In the UK and in Europe, they think the crash starts and stops in America. Oh, won't they be surprised.

Stupid Greedy people are not limited to the USA.

This does not say the UK and Europe are crash-proof. It may be tacitly saying "we're next".

of course it's a great depression. there is a republican in office. in 1996 5% unemployment was the greatest economy ever. today it's a depression.

Keith,

Did you read the actual article? The reasoning for this latest 'crisis' is the 28 million people on food stamps. You have been in the UK for a while so you probably don't know about the PR ad for food stamps going on.

All over the radio there are ads for food stamps. Ads go something like 'Are you employed? you can still qualify for food stamps. Do you own your home? You may qualify for food stamps. Do you have children in school? You may qualify for food stamps and other government aid'

They are practically begging people to apply for aid. And gee wiz what a surprise the number of recipients goes up. And it has a psychological affect as well.

Qualifications for food stamps are a joke. It's as easy to get these days as it was to get a $750K no doc ARM in 2004.

And as you very well know, even though technically illegals don't qualify, they do qualify. Many states have rules stating they can't ask for proof of citizenship to applicants. In Georgia, they have the application forms available in espanol and there is a separate 800 number for Spanish speakers. That must be for all the Spanish speaking native Georgians.

You have been bamboozled by the media on this one Keith. Shame on you.

Ed, I haven't seen those ads yet. But you can count me among the theorist who believe that some of this mess was planned if they are pushing people that hard to become welfare recipients.

Maybe they're just trying to divert a hunger crisis but you have to admit that it's a bizarre world when people who can afford to put food on their family are being told it's o.k. to get gov't supplied foodstamps.

What do you expect after eight years under President Sh*t-for-Brains, Keith? The GOP is incompetent. Has been ever since that airhead, Ronnie Rayguns, started driving the country into the ground.

WTF's in the water on your side of the pond, Keith? Or is Mad Cow Disease getting out of control again? I mean....DAMN!!!

If this is a "Great Depression", you have some limeys who desperately need to pick up a couple of history books and take a non-Marxist economics course.

The economy went in the shitter as soon as Nancy Peloser and the Dummycraps took over Congress in 2006. How did you dopes like Bubba's dotcom ponzi scheme? His Wall Street buddies fleeced your 401k's pretty good. You idiots all thought it was a great new paradigm where pets.com would rule the world. BWAHAHAHAHA

I say fuck the British and European press in general. They all hate America because we stand for freedom and all that is good in this world. America is still the greatest nation in the world and we are still that shining city on top of a hill that everyone else wants to emulate.

We still have the world's largest economy and people will continue to invest in the U.S.A. because they have to, there is no other alternative. I still believe deep in my heart that we are a special people and a special country and God has blessed us and has special plans for our nation.

The European depression already started in Spain and will spread like Muslims through out Europe.

Helicopter Obama will be dropping food stamps all over Africa and Haiti, after borrowing money from the Chinese to pay for it. After all, it's in the 10 points of his church.

There are two other reasons food stamp use is at an all time high. Food stamps are no longer stamps, now people swipe a card. It's just like using an credit or debit card. Nobody in line even know you are using food stamps. This has for better or worse (IMO worse)taken the stigma away.

The other reason food stamps have exploded in popularity is the huge increase in illegitimate children. I think just about every single mother could qualify for food stamps. It almost makes me think the government wants the breakdown of the family unit so they can step in and take control of people's lives.

Shut your buzzer! Our great American country has been financially destroyed! Accept it already, Bush & Co did us in. We must now live with our decisions for voting him into the presidency.

Oh yeah, he loves the US alright!! Especially after that slavery and KKK gig.
He,s probably over the moon that we invaded a country that had zip all to do with 9-11. Oh and he,s practically looking down on this country all teary-eyed with pride, that has a huge gun control problem, with university killings and gun rampages. He loves the USA alright, with its total disregard for his planet, driving fat Hummers,
and destroying his beloved green planet.

He gets all warm and fuzzy, when he looks at New Orleans and our world class health care system. He loves us because we spend more on war and military killing machines than the entire world put together.
He is probably looking down right this second at our over-crowded jails. our gang bangers and urban sprawl and corrupt greedy corporations and thinking.....You know what? I have special plans for America!! Yep you are right, my friend, he blessed this country alright.

people think the same thing here in vancouver, canada. schiller's named us the "world's bubbliest city", but one one's listening.

average cost of a two story single family home in vancouver is closing in on 900,000. average income is $43,000 a year. average household income is about $60,000.

canadians are just as crazy.

Haha! I almost thought you were serious for a second there. That is very funny, but I think many people won't be able to notice you're being sarcastic - sarcasm can be hard to convey in print.
