So France is like Greece in a year or two? That cool, I'm sure Luc Besson will save the country. his movies are hits yo.

I won't laugh. France going down is very bad thing, and the sad thing is that we all saw the cliff coming and warned them and they drove off anyways.

France at one point owned the lion share of its own debt....so that is going to change drastically, then we will REALLY begin to see the impact.

Thought this was a pretty informative, and scary piece.

It lays out the problem with the budget and where the issues are with entitlements and government spending using the 2012 line items.

Warren Buffet could donate $49 billion and still live comfortably off of $1 billion. Why doesn't he do that?

That is the dumbest title for an article ever.

The US generates trillions in GDP every yer taxing the wealthy more than any other class may not generate that much of a difference in income. Although I still do believe they should be paying a lot more and the rates reduced on the middle class.

21 Ways Rich People Think Differently

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/21-way...fferently.html

It sounds to me like they think like sociopaths. I guess most people won't become rich for the same reason most people won't kill other people for sexual gratification.

I like how this article reinforces stereotypes of the rich while trying to down play the stereotypes. And a lot of those things rich people can only think by virtue of being rich in the first place.

Saying rich people are all alike is just as stupid as saying all poor people are alike, but the exact same people who constantly generalize and stereotype the rich as uniformly evil get outraged when someone says all poor people are lazy bums. Either way, you're doing the exact same thing...judging someone by how much money they have.

Henry Ford cared? He had his thugs threaten his workers into not unionizing. He wrote anti-Semitic and pro-Hitler newspaper articles to the point of being awarded a medal by Hermann Goering.

Also the Jews. The point of the article is still salient though.

Charles Lindbergh was an anti-Semitic Nazi sympathizer too.

It certainly doesn't hurt. Also, didn't Bill Gates steal the idea for windows? Something like that.

Anyway, that article is infuriating.
