    No shit. Currency debasement severely punishes having emergency savings or buying without accruing debt

    Not sure I agree with that. Assuming one puts their savings in the bank (or CDs), is there any evidence that the spread between inflation and interest on savings is lower under low or zero inflation than under high inflation?

    When I read it, I didn't think he was referring to interest rates, as much as the costs of goods and services. As they go up and consume a greater percentage of a person's disposable income, a lesser percentage is then available for saving. But, I don't mean to speak for Dan. Perhaps he means it how you understood it.

    Palin's I can see Russia statement is the false equivalent of Obama having been in 57 states

    I like to throw punches at Obama just as much as anyone, but CLEARLY, this was just a gaffe. He probably meant to say 47 and it came out 57. You cannot seriously sit there and think that Palin offers the same (or greater) mental horsepower as Obama? I'm not a fan of Obama, but I'm pretty sure that his little girl could beat Palin in a battle of wits. I cringe almost every time Palin opens her mouth. How about instead of trying to excuse her stupidity and pandering to the fringes of the GOP, we focus on getting quality conservative candidates out there? All we are doing by appealing to the fringes is shrinking our voter base. But by all means, keep promoting Palin's potential as a great leader. Of course, she'd have to be able to find her way to the White House... So make sure you write the address in sharpie on her arm so she doesn't forget the address again. (I used to put my cell number on the kids' arms whenever we went to amusement parks in case we got separated -- It works).

    Sarah Palin would have made a better President than Obama.

    Stop, stop... I'm gunna pee.

    CaptainShuddup says

    She hasn't been caught in any lies yet at least.

    So what you're saying is... She CAN see Russia from her house.

    I'm not so sure that replacing a Obama with a person who doesn't produce enough brainpower to lightly toast bread is a good tradeoff.

    Seriously, backing Palin will never help to forward conservative virtues. We just don't do much for the conservative cause when we hold up morons as our representatives. When you hold up a moron and say "this person best represents me," what are you saying about yourself? Sometimes, Captain, we just have to admit when we made a mistake. She was a mistake.... Though liberals must be dancing for joy at her existence, as people like her push the middle, en-masse, squarely over to the left. JMHO.
