    Yeah, American governments don't have the balls to significantly raise taxes or cut spending these days, you know, the whole fiscal responsibility thing. What, cut our ridiculously large and wasteful military?? Never!

    thanks, my friend

    i appreciate your perspective

    but they're gonna need 60

    and i saw the disposition of 13 of em, i'm pretty sure it was 13...

    yeah, it was 13, i just googled, who opposed reid on the doc fix

    Senate Hands Reid a Defeat on ‘Doc Fix’ - Roll Call

    bayh, dorgan, lieberman, feingold, wyden, tester, byrd, conrad, mccaskill, BILL nelson, kohl and both virginians, warner and combat boots webb

    i've kinda come to know these guys, and i can't see em going there

    the raising of the ceiling is a lot like the fix in that they're both totally unaccounted for, pure deficit

    and in times as cold as those in massachusetts, y'know

    i really don't think they'll get it

    we'll see

    keep up the good work, friend scarecrow

    Woohoo! Another 2 Trillion down the toilet. I tell ya between 2 wars each costing us about a Trillion, a couple of bailouts each going for about 700 Billion, and some pending health care legislation that's bound to cost us at least a few Trillion... well eventually we're gonna have to start spending some real money.

    You know who I feel bad for? The Chinese. We've borrowed Billions from those schmucks and they're not getting any of it back. Suckers! They don't understand capitalism. Rule 1. Don't loan money to people that need it.

    lol, so true! America is going to declare national bankruptcy one of these days, then China is going to be ****ed. Then if China and America are ****ed, so is at least half the world's economy....

    China's going to get something for their debts. Don't you worry.

    Like I said the economy was booming when Bush raised the ceiling. He should have been paying down the debt.

    Why are you blaming the last administration? How about Congress?
