Obviously another link in Barrack Hussein Obama bin-Laden Farrakhan's agenda to disarm Christian America and force Moslim slavery.

The headline seems much more ominous than the supporting details of the article suggest. Unlike a business, a government will still take in money when the people aren't willing to freely give it. Insolvency is also not a problem when you are able to continue to operate from a fiscal deficit position. Bond obligations are funded before capital expenditures as well, so they are far safer than commercial stock based funds.

Definitely an interesting article.
