The recent debt limit congressional circus must be a new Twilight Zone episode written by a computerized program straight out of central casting. Rod Serling must be turning in his grave. A twenty-first century rewrite of his exceptional Seven Days in May screenplay is certainly in order, this time with a different ending. If there are any confused or co-opted worshipers of the federal government left, what more proof do you need that the bipartisan political criminal class is determined to destroy this nation? Not convinced that this assessment is correct; then you need remediable instruction in arithmetic. Increasing the spending with more borrowed money cannot reduce the debt.
The world financial markets are voting with their money, that the U.S of A. will no longer be the leader of free market enterprise. The flow of hot money into Treasury Bonds is tantamount to feeding the alligator with the hope that eating forged paper will forgo its appetite for flesh. This is the same strategy used to shackle market makers and docile societies into accepting, that the world financial system must be saved from their own greed and pillage, so that the dependent vassals can continue to pay their tribute.
The beltway bottom feeders know just how to scare their pudden-head constituents. With the complicity of the corporate controlled media, the task of getting away with murder has been elevated to a supreme political art form. ‘Pols’ can fool some of the public with all the false causes and bogus reasons for the dysfunctional federal government, but can they escape the distrust in their deal making skills, that never resolve any substantive issues? Even the current New York Times and CBS poll, cannot hide the disgust with an 82% disapproval sentiment.
