Lewis Black: It's the End of an Empire sale and everything must go
Raw story -http://rawstory.com//news/2008/Lewis_Black_Weak_dollar_...

"We're so hard up for cash, we're dismantling America and selling it for scrap," Black lamented. "The Chrysler Building -- going once, going twice, sold. Abu Dhabi bought the skyscraper for $800 million."

1. We Should Auction Off Bush and Cheney
I bet they'd bring in the shekels. Everybody wants a piece of them!

3. and this is good: (from your link)
As his second example, Black pointed out that "this $95 million oceanfront mansion once owned by Donald Trump was just bought by a Russian fertilizer mogul" -- who may tear it down to build something else. "Wow," Black exclaimed. "Trump's design esthetic is even tacky to a guy who sells shit for a living!"

"It's a little sad that Americans don't come through and buy things like this," was Trump's own comment on the sale.

"Oh, we can buy homes like that," Black noted. "We just can't pay for them."
