This is precious, all the caving in to avoid a rating cut and it happened anyway. The pres's only ticket is class warfare and repubs can't even put together a retort. Oh and the debt clock shows 14.578 trillion. That extra 78 billion over our Tuesaday limit will be cut by the first year of debt reduction by 20 billion, that's right the only cuts next year are 20 billion, good bye America.

America isn't going anywhere.

It's our government that's going to go for a walk...to the end of a vertical leash. Hang the fuckers.

Specifically, the congressmen who have spent our money without the express consent or approval of the people who elected them,
and failed to formulate a viable plan to ensure long-term solvency.

I'm anticipating Monday's stock market performance to be a real tighten-your-seat-belts moment. But it will end up with some huge
buying opportunities coming out of it.

If the President and the leadership of the house and senate had a shred of real character and integrity, instead of being nothing but partisan, craven, power-hungry, self-serving thieves of our kids' futures, they would resign in shame for their incompetence. This is inexcusable, and we need an immediate change in the White House, cabinet, and control of the house & senate. We need strict, short term limits, a balanced budget amendment, an immediate cease to all perquisites and benefits that make being a U.S. Senator or Representative a gravy-train-for-life "job". We need a raise in the age all citizens can collect social security to 75 yrs old for anyone presently 55 or younger (55 and above don't change from present rules) - and the age of eligibility for benefit collection should increase by a year for each year that our average life expectancy rises after 2015. We need an immediate stop to all health benefits paid to illegal aliens, and a repeal and ceremonial burning of the Obamacare health plan that accelerated this entire death spiral toward economic insolvency into warp drive. I vote "no confidence" in this government. This is not the "change" we needed.

So at what point does our current system become irrelevant as it fails to function?
