    Rcart... here is a simple comparison. If you are maxed out on your credit cards, have a mortgage and car payments, and are spending more than you earn, see what happens when you walk into a bank and ask to increase your credit limits and loan amounts. Which one will cause you to leave the bank faster, the security escort, or the humiliation of being laughed out of the bank?

    And Sarah Palin is hardly the only politician who believes raising the debt ceiling is a bad idea. You're just trying to get in another quick Sarah Palin bash.

    If you just keep raising the debt ceiling Obama will not stop spending. It would take months to become a problem

    The bigger question is what is wrong with Obama and democrats that continue to spend spend spend?

    you left out the comparison of being able to print the world's dominant currency
    oops. then its not the same

    And Sarah Palin is hardly the only politician who believes raising the debt ceiling is a bad idea. You're just trying to get in another quick Sarah Palin bash.
    on that debt ceiling topic, this was an interesting observation by an informed washington insider:
    The investigative journalist who helped uncover the Watergate scandal said Thursday that the fight over raising the federal debt limited was a contrived debate, manufactured “particularly by Republicans.”

    who cares what Palin thinks, she not an economist. Even Austrian economist don't want the US to default.

    Re: Palin dismisses Geithner warnings about debt ceiling

    WTF is wrong with this picture? We have to pick sides between two people who have the collective IQ of a toilet seat and between them have zero experience working in the real world? How about you or I have more brains than either one of them? Geithner certainly has no idea what he is doing OR a more likely scenario, he knew damn well what he was doing when he schtupped America to fatten Goldman's ass. Geithner should be in jail. Period. No argument.

    Palin, please people. Can we get beyond the urban myth of Palin's somehow unproven brilliance that came from, well no one knows, and has been tested by, well Palin's intelligence is, as I said, an urban myth.

    So why in the name of all things holy should any suffering bastard believe in either one of those shysters?
