a simple solution to the "banking" mess we are in just undo the last thirty years of legislation. Like him or not Ed Schultz did not put up with political fantasy on his show. I don't think he would let me on his show for very long.
