As dollar tumbles, America is up for grabs
Barry Artiste Op/Ed
Warren Buffet, Gazillionaire extraordinairre pretty much sums it all up, the US is pretty much up for grabs.
One only has to look at the Asia Pacific photo ops with Western World leaders to witness Obama and ours truly Prime Minister Harper dressed in Asian Finery and not dressed in North American clothes when talking Free Trade, guess Free Trade works only one way, the Asian way. I guess when you have to Kowtow to the Big Boys like China, dressing in their traditional Mao style clothes pretty much says it all to please your monetary masters. Thank Christ, Canada is not beholden to China when it comes to China owning your country in trillions and trillions in treasury bills. If we are not careful Canada may one day be a mirror image of the US debt.
Outside, the sky was bleak and the snow was drifting. But inside the meeting hall in Toronto's financial district, the mood was warm, as it usually is when Warren Buffett is in the house – even on those occasions when he's spreading a message of fear.
It was February, 2008. The U.S. economy had slipped into a funk and the markets were rattled, but the world's second-wealthiest man said little to indicate he had a clue about the panic and the chaos that would arrive in months ahead. He didn't see it coming.
