    I like that article.

    I heard something on NPR that made me LOL: Republicans on one hand took the government hostage because they don't approve of fiscal decisions, but on the other hand claim that defaulting would be "no big deal." That's like taking someone hostage and saying "Give me what I want or I will...give this guy a pleasant massage."

    Yeah, if you don't like a fiscal decision, go and make an even worse one; shutting down the government hurts the economy, jobs, foreign investment in the US, our credibility in other country's eyes, and increases debt, and makes it more difficult to borrow more money to pay it back.

    Well, I'm just glad now that this has been fixed, we will never have another crisis about the debt ceiling that will magically be resolved at the last minute.

    Sorry, it's just annoying that this seems to happen two times a year. It's kind of stopped being something I worry about.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    The American shutdown came at a bad time for it kept the President from meeting the leaders of Asia and the Pacific.

    And this at a time when China is beating the drums of war, and America has pivoted towards Asia, and Australia is talking about armed neutrality.
