The Republicans this weekend did what they always do. They caved in. They reached a deal for our nation’s debt that allows them to campaign as conservative while actually doing nothing of substance.

The deal allows the government to spend until January 1, 2025 without any limits at all.

It’s what Republicans do best- feather their own nests. That’s why Trump vs. DeSantis is a meaningless debate.

Pelosi-McCarthy? Who does he work for?
Honk, honk!

Totally agree, brother. I’ve been saying it since Desan starting talking tough… he’s just another thieving grifter, bought & paid for by the deep state.

There is scarcely a whit of difference between the Leftists and Repugs. Both are working together to become millionaires on a SNIP: According to the official website of the U.S. Senate, a senator receives $174,000 each year. This figure has remained the same since 2009.

And always get re-elected (WHAT 19% approval rating but 98% Re-election rate?).

As Carlin said: It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy.

It’s going to HURT you and I when the dollar goes down in flames.

But if you have protected your family well enough, you’ll have shelter, food, safe water, trusted friends to cover your back and most of all a good relationship with your Creator.

The GOP is a feckless, useless party that masquerades as an opposition party. It should go the way of the Whigs in the 1850s.

This ain’t going to pass unless a boatload of dumbrocrats vote for it. But the Freedom Caucus in the House may shoot down McCarthy over it.

Trump wants us to default. He may not be wrong. Default today or in five years may be the only choice that we have.

at this point, none of it really matters anymore…pretty soon we will be fighting over twinkies just to eat…

Just one more nail in the coffin lid.

This. Will. Not. End. Well.

For anyone.

Default is a given. The only stipulation is that it will come not in an orderly, arranged fashion, but in a disorderly, chaotic fashion. No politician has the testicular fortitude to make the move that actually triggers the collapse. So, the trigger will likely be an exogenous event, rather than a decree by what passes for the US govt now. And yes, it will cause an unfathomable level of suck for us.

Compare this situation to Spain, which during the period where it exerted significant power in the world, including the exploration of the then “new world”, defaulted on It’s sovereign debt multiple times. Further, it did this while it was extracting copious amounts of gold from areas the of the new world they controlled, and kept the gains from the acquisition of that gold while telling it’s debt holders to piss off.

Of course, there weren’t many big players then who could do much about it, at least in immediately retaliatory terms. In the 21st century, Russia and China have enough juice – both economic and military – to make it hurt badly when the US is finally forced to declare it’s debts null and void. But rest assured, that day is coming.

They’re not Republicans, they’re Republican’ts.

And I’m not sure I didn’t misplace a “u” that should have been in that word somewhere.

Bastards, every single one.
