Furthermore, we now know that the intent of our Government is to spend its way into AT LEAST a $2.2 trillion deficit this year, which is reflected by the year-end debt limit ceiling raise by $300 billion PLUS the additional $1.9 trillion debt ceiling raise being superficially debated in Congress. That's the minimum spending deficit this year, as States will need billions in loans and Unemployment Benefits will no doubt be extended. To be sure, Government payroll (of which Extended Unemployment Insurance beneficiaries are a part) may be the only source of Democratic votes in November. Anyone who looks at that picture and thinks the dollar can go higher from here is taking too many hits from the bong.
One more point: I'm horrified by the lack of public outrage over the Supreme Court decision yesterday upholding the right of big business to spend as much as they want getting their people elected to Congress/the Presidency. That pretty much seals the transition of our way of Government from democracy to fascism:
