Don't Cry for Me, Argentina

So we all should be alarmed at China's rumblings about changing global reserve currencies, but not for the reason Michelle Bachmann fears. Um, if the dollar is no longer the world reserve currency, we're going to look like Argentine. World reserve currency does not = mandated national currency.

And by the way, she really pisses me off. If a liberal said half the things she said, they would have been carted off for an interview with the FBI. I mean if you can get called a traitor for peacefully opposing a war, what is a person who calls for a "controlled revolution" only 60 days into the new administration and five months after the election? And it's not Marxist, my dear, to let tax breaks sunset. That was written into law by Republicans when they passed Bush's tax cuts eight years ago.You can blame yourself since you voted for it. And Obama's not exactly calling for the, oh, 90 percent marginal tax rates of the Eisenhower era, for instance.
