    Re: Are we screwed?

    I voted Other, Because regardless of what these idiots do either way we are screwed. The only fix is a complete and utter collapse and start over. kinda like a reset ram clear on your computer. The economy is saturated with toxic paper and Unfunded liabilities. It will not recover without a bottoming out and reset. Just sayin!
    The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them. Patrick Henry

    Re: Are we screwed?

    Aug. 2nd is an artificial deadline, so we're not totally screwed, and in fact I think it's best that we don't meet our obligations and let the rest of the world understand what utter ****-nobs we have running our government. We'll still pay our debts even if no agreement is passed, it just a matter of what will suffer for it.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
