A recent conversation with a friend consisted of:
“Don’t you think the Tea Party has kinda screwed things up between the Democrats and Republicans? They used to be able to work things out between each other and now they can’t.”
“The Tea Party screwed things up? The Tea Party didn’t exist while the D’s and R’s created the financial fiasco that’s headed straight for the American taxpayer. A better description of what’s happening is that the Tea Party adults have come into the bedroom of the D’s and R’s, pulled out all of the unpaid bills from under the mattresses, beds, rugs, stuck in toy boxes and any place they could think of to put them out of sight and told the children to clean their rooms!”
Well after that rant I’d like to share this horrific article of what has led and continues to lead this nation into the greatest potential depression ever known. This is not just a problem for our nation, it’s going to be a global problem. Come to think of it, that’s partly how we got here, isn’t it? This article comes courtesy of “The Onion” and I wish to warn you that Bernanke is finally speaking the truth even if it isn’t pretty.

Drunken Ben Bernanke Tells Everyone At Neighborhood Bar How Screwed U.S. Economy Really Is
AUGUST 3, 2011 | ISSUE 47•31
The intoxicated Federal Reserve chairman informs bar patrons of the dangers of reckless spending.
SEWARD, NE—Claiming he wasn't afraid to let everyone in attendance know about "the real mess we're in," Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke reportedly got drunk Tuesday and told everyone at Elwood's Corner Tavern about how absolutely fucked the U.S. economy actually is.
Bernanke, who sources confirmed was "totally sloshed," arrived at the drinking establishment at approximately 5:30 p.m., ensconced himself upon a bar stool, and consumed several bottles of Miller High Life and a half-dozen shots of whiskey while loudly proclaiming to any patron who would listen that the economic outlook was "pretty goddamned awful if you want the God's honest truth."
"Look, they don't want anyone except for the Washington, D.C. bigwigs to know how bad shit really is," said Bernanke, slurring his words as he spoke. "Mounting debt exacerbated—and not relieved—by unchecked consumption, spiraling interest rates, and the grim realities of an inevitable worldwide energy crisis are projected to leave our entire economy in the shitter for, like, a generation, man, I'm telling you."
