The shutdown and debt ceiling crisis that was started because some Republicans don’t like Obamacare is still going on, presumably because Boehner likes being Speaker more than not living in a banana republic. Since reason isn’t going to work, I came up with some other options that could end the stalemate.
The continuing government shutdown seems almost quaint as we begin this week with the House hurtling us toward default and an economic depression in their latest tantrum to defund the Affordable Care Act.
These assholes already got the sequestration cuts to be permanently enshrined in the latest budget, thanks to the spineless Democrats, so of course they feel like they’d get yet another ransom for holding the country hostage. If the President and his party didn’t cave during the first debt ceiling fight in 2011, we would’ve had this fight then, and I could spend this October drawing silly Halloween cartoons with fun monsters and shit.
Fuck those guys.
I enjoyed “The Avengers,” but “The Dark Knight Rises” is the only summer blockbuster I’m looking forward to. Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” is the movie I’m most anticipating this year, but it’s not coming out until the fall. I guess the awesomeness that is summer television will have to tide me over.
