    Destroy the economy?
    I didn’t hear a single person at the office or at lunch even mention the government shutdown. Which btw was caused by the Democrats once again refusing to pass a budget.
    Maybe some of those 900,000 “non-essential” employees (whatever that means) should take a permanent vacation.

    Only the Democratic Senate DID pass a budget. And only 21 Republicans voted to support a filibuster (but then 44 voted against the budget).


    AND the Republican House passed a budget.


    But in the US system, when the two budgets ain’t the same, neither one counts.


    So here we are.

    You can’t look beyond your own nose, can you? If the shutdown is not lifted, what are the chances of a debt limit increase? I know that Faux News downplays that as well but you will see, you will see…

    And the best thing: i am sitting on the other side of the pond and STILL will be affected! I can remember my granny telling me about 1928-1936. IT WASN’T PRETTY! And this time around it might be worse. I hope anybody screwing around with raising the debt limit gets cancer!

    Remember the Hastert-rule! Boehner is only allowed to bring bills to the floor that the GOP can win ON THEIR OWN, and with 60 members of the TEA-party caucus this could go horribly wrong. And once the genie is out of the box it can not be put back in! Ever seen the world economy collapse at – literally – the speed of light (fiber optics)?

    Stay across the pond, you hateful thing. …funny how people that pretend they care about people, keep wishing their opponent’s cancer. You pig.

    It does when (1) government-funded projects don’t happen, undermining planned operations, (2) we don’t pay our national debt and we can’t borrow more at the same rates (increasing debt, etc…

    So you have us believe that since we are not spending money on the Panda cam at the zoo and barring WWII Vets the memorial is going to shoot the economy in the head? i know that we just had the 5th “summer of recovery” but I think the dept ceiling collapse under the phony money Obama has been pumping into the bubble is going to be more harm.
    But Obamacare will hurt 16% of our GDP. But yeh, the Democrats and Obama will be OK with that, 75% of what they should pay for it will be exempt, so they can “afford” the care. That IS What Obama and his followers VOTED FOR. That Is why OBAMA shut down the government!

    Should read Democrat on that hat given the voting in Congress in the last few days.

    The country is living on borrowed $$. We are taking in about 200 billion a month, and spending much, much more, about 325 billion. Meanwhile, we are paying about 35 billion a month on “debt maintenance.” (Interest only @ avg 2.5 % -2012) If today’s artificially low interest rates go to historic 20 year normals – close 5.75%, about 1/3 of our “income” will be consumed by our “minimum credit card payment.” Massive draconian cuts or bankruptcy will be the only path forward.

    Erskine Bowles forecasts over 1 trillion in yearly interest expense by 2020. (83 billion per month.)

    If an average US family went to a bank with this income and liability statement, percentage wise – they couldn’t get a $100 loan.

    Obviously, we can’t continue this forever. And the modest cuts proposed now, will look like a brush burn, compared to a leg amputation then.

    We have to destroy the village in order to destroy it.

    Good analogy, but how many will remember how well that worked out.

    There are two groups of republicans one is the ones that do not want women to become like miley or a cigar holder. And two the ones that want the government taxing us to death and giving out money to the people that sit on their buttts (kind of like England use to do ) And do not see where trying to lower the debt so our great grand children so not have to pay for the pension of government employees

    That Is why OBAMA shut down the government!
    .
    It’s fascinating to observe how conservatives like follow twisted premises and ignorance to illogical conclusions. Obama shut down the government? Really? Thanks, I needed a laugh this morning.

    He doesn’t care. He’d rejoice to see his “fellow” Americans dying in the streets if he had the opportunity to blame it on the people he hates.
