America has been in decline for decades. Unfortunately there seems to be no way for us to stop bleeding red ink.

At least Toyota can stand on its on feet. Government Motors and Chrysler will probably need another bailout the next time a financial crisis happens.

People investing in imaginary money. Liberals poopoo precious metals, an investment that has been around for millennia, as a store or wealth, but went crazy over a fad like Bitcoin.

Apparently, the Russians have no fear of the West.

Whether Putin is doing this out of genuine interest and concern for ethnic Russians in Crimea, or if he's just taking a lesson from the Adolph Hitler playbook, the US should stay out of the whole affair.

More of the American government pretending to be selfless and on the moral high ground. Our commitment to Ukraine is so strong that we sent a whole TWO ships. We don't have a snowball's chance in Hell of beating Russia.

Why is America getting involved? We don't have the money for this crap. Let the Europeans handle it.

I don't think the West should do anything. Crimea wants to be part of Russia, so be it.

The West isn't going to do anything. America and the Europeans don't fight people who can actually defend themselves.
jeff198527Mar. 07, 2014 - 08:45AM JST
Sanctions?!? More like the West kicking and screaming like a two-year old. Russia seems to be the only country in Europe that has a pair.

Educator60, I agree 110%. No man is an island. We all use government services. Taxes don't always equal tyranny. Think of them as a fee for living in a civilized society.

With the devaluation of currencies across the globe it's better to stick with precious metals and the currencies of financially sound countries than on some digital abstraction.

The US military is exhausted from being in the Middle East for more than a decade. All the US government can do is issue empty threats. As an American I believe it's in our best interests to stay out of this mess.

The CBO says that the US debt will "become unstable" around the middle of next decade and "spiral out of control" by the early 2030s. Either we do something about this now or we pay for decades of mismanagement in the not-too-distant future.
