That's easy to solve. Just lose a match to Canada and there will be rioting in the streets.

Or just turn off the electricity for 24 hours.

Or get some cops to beat up a black guy on tape.

Or have the G7 come visit.

Plenty of ways to have fun.... I mean a riot.

We need to cut spending and we need to stop borrowing $.42 for every dollar spent.  As much as it triggers my gag reflex, perhaps Cut, Cap and Balance isn't that bad of an idea.

I'm sure the deal is already penned. This is just political showmanship by our two polarized parties to look good in the eyes of the far extremes that seem to run them nowadays.

Much truf.

Both parties are showboating for a re-election bid.

This coming election is going to be a tough fight all around, with more elements coming into play than any election in my memory (which granted, is kind of a short straw at 24). By that I mean while the issues are basically the same (war, economy, health care, etc), the sense of urgency that has been placed on the American people by media talking heads has been ratcheted up past 11, and it's brought a lot of voters and candidates out of the woodwork like roaches under a rattling appliance.

So basically we have drama like this to look forward to for every single minor decision that Congress or the President makes. Obama won't be able to take a dump without some TV personality calling it the most controversial, critical dump ever taken by a president. A presidential dump so important that, were it to require a second flush, it could in fact be the most inflated dump ever taken by a human being. Republicans will then promise to take much smaller dumps if elected, dumps so small that the toilets in the white house could be set to use a significantly smaller amount of water and thereby save taxpayers money and conserve water at the same time. Expect a Hannity special soon thereafter.

I have the answer to our gubmints decision making skills.  It's what I refer to as the "180 doctrine". It would be a mortal lock if I employed it against my cousins sports betting skills but I don't gamble.  In his case it would be $5.00 against every bet he makes.  This is a lock.

So the same principle can be applied to the guvmints decision making skills.  So when they do their silly little thing's that they do to arrive at the silly little decisions that they make and draft up the paperwork, before they sign it there needs to be a 180 Doctrine Contract Specialist that will draft up an opposing(total opposite). document that will be signed and implemented. win

Well, the U.S. credit rating has now dropped from AAA to AA+. S&P states it is because the government has not done enough to reduce the debt.

Linky.

Dave Ramsey's financial ministry gave this illustration on the radio: If the US Government was a family they would be making $58,000 a year. They spend $75,000 a year and are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. (These are the actual proportions of the federal budget and debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.)

The federal budget cannot be compared to a family budget.
