    “All right, we’ll call it a draw”…
    And the sad thing is that the establishment (moderate) republicans did it. Great cartoon, Gary!

    God there is a lot of truth here, Obama Care is blowing up already, staying shut would not cause a default and our leaders caved to the polls.

    Little bit of history, we have defaulted twice, first during the war of 1812, we issued additional bounds at higher interest rate to bond holders. It was paid with in the year, second was during the Carter years, some sort of administrative snafu, we did the same thing costing us billions of dollars; in 1979 dollars.

    Really not sure what that means with this level of debt though.

    GOP waste lands. Texas is going like crazy, Detroit is the Democratic wasteland. California and Illinois are deep in debt, and how many of Illinois governors have gone to jail in the past twenty five years.

    50% or so, but that include quite a few Republicans.

    Oh yeah, and all a default this time would cause is a worldwide economic meltdown, and a bunch of investors thinking that maybe the dollar isn’t such a safe investment or monetary standard after all, which would likely obliterate our economy, perhaps irrevocably.
    But hey, so long as you get to prove a point to that commie socialist Kenyan usurper, it’s all okay, right?

    You may be right on the first part but what of “Really not sure what that means with this level of debt though”, don’t you understand. So why are you worried now about America’s economic standing, is it because it may make you lose something you want.

    As for your race baiting I was never part of the Kenyan crowd.

    Not sure who skyscraper city or State Masters are but what are their criteria, if it involves aid you may be right. We have produced more jobs here than just about anywhere in the country so that is a pretty good place to be. California and Illinois has debt, Texas has a surplus.

    Who would buy these bonds? How many would be needed to be purchased? You think the global wars are not costing us as much or more than aiding most of America medically?

    “$16 trillion in debt said, 5 minutes ago
    Another democrat dressed as a Republican by the lamestream media.”
