I listen to Mark Lavin on the radio, and he calls Hillary Clinton "Her Thighness". Recently (about a month or two ago), she spoke with the Chinese regarding the bonds that they've been purchasing from us (thank you, guys). Here's what I think happened:
Chinese: "We no buy more bonds till you ra-eese taxes."
Her Thighness: "Ok, we'll tax the companies doing business in the Cayman Islands. That's politically possible."
Chinese: "And you have to stop a fast fall in the bond price. We want a chance to get out, too."
Her Thighness: "Well, ok. There's a rule we can change regarding 'fails'. That should do the trick to slow down the market."
Chinese: "We want something tan-gee-ble in case of default. We want this theeng you call 'eminent domain'."
Her Thighness: "I don't care. ok. you got it. How will California do? or maybe Hawaii?"
I'm keeping a close eye on the concessions she gave them. They have us all under their thumb.
