74 and tweva, I personally think that the GOP now controls the purse(budget, cash or whatever yo want to call it). So yes the crash of the economy mat still happen but we have just got some more time.
There are many thing in play that has slowed the crash down, 1. gas prices which will bring down food. 2. Oil exploration in the U. S. has gone though the roof and if they approve the keystone pipeline then that will keep oil down for a long time. 3. Corp tax reform which will happen, not as good as what the GOP want but Obama will sign it.
4. The stock market likes all of this and is going up. 5. Gold and Silver have gone down which means the dollar is still up and will take more time to crash.
So there is my 2 cents.
