That's the idiotic thinking of some the 80% of Amerikans that do not have a passport. That is the way they see and hear the "rest of the world". Through a microscope, with a pinhole so small, the "rest of the world" does not even exist as far as they're concerned.
......Then our president was jetted off to Seoul to speak at the G-20 summit about money and speak his version of MONEY-ese.... (similar to Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese or any of the 'Neses, but different) and that's where nobody including "the rest of the world" truly understood a word he said. So much so in fact, "the rest of the world" namely Europe and China, told him to STFU, because it was obvious to them he had no business talking Money-ese because of the current state of currency in the USA which is NOT flowing like manna from heaven.
And you can take that thought to the bank.
Oh and one last thing. The "Rest of the world" is not putting up with what they pound into our heads here in America day after day after day....... And that is that the Whole World is in a state of financial disrepair. They are not. Some countries are really really prospering.
The "Rest of the Whole World" is no longer located in the epicenter of thinking where all things, and all democracy, all freedom and all money emanated from, and we all know where that used to be.....The USA (Or at least that's the impression one got if you lived here)....and that thought hurts....it hurts bad, but it's true.
