might affect Canada a bit since both economies are tied together with a lot of trade, but I am unsure what is going to happen on the third.

I participated in the poll, now I have time
to worry all weekend about whether I will
get my disability check or not. There are
so many in the same boat as myself.

Can't you just see all the seniors, vets
and those disabled clamping down on
Washington?

Hey!!! US and UK citizen, move to CANADA this is the best place on earth as of july 2011.
It takes 1.06 US$ to buy 1 can$ and you"ll have completely free medicare and if you do not have any pension fund, the federal government will send you about $2000.a month for the rest of your life.
Nobody here want to move somewhere else.
Criminality is down
Economy is up
People are friendly
People did move before you ( your father or grandpa ) to have a better life and better future for their children and yours.
We are not that far north. U2 was in Montreal 2 weeks ago, Paul McCartney perform in quebec city last week and Rod Stewart tonight and tomorrow
Just think about it.

In my opinion, it works two ways. One the US is in deficit mania right now, and two Obama is a sucker for campaign donations. I'm sure if a deal could be worked out, Obama could campaign with it.

You are mighty brave to say that, as there are many right-leaners who like to scream that you are "stealing" from them, -no matter what- is ailing you.

Just in case we find that we are forced to, me and a bunch of family members. (parent, siblings, in-laws) all ranging in age from near-mid-50's to mid '70s, have agreed to 'convoy' out East, and be protestors. Heyey, gonna have a revolution!

Im not American so im not bothered either way.

Our national news tells us that raisng the debt celing will only delay the inevitable so good luck with that

haha so what exactly do you think is going to happen to your country if this one crashes, i'm pretty sure the economy of whatever country you are in depends heavily on US contribution, so please don't act like this isn't going to effect everyone in the end.

jobs
telecommunication devices
computers
innovation
infrastructure

A public entity (Government or Corporation) only becomes rich because many people value it. If an entity is in great debt (see Government) its because people dont value it as much.

Prosperity is a measuring stick of societal value. Continually raising the debt ceiling is the attempt to increase value artificially, to make Government bigger instead of chunking it down (especially bureaucracy!).

If a government is in great debt it may be because certain people, factions, and corporations used their money and influence to lobby for tax cuts on themeselves while at the same time working towards overseas (expensive) operations that destroyed infrastructure that they then overcharged to rebuild.

See, there's always more than one way to skin a cat.

One question that was missing in the poll, was:

How badly does hearing the term "adult in the room" over and over make you want to gouge your own eyes out with one of those spoons used to eat grapefruits?

Put me down for "Very badly".

I think the whole thing is horse apples. None of it matters. They know what they want and they know the outcome. More of us being worse off then we already are.

Only after they all had a good laugh about one of their cell phones going off (if I had all that lobbyist money, I'd buy a better ringtone). Cell phones going off at inappropriate times are always funny, even on the eve of armageddon.

They're all such freaking clowns. I hope they do drive it all into the ground, sometimes it takes a forest fire to clear all the brush and refresh the forest.

It was probably a bookie or something, afterall he's a politician in NV....

The sign BO is holding up should read: Hi mom and dad send money. It is a good poll, it leans the way you answer the questions.

Oooh good stuff, thanks.

However, I note the second row of options is as follows:

Very Satisfied Satisfied Neutral Unsatisfied Very Unsatisfied

Is this the way it should be ? All the others are "agree/disagree" . It was a little confusing.

Will look forward to contributing further in this thread but wanted to get that out there.


Silent thunder, your avatar is exactly what a few scholars said is how Democracy (where a Republic Democracy) dies and ends. Our democracy is gone not going but gone, what is left is people picking the bones so they can enrich themselves at the expense of the country and others. The I got mine so F everybody else is the slogan for the day.
