I’m ready to see us exceed the debt ceiling and see what will happen.
Greece seems to be doing okay, Spain and Portugal are still clicking along. I’m pretty sure Ireland and Iceland are still there. Us? Talk about too big to fail.
Minnesota, last I heard has not slide under Wisconsin, which hasn’t slide into Lake Michigan.
I did like the President’s line today that it’s time to “eat our peas.” But his buds and their opposition only want dessert in the way of scoring points with those they see likely to vote for them next year.
On the left, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are off the table. On the right, that’s pretty much all we can cut from, and no tax increases on anyone, anytime, for any reason.
Boys and girls, that ain’t going to cut it.
Maybe a double dip recession will help for those of us with jobs. Think about it, the markets will tank again and you can ride them back up (assuming you get out in the next week or so). If the markets crash, gas will probably go back down with them.
The poor, the halt and the weak? They’ll still be around, in about the same shape as they were before the default same as in Greece, Portugal, Spain, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The boys and girls in Washington will eventually cobble something together, fixing none of the structural problems, same as they did a couple of years ago to “fix” the most recent recession.
Then for a few years we can go back to our desperate, or not too bad, lives till the next time our representatives let things get to yet another crisis.
