Obama just authorized another two billion dollars, this time in aid to Brazil. Why is he spending money to fund infrastructure development in other countries? It's a sign of how bad things are that I saw the two billion dollar pricetag and thought, That's not that much money. Is the dollar even worth anything anymore? Does anyone know what a trillion dollars looks like? Multiple truckloads of thousand dollar bills. Glenn Beck is wrong about one thing when he says Obama's treasury is fabricating money like Germany in the 1920's: That government was minting Reichsmarks to pay off debts, while Obama is printing dollars to create them.
