    Yep, thatís why some Republicans are now demanding a balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution.

    I think most seniors get it.... Country defaults, they are screwed. Obama gives in to republicans so they will sign the deal, seniors are screwed.

    That’s pure leftist propaganda.

    If we raise the debt ceiling there is a jolly good chance there will be a big push by China to make the Yen the world standard in currency. If that happens, nothing would be able to save us then. Then we turn into 1930's Germany. The Democrats need a history lesson, $28,000 Marks for a loaf of bread.

    So on one hand, the Cons are crying that Obama won't talk to them.

    On the other hand, "COMPROMISE MEANS THE END OF AMERICA!!!"

    I wonder what's wrong with politics these days....

    I can give you an example of his leadership but it’s way more fun to watch liberals squirm and try to think of an example on their own.

    By the way, criticism is not leadership.

    rightwingers criticizing rightwingers = leadership
    leftwingers criticizing leftwingers = not leadership

    Oh, I know. Let's start senior islands, maybe in space, so once they've outlived their usefulness, they can retire to some logical "Out of sight, out of mind" place and be euthanized once they become too expensive to maintain.

    Govt run islands for seniors? That sounds a little too much like socialism. The wingnuts will never go for it.

    But we have to dispose of them/us somehow (I'm 53, my day is coming). I do like the space station idea. Safer than here.

    I think they'd be more likely to go for something like a Cage Fighting to the Death for seniors. They can make money by selling the tv rights. The "Keep the govt hands off of my Medicare" crowd will eat it up,
