    That whole "spending 40% more than we take in" thing. The Federal Reserve ended up purchasing 61% of all federal debt issuance last year. The deficit spending just isn't sustainable and we're losing our ability to pawn off our debt onto greater fools around the world.

    Unfortunately, most of us shouldn't be surprised. More unfortunately, this is only a big deal when a Republican can be blamed. Although right about now, I blame them all.

    TEOTWAWKI is almost here. It just isn't going to look like the movie version.
