3 So what happens when we hit the debt ceiling? Does the country vaporize, or is it more like the Happening and we all give up and stop going to work?

it'll be more like a sci-fi movie when the hero blows up the mother ship and all the alien drones just drop to the ground wherever they are, lifeless... useless

People not on the government teat go to work....

they get paid probably still in cash and credit and pretty much nothing has to change but belt tightening on spending....

that said Ogabe will probably burn up the document and start issuing bottle caps as currency

6 I justed wanted to say that Bob's Burgers is the best animated show on TV. I even enjoy it more than Archer, which will start a new season in January.

It's like crossing the beam of ghostbuster guns. You're never quite sure what will happen.

10 fuck this, fuck that, fuck this, fuck that in particular....

Whatevs. Preezy Cakeboy and her fans in the MFM are going to let her continue to prance and dick around like Mr. Toughy and hammer on the pubs with lies. They are doing it because it takes the focus off her signature achievement (besides playing bottom to Reggie Love on AF1)--404Care-- the biggest fuck up in US history, or at least close. See, FDR's New Deal and LBJ's Great Society. Heaven forbid this steaming pile is around in 40-65 years like their pipe dreams. Cf., Rise of the Inner-City Feral Yutes and Babies' Mommas Getting Freebies For Humping Irresponsibly.

I. am. done.

Gotta send some of my money to DC by midnight so the SCoaMF can fund her terrorist buddies or can squat and piss it away on some bullshit contracts with donors. ~spit and fart in her direction~ (my own way of praying to DCMecca)

Good day and week morons and 'ettes.

How is no increase to Debt Ceiling different from a Balanced Budget Amendment? Take the win and walk off the field.

18 I keep waking up hoping that our so called "leaders" will wake up and say...

"Hey - how the hell is tripling a working American's health care charge going to make this more affordable?"

I keep hoping common sense takes over.

Now I just pray for every passing day till we get someone ... anyone that will repeal this load of shit.

Let Obama waste whatever comes in as
long as he pays the interest on the debt, which is his constitutional
obligation. It just means he will waste a trillion less
per year. I bet he could still afford enough for Barrycades and kitteh blenders.

They open for Alice Cooper every couple of years. Welcome to my nightmare I believe was their first appearance. Oh yeah, and it was an open air festival in Peruvia. Gotta love it.

28 Fake Health Exchange Sites Easily Identifiable Because They Work

by John Sexton


snip~

The unofficial sites can sell real insurance plans however those plans have not been certified by the government and are therefore not eligible for government subsidies. So if you log on to a health insurance exchange site that seems to be working properly, caveat emptor.

30 Huffypo, politico, etc, still beating the drum against "evil, racist" Steve Lonegan. Yawn. If Booker is a sure thing by at least 15 points, why do they need to do that? To get the troops charged up? Maybe Booker is not doing as well as trumpeted.
