Thank you! What did they think would be the result of the credit downgrade? They all scream and moan about "president downgrade" but never connect the dots on the ruination of the dollar. Record, gas, food and energy prices ensue in a vacuum? Completely de-coupled from the ever shrinking dollar? The Fed keeps printing money and holding rates down but that has NOTHING to do with prices? These are the "smartest guys in the room"? Hardly! That's a lot of questions, but you have to use a lot of questions when talking to stupid people like Bill and Lou.
