Well, I Guess It’s Time to Face It . . .
Yes, the end has come. Speaker Boehner’s solution to being unable to pass a plan in his Republican dominated House that is already DOA in the Senate and would be vetoed by the President if it DID make it through, is to come up with one that’s even less likely to get through and furthermore would probably still result in a massive credit downgrade. This is because it still requires a second vote on the debt ceiling before the elections and this time it would require that both houses pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution (and I’m thinking that requires like a 2/3 majority vote) and send it off to the states who will, of course, joyfully pass such a thing as quickly as possible. In the next, um, 10 months or so.
So we’re doomed.
And now, boys and girls, we will begin to discuss the basics of a survival garden. Don’t have a yard, you say, or, even worse, worried about unemployed scavengers robbing your tomatoes and cukes? Grow an indoor garden!
You guys probably think I’m kidding here, right? Wish I was.
