I think I've (quite accidentally) realized something...

By TonytheTiger ·
The consumers of the United States really are in the catbird seat, even if they don't realize it!

The more money our government takes from us, the less we'll be buying from everyone else... so, many countries actually have a vested interest in seeing our taxes as low as possible. If we can't afford to buy their exports, they're not going to have the money to run their expansive social programs!

That's why the rest of the G20 are nervous! THEY wanted Obama, never dreaming he'd be doing what he's doing... and now THEY'RE having buyer's remorse.

Hmmm... I'll have to mull it over some more... but I think we can find a way to use this...

Who knows

Those guys were already on to the trick of referring to old masters of the far away and distant past -- so far and distant that no one would admit ignorance by challenge.

I keep at the ready a 2nd Century Latvian poet to buttress my antics.

China, for example, seems to have emperors and philosophers going back before the dawn of Man.

Wu Wei = Action through inaction. Not a dude.
