I don't think anything about it because they haven't fix anything and they certainly aren't running to the press going "LOOOK AT WHAT WE DID" and explaining it. Have you seen the stock market in the last two days?

And um, there's already a post about this. I think Sloppy Donkey started it yesterday. It's a poll. My dinner is ready, so I'm not going to track it down.

They did what they always do. Wait until the last minute, scare everyone to death and then do the status quo. We all knew they were not going to let us default on our debts. You want to see a revolution stop SS & Veteran payments. They are useless at this point and have no clue what they are doing nor have any real and quality solutions to get us out of this mess. I watch CNN religiously and some days I just have to turn it off. Scares the shit out of me for our children. We have no real candidates in this upcoming election. That includes Obama.....and I'm a Democrat!

Nope, the federal government rarely seems to work things out correctly. I don't understand the political parties at all these days.

I'm very disappointed with the performance of our legislators on both sides of the aisle. They all appear to be more interested in playing politics rather than actually doing right for the benefit of the country.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Credit rating agency Standard & Poor's says it has downgraded the United States' credit rating for the first time in the history of the ratings.

The credit rating agency says that it is cutting the country's top AAA rating by one notch to AA-plus. The credit agency said late Friday that it is making the move because the deficit reduction plan passed by Congress on Tuesday did not go far enough to stabilize the country's debt situation.

A source familiar with the discussions said that the Obama administration believes S&P's analysis contained "deep and fundamental flaws."

When all the documents come to light on this we will all find that more of our rights have been taken away. For example the Gun Owners of America wrote me today informing me that extra legislature was added to this that will take away our right to bear arms later on down the line. And it will not be debatable except in congress- so you know what that means. Kickbacks anybody? Hint, Hint

This is why non-sense like this happens regularly- not for the matter at hand-but to take away something or add something totally off the whole subject.

Ponder this--In the bailout last year why did they add legislature to add legalization of several artificial sweeteners to the bill?

I will tell you why--Because they are known to cause alzheimers disease and brain cancer and many other as yet unknown diseases.

So, in short this "crisis" was business as usual for our leaders. Hurt the common man. Take something away from them whether it be their minds, health or guns which we will sorely need for security soon. It is late in the day for freedom in America folks.
What does the debt ceiling have to do with guns? Nothing.
What did the bankers bailout have to do with artificial sweeteners? Nothing.
Excuse me, I must masturbate now to get this latest attack on U.S. out of my head.

it was a self created crisis they used to take more of our power away from us. Just like they have done with the health care reform bill, tarpp, the bailouts, ect.. the list just goes on.

The debt crisis bill did not fix anything. They agreed to not add 10 trillion to the debt in ten years, they will just add 9 trillion. That is like me telling my wife I saved us 80 grand by not buying a new sports car in the next ten years. Our law makers are not serious about fixing anything. If they were serious, it would mean taking away alot of freebies from their voters, in turn would mean less votes for them. They have no skills, being a lawmaker is all they know. They dont want to lose their jobs. It is sad.

to fix this country and make it as strong as before, we need to step away from the socialist path they are headed down, and get back on the right path of the free market. Take a look at china. They are doing great because they stepped away from a government that was not working, and started up a semi-free market. The citizens are starting to create wealth for them selves. Same with cuba.

We can not keep funding social security and medicare. It does not work. Should we look out for the elderly and the poor? Yes. But that should be something I decide to do with my money. Not something the government makes as all do. Where there is government, there will be over regulation and waste. I should be able to decide how much of my extra money goes to help whomever I feel needs it the most.

Whenever you bring this up, people get upset. They feel they deserve the social security and medicare. They get angry and don't see the bigger picture of the situation. The programs do not work, they are going to bankrupt the country. If you feel you have had too many of your freedoms taken away from you up to this point, just wait until the country goes broke.

If you feel I am picking on entitlement programs, I am not. But you need to realize they are over 40% of the budget. If you are not angry with how things are going, then you are not paying attention.
