    • You are a very bitter person Bob. And from which developed country a you from if i may ask? Ooh, i seem to remember that Bob is the Zimbabwean president.

      • Bob does not know what Zimbambwe is nor can afford to travel to Zimbabwe nor to Yekaterinburg because his paycheck is just enough to pay his credit card debt on his new video game console and his three year old lap top with which he is online now. So Bob is forced to stay in a little mid-west town and drive an early 90s US car with 300k miles on its engine. Bob will surely vote for Mitt Romney, because one day in the future he will be millionaire he thinks, but at the end of the day he will hook up on EBT and medicaid because he is so narrow-minded that no respectable firm will give any senior role. And that is the end of the story. We should feel pity for him and stop insulting Mr Mugabe with such comparisons, he deserved better.

  1. Unfortunately you describe all to many Americans. Being one I know. No one knows what the effect of such horrendous debt will be on the coming economic collapse. I’m thankful that I am old when I consider the possibilities. BTW, you may not realize that our elite loves socialism. You know, the kind where you socialize the expense and privatize the profits.
