    “Glad to see the USA is finally addressing their debt problems as is the UK.”

    Another idiot and sheeple that keeps drinking the diet coke.
    2nd, it's cutting food stamps and bailing out the bank, (crony capitalism), you moron.

    “Protectionism, anybody?”
    They can't compete!

    sorry chica steverina, I am not your mate. I believe that is the dildo in #3

    golf.....they just sucked 13 billion in pesos out of circulation and are burning through 150 to 200 million U$ a day. How long do you suppose that reserve is going to last? And winter is the next season and they HAVE to import oil for electricity and heat.

    tic toc tic toc

    reminds me of a scene from Poe's “Pit and the Pendulum”.......eventually Argentina will be split in two.

    8. Define “hit the wall” please. You are as clueless about economics as everything else you jabber on about.

    you too,
    the USA is broke,
    think about the poor usa citizens hardly collecting a food stamp allowance of $90.00 p/m,
    the unemployed not receiving a check since 12/27/13,
    Obama blaming his race: Black for his low job performance approval
    since Bush administration the usa is going down the drain
    14 years of incompetent goverment
