I recall someone saying they were very excited and got exactly what they wanted. Are there still people that don't realize they are intentionally destroying the economy?

Isnt China the irresponsible party by investing so much in the US? Dont smart investers spread their money around? 
HAHAH HAHHA HAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAAH

And this is new?!

Brazil, China and Russia have been working on this for some time. The NSA spying on Brazil pushed the ball further down the field then this mess will. Am I the only one here that has heard of BRICS?

I, for one, do not blame them. For a political ideology that demands everyone endorse "American exceptionalism" and goes on and on about how Jeebus loves us most of all, the teabaggers seem hell-bent on making this a third rate political power.

They believe that making the US into a corrupt authoritarian theocracy is really the best way to run the country.

Yes, but there are few other no-risk reserve currencies around. Even the Hylian rupee is having tough times these days.

The rupoor was designed to solve that problem, but that strategy has admittedly suffered from the subsequent liberal monetary policies of Chairman Tingle and the rest of the Federal Hylian Reserve.

The Septim has been down ever since the entire Oblivion incident. Gil looked unbeatable, until the most recent restructuring mess of the Final Fantasy XIV game world. I am now left to wonder if gold coins found in "?" blocks will remain a stable investment.

I'd invest in China, except for the fact that slavery is still legal there, and their currency tends to magically float around to whatever value is most convenient for the government

We give almost $50 billion in foreign aid.  Granted, that's a drop in the federal budget, but you don't have a problem with the amount or where we send it?

We should all invest in something more stable than the US dollar.

Nope. I guess it was one of the most underreported/unsustained quotes highlighted by the Liberal MSM Lamestream Driveby Gotcha USDA Media as the Conservatives are now blaming Democrats and President Obama for the shut-down.

Yeah, duh.  The Tea Party Downgrade happened for a reason and farkers are too stupid or too blinded by faith to see it.  Even if a budget passed TODAY, like before I hit "add comment" damage has been done to America's credit.

Pretty soon we aren't going to have international Internet (since the U.S. has pissed off EVERYONE with their NSA crap) and the U.S.D. will no longer be the currency everyone in the world uses as its reserve.

There is one group of people responsible, and it isn't the one headed by a black guy.

I wouldn't be very confident in the stability of an economy based on giant gold coins that magically respawn any time you leave an area and that can buy an extra life.  Seems like a recipe for hyperinflation and a very low value placed on human life.

When death can be negated by pre-emptively and repeatedly jumping on the back of turtle shells, perhaps life is currently overvalued already.

Like all extremist groups, Baggers can only thrive in terrible economic times.

In prosperous times, no one has any need for them.

Therefore, it is in the Tea Baggers' interest to worsen our economy as much as possible. A total collapse would give them the greatest boost they could possibly hope for.

"As U.S. politicians of both political parties are still shuffling back and forth between the White House and the Capitol Hill without striking a viable deal to bring normality to the body politic they brag about, it is perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanized world,"

They got a point. The outside world looks at the US right now and sees nothing but angry teatards like feeble minded ants crawling over everything and derping at the top of their lungs. No real counter protests to speak of from the Dem side. Outrage or even recognition of the GOP's deliberate actions here is largely missing from all corporate false equivalency media and if found at all mostly relegated online to places like Fark. End of the day, the American hegemonic empire is sinking as the Chinese one rises. This latest suicidal madness by the radical right only hastens a process already in play.

That very belief in 'American exceptionalism' makes that an impossibility in their view.

America CAN'T be a third world status as long as it ACTS exceptional. It's the same hubris that leads to the burning bridges politics they practice.

To an extent? No. It isn't just us being good-hearted. It's called a carrot. It gives us something we can *TAKE AWAY* to get people to do what we wish. It is a form of soft diplomacy.

Not all interactions between countries are "Do what we say or we blow you up."

I'd say the Golden Age would be from 1950 to 2001.  I'd mark the decline of US at Bush's bogus election but I'd also be open to people who say it was March 19, 2003.
