A Googleplex for Everybody?

A Googleplex is simply 1 with 1 million zeroes after it.  With that kind of money there isn't anything (or anyone ahem) you couldn't buy in America.

Since so many on the LEFT side of the ideological spectrum think that deficits and debt doesn't matter worth a hill of beans.....  That the Debt Ceiling is a silly thing that should be eliminated...Even Geithner suggested that.

If that is so....

Why not institute a brand new dollar bill in the amount of 1 GOOGLEPLEX and print roughly 350 million of them.....sending 1 to whomever would like one.

That way.....Everyone is a GOOGLEPLEX-ionairre.

Everybody is happy.

Good times!


But yet here we are talking about tax hiking the 2% so that then we can do ........something.......with that.

Something......but what though?    America can just PRINT more money...... America can just BORROW more money..... Why on earth should we even care about tax hikes??

Heck......  Why care about TAXES?????  PERIOD????? At least on the federal level.   States do not have the ability to print money.

The Federal Government can just PRINT itself $16.5 trillion and use the printed cash to pay off its debt in 1 fell swoop.....  To enter some accounts and electronically add some zeroes.

Sure seems simple enough.....

And yet here we sit back and forth talking pointlessly about some sorta Fiscal Cliff I know the liberals couldn't care less about.

What gives?

Don't you want a GOOGLEPLEX?

No joking when I wrote this.... think about it....

Our currency isn't backed by gold...silver.....or even bubble gum.

It's backed by nothing more than the fact that no one has the balls to declare all out WAR on America....invade it.....destroy it.....and then start ripping apart all of the natural resources underneath our feet....

All in the pursuit of getting their money back from buying up all our debt....

Until America gets its butt handed to it in a massive War.....

The reality is it appears we can do whatever we feel like...

Sure....Credit Ratings Agencies can step in and downgrade America's currency and bond ratings to JUNK STATUS....

But what will that accomplish?

Short of some spectacular declaration of war from a foreign country.....America can do whatever it wants as long as our currency is considered the "World Currency" by which all other currencies are valued against.

And....We have so many resources at our disposal we can actually be 100% dependant on only our own natural resources....Never caring iOTA of who doesn't want to sell what to us....

But why would CHINA declare war on AMERICA?   They need us to buy their crap....their manufactured stuff....

And if CHINA isn't interested in destroying us......

Who is?

Your plan is correct, except that only the very wealthy and well-connected have been able to vote themselves a Googleplex.

Let's take Angelo Mozilo.  His company, Countrywide, nearly bankrupted the US, pioneering irresponsible lending practices which eventually required a $3 trillion bailout.  His company went bankrupt and he had to step down in shame because of his malfeasant deeds.

His reward? A net worth of $600 million.

Whenever I hear this story, I think to myself, "Yes, I too would like to trash a large-cap lending corporation with poor management, and set in motion a chain of events that will result in thousands of foreclosures across the nation and nearly bankrupt the U.S. economy.  But I'm competitive at market rates.  I'd do it for $400 million!"

Al-Qaeda has effectively declared all out war on America and has indirectly led to the creation of trillions of dollars of deficits resulting from wars conducted in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade for which our children will pay for in the form of higher taxes. 

16.5 trillion in accumulated national debt will lead to cuts in education and healthcare which will make us less competitive and healthy compared to other nations. Endless stimulus will push our prices for food and gas up faster than our wages and access to credit. This reality will hamstring 70% of our economy in the form of  depressed consumption which will dampen GDP growth for years to come.

Ten years from now China will be the world's biggest economy and the U.S will not present the same threat/challenge/end market that it once was. Nations will start growing balls and start directly testing our position in the world as a result.

I hope I'm wrong.
