We’ll try to do this every Saturday just for fun. But I’m changing the name to “Flash Editorials” since I’m not usually clever enough to do an editorial in only one sentence.
Raising The Debt Ceiling: Congressional leaders and the President meet daily to negotiate…two hours a day over default and a 4 trillion dollar budget. Two hours.
Debt Ceiling II: The Mitch McConnell proposal to give Obama his debt ceiling hike would force the Dems and Obama to cut spending.
Debt Ceiling III: Obama spooks the elderly by saying DC might not send SS checks on August 3rd. Well Played!
Debt Ceiling IV: The quicker DC goes broke, the quicker secession can proceed.
Money: Gold and silver hit new highs this week as people notice that the DC mob just has afternoon tea together daily.
Money II: S&P, Moody’s etc. threaten to downgrade Treasury bonds. What a surprise.
Monetary Policy: Bernanke states that “gold isn’t money”, thereby securing the “Stupidest Man in DC” title for himself.
Middle East: President Obama throws Syrian President al-Assad under the bus by calling for “change.” Being Washington’s friend is unhealthy.
The Nation: Los Angeles’ 405 freeway closes for repair, making national news, thereby pre-empting stories about how DC is screwing the entire earth and destroying our entire way of life.
Sports: The USA is going to whip the Japs again in the Women’s World Cup of Soccer.
Entertainment: Harry Potter breaks all records for box office take for its first weekend.
