“”I’m very concerned we’re headed down the same path as Greece,” Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., told Fox News. “Greece found itself in a situation where its public debt was 113 percent of its GDP.

“The cultural embrace of illusion, and the celebrity culture that has risen up around it, have accompanied a growing system of casino capitalism, with its complicated and unregulated deals of turning debt into magical assets, to create fictional wealth for us, and vast wealth for our elite.

“don’t forget the difference between U3 (steady at 9.7%), U6 (rose to 16.9%) or even John Williams’ SGS Alternate, which presumable has stayed near 22%. + 162,000 may be the best number in three years” Statistics rarely show the truth of reality.
