So, Obama's trying to target the business that are already working in a practically free market. The republicans want to protect the destructive and degenerative lesaiz faire capitalism, at least for their election campaign backers. And all the while, Obama's being accused of encouraging class warfare for trying to apply these tax hikes to the people who can afford them. Err, scratch that. Companies aren't people. They just have more rights, and are nigh immortal.

If changing the status quo to be a tad more fair is encouraging class warfare, then you have a problem. Making it more fair should actually be lowering your class warfare.

The only problem is that there's would be no real reason to hike the debt ceiling and do all this crazy stuff if the world wasn't so caught up in Keynesian economics.

Thoughts?

Personally, I think the default is a big scare tactic the government is pulling....Going into default would probably mean another depression for America, which they wouldn't allow (if they're smart, that is...) and would also make America look even more weak....It's too much of a risk....
But...If shit does go down...

This.



I'll just leave this here: http://www.usdebtclock.org/
Pretty scary to think that the US is going to have to raise it's debt ceiling on top of all of that. At least people still want to lend the US money, though. Think of poor old Greece.

Economics are a silly thing. The schematics of money in the future and debt is saying "We're going to be unsustainable, but it will make us strong enough to shoot you if you call us out, and it won't be viable if you don't do the same"

I dunno. I'm very quickly becoming politically apathetic at this point -- both parties disappoint me in equal measure, really. Partisan posturing and pretty speeches only go so far.

All the Republicans have done is assured I'll never vote for them on a Federal level for the next generation.
