re: Iran moves away from US dollar in foreign trade - GumboPot
[quote]Either way, Germany appears to be waking up to a reality for which central banks around the world have been preparing: the dollar is no longer the world’s safe-haven asset and the US government is no longer a trustworthy banker for foreign nations. It looks like their fears are well-grounded,...

re: Obama Administration Opens Door to Atlantic Drilling - GumboPot
This is akin to the Justin Amash/Mike Lee wing of the the GOP issuing a draft plan on taxing the rich. Do you think the left would get excited? Probably not. They would just say, "oh those right wingers, covering themselves and providing a talking point rebuttal to a popular policy idea."...
