Crazy Thought for the Day...

...if I had been an immoral person in charge of the US government for the last eight years with the primary aim of solving fiscal insolvency, I think my government would look suspiciously like what we have now.

A half trillion dollars allocated to economic recovery, most of which have apparently yet to be actually spent?

Inflationary policies?

A government which quietly purchased half a trillion dollars in hard assets - gold, silver, steel, tungsten, copper - which then deliberately inflated its currency, and then sold off those assets, could zero out its debts and then some.

How much has the price of gold risen in the past three years, anyways?
