4. Wow, he's right on all counts

especially that the Republicans will try to engineer the crash in 2016. What they will end up doing since they are utterly inept and their puppet masters will be hurt the worst by the next crash (which will likely be the crumbling of the derivatives casino) is set the wheels in motion so that whoever gets stuck with the presidency in 2017 will face it in his first term.

The dollar amounts on that derivatives casino should scare the hell out of all of us because they will take everything we have with them when they evaporate into the thin air they always were. Those billionaires will be down to mere millions by the time the dust clears, a good thing because they will feel too impoverished to keep buying crooks in Congress.

Republicans have no choice in this since they've backed themselves into a corner and are governed entirely by spite against a Democratic president. Their masters will start having some second thoughts by early 2016 and they'll start pulling back a bit and that will delay the crash, but not by much.

While I would love to see one of their crashes dumped squarely into the lap of one of the corrupt bastards they keep putting into office, I know that bastard would have no clue what to do about any of it but scream about Democrats and the country will suffer more horribly than it should, the same way it did when Hoover got it dumped into his lap.

I don't know why people get so greedy and stupid every 60-80 years and let the thieves back in, I just know how it happens and what happens when they've been in there long enough. They've been in longer than usual this time because god. No god is going to save any of them from the consequences.
