- Because everyone's worried about Europe's unsustainable massive deadly disastrous pile of debt.
- Gold hit a new high today! That's how you know shit is fucked up.
- And don't even get us started on the looming student loan default disaster.
- The culprit? The villain? The reason for all of our pain and trouble? You, the consumer.
