    Re: U.S. leaders strike debt deal to avoid default

    You may not be once you find out what they agreed to.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Its a weak deal, but its a start.
    It should be a trillion reduction per year.

    Very true. I guess they could read it and change their minds. Lets say indications are correct and it gets through.

    Re: Obama: We have a deal

    No one's going to back out. If either side sabotaged the deal, they'd take all the blame for screwing the economy.
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    Ah, the old Appeals to Belief & Emotion (socialism is bad!!!) mixed with the Slippery Slope (Universal Health Care => 1984 totalitarianism) and Straw Man (BS wants government to control everyone’s life) Fallacies.
