what a topsy turvy, mad world we live in. Pravda speaks the truth, and there is an article in Pravda that dumbocrats and Canadians will not like

If Frank Mir had been in PRIDE he would be the GOAT
Also, I admit I only read one article about Iceland's approach but it doesn't seem feasible in a country that is 10 times the size could have similar results. From the article, Iceland decided to say "f*ck it" we aren't paying our debts to foreign countries and seized control of the banks. If you are going to spend money, I do like how it benefitted the consumer and not the bank, Ron Paul actually said the same thing, he said he didn't support government spending but if it was going to be spent, at least give it to the consumer and not bi banks. I also like how they cut spending across the board and I would support higher taxes on the wealthy IF spending would be dramatically curbed but I think overall the tax system needs to be abandoned and a new one created.
I just cant get behind government seizing banks b/c of something they helped create (in the US at least) and just sweeping debts owed under the rug. Could you imagine what would happen if the US said, "meh, I don't think we should have to pay you?"
