There hasn’t been any significant progress in resolving the Congressional impasse on the manufactured shutdown crisis. Not good. Not good at all.
Today is the 13th day of this crisis, and the 14th day is just hours away. The implications for America brings up dark thoughts, especially when I recall this famous Samuel Johnson quote:
I suggest that is just one of many wonderful possibilities, but I offer the following to help you help Congress focus their minds wonderfully.
Mark your choice with a Nr. 2 pencil, and send it to your representatives in Congress. They seem hell-bent to destroy this country and the world for some obscure “principle”, i.e. saving their butts, though that is very unlikely to happen after this ordeal!
If they blow it and the country defaults on its debts, my choice for them is Seppuku. How about you?!
