Who Hijacked Our Country

Debt Deal Has Been Reached

YES!!! Oh Thank GOD. That was close! Whew!!! We’ve been saved by our Leaders. Our heroes! [swoon]

After months of haggling and wrangling, and with less than 36 hours before the August 2nd deadline, our dedicated public servants were able to put aside their political differences and reach an agreement. Armageddon has been prevented. America will not default on her debts. The debt ceiling has been raised and there will NOT be a global financial meltdown. And we owe it all to the heroic actions of our leaders.

We can all rest easy, knowing we’re safe now. We’re protected. We’re in good hands.

We’ve all spent months sitting on the edges of our chairs, wringing our hands and biting our nails; thinking the unthinkable: What would happen if America defaulted for the first time in our history??? Things were looking dire. Hopeless. Terrifying. But thank God our swashbuckling heroes have acted. Putting aside their crippling fears, and looking danger straight in the eye and saying “Fuck You!” — our death-defying heroes have rushed in and saved us.

This is indeed a proud moment for America
s politicians. We owe you!

Yes it does.

And I submit (without respect) that our Congress is comprised of whores and pansies.

Yeah, that compromise thing is the way go, all right. 99.9 percent for one side, and .1 for the other.

Yes, but that will be tough, considering how many Republicans in the House and Senate seem to think they are the president. 8-)

We owe them all right.

A trip out of the country (if not to prison) and away from all dangerous leadership positions before they hurt themselves.

Love you, Tom.

At first I thought the link was a mistake. Then the light bulb came on over my head. Excellent final touch.

The big story, though, isn't that resolution of this Republican hijacking scam, this manufactured crisis, is at hand. The really big thing is that once again, President Obama has avoided a nasty, unseemly scene where he would've had to take it to the people so ferociously that Republicans, maybe even their tea bagger evil twins, would have been forced to back down.

Jerry: Sometimes it's the best way to express frustration.

Snave: That's an insult to whores and pansies.

Valley Dude: Thanks.

Lisa: That would be nice.

jadedj: Republicans think they're compromising when they give up .1% of what they wanted.

Snave: They want all the power with none of the responsibility.

Suzan: That's exactly what they deserve -- a trip to prison or out of the country.

SW: "...a nasty, unseemly scene where Obama would've had to take it to the people so ferociously that Republicans, maybe even their tea bagger evil twins, would have been forced to back down." Ah, the stuff of which dreams are made.

The rich will always win. Once everyone understands this, they'll be better off whilst killing each other over the table scraps.

I don't know how many of you went to link Tom referenced, but it is what made the article, so I am going to put some relevant text below:

At least 30 West Virginia firefighters have been arrested this year for starting fires, including fires they have later returned to fight.
