    Re: House passes debt ceiling agreement

    The tea party, like the 2010 midterms, is a bit like one of those magic eight balls. A conservative shakes it up, it produces a cryptic message, and the holder reads into it whatever he wanted the answer to be.

    Couple of thoughts here.

    The Debt Ceiling needed to be raised, end of story. So hopefully the senate should pass the bill tommorow, way to leave it to the last second guys.

    The deal is not the greatest thing in the world, its pretty pathetic. I think a better deal should be straightened out, however the can will be kicked down the road a little further, and we'll all have forgotten this whole thing by next week, after all, we have more important things to do.

    Good to see Gabrielle Giffords back, her bravery in the face of adversity is an inspiration to us all.

    Have a nice day.
    I have been predicting this would happen.. They'd do something in the last few minutes because NOBODY would want to take the blame if talks failed, so they shoved something through. It's BS. This is how our government works. Nobody wants to work with each other, so when it's a large bill, they'll never pass anything decent. Both parities just ****ing everything up as usual.

And a US that is going to remain on the sidelines in foreign policy is unimaginable. I have to see it to believe it. If it happens, another superpower will start sending troops (China? Russia? China and Russia together?) where the US will be forced to leave due to its lack of resources and funds. This is going to mark the beginning of a new world order. In my opinion, the debacle of the US is going to be steady and unstoppable.
    It's the beginning of the end of the US because instead of doing the impossible, they did some of what they could, and did not solve today a problem that doesn't have to be solved today.

    No, the beginning of the end was just a little over 10 years ago...12/12/00, when the Supreme Court made a very bad decision, which resulted in our deficits going from almost nothing to $1.2T per year.
