I Figured I would take a minute and write a few words about the supposed financial armageddon that is headed our way.
I think it's pretty funny that most Americans are running around with their "sky is falling" panic pandemic pants on. And I felt that it was a good
opportunity to tell people to put your umbrella's away because it was an acorn that is hitting us on the head.
Does anyone realize that we have been raising the debt ceiling for a very long time. And for some reason this particular time is different from the
the others. Why?
Well I'm gonna tell ya. We Americans are starting to realize that government spending is not only out of control but it has been mishandled, abused
and stolen from the American people. Yes that would be you. But this is business as usual. I'm here to tell you that no matter what congress does,
whether they raise the debt ceiling or not nothing is going to change. Did you hear me!!! Nothing is going to change.
If we default on our (The governments) debt, we will pay more taxes. The dollar will lose it's value, stock market will crash, our credit rating will
fall to a new low.
If we don't default and raise the debt ceiling. we will pay more taxes, the dollar will lose it's value, stock market will crash and our credit rating
will fall to a new low.
Wanna know what the big difference is between raising the debt ceiling and not raising the debt ceiling.
Raise the debt ceiling.
Well we all get a social security check, military gets paid. And the Gov will stop Fear Mongering because Obama now has his money to wage more war.
Don't raise the debt ceiling.
We don't get social security checks, the military still gets paid. (they are the number one priority) and the Fear Mongering will continue. Did I
mention that the American people (if they haven't already) will realize that the money that we have put into Social Security and Medicare is no longer
there. And that our wonderful GOV has already dipped their paws in the honey pot. There will be blood in the streets. There is no doubt in my mind
In my opinion, whether they do or they don't raise the debt ceiling we are still going to have the same out come.
Unemployment numbers are no going to change, because the Gov continues to fund corporations that care about corporations. Not Companies that care
Healthcare is not going to change we will still pay more health insurance premiums that cost most Americans more than their paychecks alone.
The Gov will continue to fund "Humanitarian Missions" over seas while we have a homelessness and hunger problem right here in America.
Gas will continue to rise, which will cause food to rise which will make it hard to even eat in the country if you don't have a good job.
Taxes will continue to climb as well as tolls, vehicle costs, court costs and any other government ran fee's.
This is all political posturing and nothing more.
This is an ongoing circle that has been building up for a long time. And I'm telling everyone. Debt ceiling yes, Debt ceiling no. It's all gonna end
badly either way. One will get us there faster than the other.
So pull up your bootstraps, and hang on to your wallets America we're in for a bumpy ride.
