From the VOMITORIUM
I know damn well you have heard all the rumblings about the deficit and the national debt ceiling….you have heard the back and forth….the blame game….the political rhetoric….well the debt ceiling is the fecal matter to which I refer…..
The GOP has drawn their line imaginary line in the sand….the Dems have peed on it and refused to cross it….and in the end it will all be just one big Kabuki….political theater and not even at its best……
In the end, we ALL know these dipsticks will raise the ceiling and move on to something else…..but before that happens our politicians just have to play this silly little political game….a game to appear as if they are actually earning their money…..
The game is a foot! They recently postponed the date to August, the 2nd, I believe and as the deadline approaches the media will be sucked into this infantile game….they will start making the ceiling the lead story and will parade expert after expert and analyst after analyst out and then as it draws really close they will install a countdown clock that will flash continuously to let us know just how soon the country will fail and become just another Greece….as the clock counts down the minutes and hours and just before the final tick….the Congress will come to an agreement and raise the ceiling and thus preventing any damage to Wall Street from the ceiling…and all of it could have been done months ago….but then there could not be this massive drama, a pretend drama, to keep the people mesmerized by their, our Reps, truly amazing acting job.
Yes,m they raised the ceiling limit and we will have been saved by our “hard” working Reps….they raised it and without ever addressing the problems that it carries…..like the massive health care costs or the oil monopolies and their subsidies or the financial scams that have been plaguing the economy or banks gambling with taxpayer money or endless wars or…….it is a sizable list of problems and NONE will be addressed….and all can be considered the root causes of the problems we have with the deficit….
And in the end of the soap opera…the country will be NO better off than the day they started playing the game…..but the national debt ceiling will have been raised……..hope you sleep better knowing this……
