Back then, I often read arguments by various gold bugs and libertarian-leaning economists about how the U.S. dollar was on a path to total destruction.

At least two nations have brazenly begun developing nukes since Obama took up residence in the White House. So… how’s that world without nukes working out for you, Mr. President?
Two recent news items indicate the Nazification of America continues apace. First, a report in The Daily broke the news that the Department of Homeland Security plans to begin testing portable DNA scanners this summer.
