Charlie Rose gave hour long interview to chairs from presidents deficit commission.
The two chairs names are Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson.
I don’t see PBS giving time to economist Dean Baker who can punch holes in these mens arguments all day long.
The arguments are false because their is no in depth discussion about military spending or the trillion dollar bail outs to the bankers..
The only ones to sacrifice in this game are the bulk of the American people

Been running the streets since 1978. Been running the streets of the city my whole life, middle class working class white boy from the city.
Playing hoops, drinking beer,doing what ever, I cleaned up grew and got away from all that , as I cleaned up one of my early jobs was driving a cab , then I got into various jobs from construction to IT and and few points in between.
Now that the bottom fell out of the economy I am back on the streets in my border class, mining the streets for a little survival money, while I attend school and wait for the economy to gradually improve again.
Sergio Martinez Ko’d Paul Williams tonight with a sensational knockout punch in their Middle Weight fight.
Martinez kept his world title. The fight was fought at Atlantic City NJ , on televised on HBO.
Deficit commission loaded with Wall Street and Corporate insiders .
Interest groups already responsible for majority of the financial crisis we are in today
Now they want to fix the crisis on the backs of the American people by attacking Social Security and Medicare.
Contact your Congress person or Senator and tell them don’t touch Social Security or Medicare.
If they want to save money break up the too big to fail banks..and stop the free give away of tax payer money to Wall Street.
The rule of the few over the many(word has Greek origin) is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small segment of society.
Plutocracy is rule by the wealthy, or power provided by wealth. The combination of both plutocracy and oligarchy is called plutarchy (word also has Greek origin).
Is a political form of government in which governing power is derived from the people.
The Chinese threat is different than Soviet threat in that Soviet threat was external and there was money to be made by internal wealthy(US) using hyped Soviet threat as way to make more money.
Chinese conundrum is one were the internal wealthy (US) are enticed , tempted , corrupted by perceived wealth and power of dealing with Chinese elite who are pimping out their massive and under payed work force to US elite along with , potentially allowing US elite access to Chinese market.
Chinese elite are aware of the weakness to this temptation by their US counterparts and holding out those carrots to gain real economic strength in the form of access to US markets, factories, and technology transfers that translate into real economic value, power, and eventually military power.
The US is like the crack addict who thinks he can play with the drug on the weekend and not get addicted and the Chinese are like the crack dealer who offers a few free hits of the crack to the get the user addicted and then control of the users life.
US needs to be in a 12 step program for giving up it’s national sovereignty.
There are definitely traitorous powerful economic interests lobbying for policies that will lead to a further weakening of the US these interests do this for their own selfish gains of wealth and power.
Coming soon a piece about Australia moving towards China’s orbit..
Sneaky Chinese thought they was getting over on stupid USA by stealing US industries with help of corrupt US elite, when all of sudden the US Cowboy gangsters do the drug rip off move and pay back Chinese with the fake wampum(cash debased and printed by the trillion by federal reserve).Get ready for the coming G20 showdown at ok corral..
US version of globalization will die with the death of the dollar as , we slowly head to currency chaos and new trading blocs forming.
