The quick description of this video is:

Fareed Zakaria, editor-at-large at Time Magazine and host of CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” program, discusses his book “The Post American World” and the U.S. economy.

Zakaria, speaking with Tom Keene on Bloomberg Television’s “Surveillance Midday,” also discusses U.S. policy in the Middle East and the sovereign debt crisis in Europe.

Is that enough for your lunch plate?

    For the vast majority of the people in the upper 5% (the only beneficiary of 30 years of voodoo economics) it was purely greed. There certainly are some “evil doers” but most it happened from a gradual errosion of cumulative changes in legislation.

    As for the wall street guys, besides being the whiniest guys on the planet, they will always do exactly what they can get away with.

    Foobar for the Win. FFTW.

    foobar==I could go low key and say “We are saying the same thing.” But I will be myself: “You are falsely differentiating between slow erosion and intentional evil.” Missing the fact that great evil all at once, say like turning MediCare into a voucher program, is too often spotted for the truth it is rather than the LIE the PUKES present it as.

    So, you have the evil part of it right, but the blaze/innocence of it wrong. But you are closer than most here, and thats always a better place to start from. Good thing you aren’t the type of idiot/shill that thinks the Dumbos and the Pukes are “the same.” Its that kind of stupidity that is KILLING AMERICA.

    Now just why do 50% of the 95% vote to KILL THEMSELVES AND THEIR KIDDIES all to benefit the top 5%? Everything I can guess at just doesn’t make any sense. Kinda like standing at attention and pledging to a flag on a hot summer day. Does that make any sense to anyone?

    This blog would be so much more enjoyable to read if it had a filter that blocked all posts containing the following words:
    Hoomans
    Jebus
    Pukes
    Dumbs
    Bush
    Cheney
    Palin
    religion

  5. bobbo, the pragmatic Libertarian says:

    Silly hoomans like the Cheney Puke Puppet Bush and the religion pandering Palin make Jebus cry and the Dumbs look Smart.

    BTW–who uses “Dumbs?” That is offensive.

    FFTW! Fastest Fourier Transform in the West.

    Thanks What?, you just made a geek’s day.

    #35 Bobbo, I sent your name in so when we start throwing seniors off the cliff, you are first to go.

    First deleted any vouchers with your name on them.

    Just so you know, we Republicans are thinking of you.

    #37 In other words, after we fix medicare and social security, we will leave you on the Democratic defunded by progressives ponzi scheme plans…which means you will have no plan at all.

    Obama, Reid, Pelosi, already gave your money to the unions, and left IOU’s behind…so sorry.

    #28, which Reagan started.

    BINGO!!!

    And he wouldn’t have been able to it If any of you wish to check we had restraint until we gave up the gold standard. (from #19)

    When you can just print money, loads and loads of people will soon find they can vote themselves some of it.
