Total government debt in the US is at 312% of GDP, which is well past the point of collapse for any country.

...

All of the $5.5 trillion owed by the US Federal government in 1996 was found by the Brookings Institute to be because of $5.5 trillion in costs for US nuclear weapons from 1940 to 1996. Since 1996, the military / intelligence budgets (including war costs) have averaged $0.85 trillion a year. $0.85 trillion x 20 years plus $5.5 trillion equals $22.5 trillion.

... The Roman Empire declined and fell due to excessive military costs. The US empire will decline and fall if military/intel/war/secret police costs are not reigned in. Eliminating money in politics, via public financing of elections, is needed as is effective oversight of wall street. Unregulated hedge fund vultures and wall street bankers writing hundreds of trillions of dollars in derivatives without the money to pay and without any oversight is a recipe for financial collapse in the USA.

A thorough investigation of the Fed will show once and for all if its former chief Ben Bernanke and current Chairwoman Yellen should go to jail.

...

[After the August 24th plunge,] the same magical buying of S&P futures contracts happened Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. Stocks again went up at the opening on Wednesday, but this time the gain held.

...

"Once again, the Federal Reserve helped save the day for investors," the New York Times wrote in a front-page article that cited Dudley's speech.

But that wasn't true -- not unless Dudley's speech leaked ahead of time. Stocks were up before Dudley's talk and actually fell when he began speaking. That was probably due to the fact that Dudley pooh-poohed the idea of another dose of QE.

... with at least 35 of the nation's cities reporting increases in murders, violent crimes or both, according to a recent survey, the spikes are raising alarm among urban police chiefs. The uptick prompted an urgent summit meeting in August of more than 70 officials from some of the nation's largest cities. A Justice Department initiative is scheduled to address the rising homicide rates as part of a conference in September.

... Less debated [than the race-hate theory] is the sense among police officials that more young people are settling their disputes, including one started on Facebook, with guns.

... "That is not a situation that can be solved by policing," Superintendent Harrison said. "It speaks to a culture of violence deeply ingrained into a community -- a segment of the population where people are resolving their problems in a violent way."

... "I have to find a way for these young kids to understand that they have a stake in society," said Mr. Barrett [the Mayor of Milwaukee], who has met with pastors, community leaders and others to discuss the killings.

... "Everybody's struggling out here, trying to stay afloat, with no jobs, no opportunities," said Bethann Maclin, whose 13-year-old daughter stays mostly inside these days. "The violence won't end. Where do you start?"
