<<We have the politicians to blame once the US debt defaults on its debt. The only thing we can do as a country is not vote these scumbags backinto office again.

Perhaps the best way to prevent the government from continuing to run up massive and chronic debt is to just say "no" to more of it.

Obama attempted to whip up public fear about the embargoed spending at the first of the year. That continues and no one cares about it.

We are currently doing without "essential" Federal employees, and we seeme to be better off for that.

Reminds me of a Dilbert comic strip:

It's winter and snowing hard.

The curly haired boss makes an announcement that non essential employees can go home early.

In the last frame, the curly haired boss is looking through binoculars at the parking lot to see who is leaving.

He's thinking "The next round of layoffs will be the easiest EVER!"
