They will seek another tax payer funded bailout (more material for OWS).

Sensationalism much? And US banks have no where near as bad exposure to Euro debt as European banks.

Yet, not a single Canadian bank received a dime from the taxpayer during the world crisis. Here, we have ever more socialism happening in the USA via taxpayer 'bailouts' of the US banks. *ROTFLMAO @ dumb**** Americans calling Canada a 'socialist country'*

If this happens I don't see the Americans too well. I do believe many haven't yet recovered from the previous problems and another kick would be pretty nasty for the people. I find it pretty annoying that people are left homeless if they can't afford to respect their contracts, but the big players are getting a totally undeserved 'pity' from the State. But, as our saying in Romania goes 'equality is not for puppies'

I was lucky enough to get our home paid off before the bubble burst. We don't have much money. We no longer have credit cards, our only bills are for lights, gas, and water. So we have no bills that carry interest. If we did we would be in trouble.

I think you are misunderstanding what is happening. Also, who is "we" here? The US has an interest in not seeing the EU collapse. And last, but not least, do you have a source for the 59 trillion figure.

A healthy europe is good for america, that is true. Here is a small example of what has happened in europe. 8 towns in norway bought 200 million in high yield bonds from Citigroup. Money they borrowed from local banks, as investments, backed by 10 years of reciepts from hydroelectric plants. The AAA bonds are now worth 0. This happened all over europe. Now the investment banks have sold you all on zero amortization loans, so the countries payments are small while their princible grows, europe is worse off than you realize.

I am not denying anything here. I am asking you for proof of what you are saying. Where are you getting that figure from?

Well Norway isn't in trouble right now. And 200 million is not a lot in terms of the severity of the EU's current problems just as most other bad housing investments are not the major component of the fiscal problems.

Yeah, and then Norway sued. If you're so supposed use an example of the hard times Europe are going through, why do you choose Norway? It's probably the only country in Europe that has managed to keep itself isolated from this crisis.

Thank you for smacking this hysterical hippie in the mouth myp. There is no need for concern (at least not yet). The debt ceiling has been raised, but without question US expenditure must go down to keep debt payments sustainable.

So long as the US government can continue making its repayments, the world's largest and most important economy will continue to grow (albeit slowly), and will be the bedrock for global economic stability.
