    Once Major Garrett in his unctuous incarnation started punctuating every other sentence with “Sir”, I knew he was up to his FOX news tricks and was about to deliver his rightwing talking points courtesy of his corporate masters.

    He thinks he’s slick!

    U.S. Debt Ceiling: Costs and Consequences

    The U.S. Treasury has borrowed trillions of dollars over the past decade, much of it from foreign investors, to help finance two long wars, rescue its financial system, and promote economic growth via fiscal stimulus. The country’s ability to borrow is restricted by statute, and Congress has perennially been called upon to authorize the issuance of new debt space. However, the federal government reached its borrowing capacity of $16.39 trillion in December 2012, and, in the absence of new borrowing authority from Congress, Treasury is taking extraordinary measures to meet its financial obligations. The United States has always been able to raise its debt limit in a timely fashion, and many economists assert that a failure to do so in early 2013 would plunge the government into default and precipitate an acute fiscal crisis.

      Let us never forget it’s THEIR White House, in their minds, and THEY dictate how it should look.

      And they look like fools to every POC that’s watching. They lose a bit more credibility each and every time.

    Morning guys! First day of Orientation on my new job today. My last job was for a “faith-based” hospital, it was run by a Presbryterian organization. This one is a Catholic organization and I kinda feel indoctrinated already. It’s much more heavy-handed that the last place. It’s doesn’t matter to me, Im not Catholic, but I’m from a “Catholic” state (we have parishes instead of counties) in a Catholic heavy city so I’m used to it. I have cringed a little at moments though when I think about people who aren’t used to the overt-ness of the message.

    Anyway, I’m excited to start and get to the lab and start my training so I can get back to what I do best.

      As a Protestant who went to Catholic School from K-12, been there done that, got the t-shirt (LOL).

      Glad to hear you’re settling in okay.

    If I were to hold a presser for my kindergarten class, it would be similar to this. Except for the eating the enticing morsels that emanate from their noses. Oh wait, maybe a close up of Todd would show…..

      Ha! He strikes me as a paste eater…

    I wish I could put a large piece of cholla cactus on the chairs of every seat in that front row press corp. The biggest pieces being reserved for Chuckie the Toad & Jake Tapwart!

    Who was the dizzy biscuit that asked PBO about diversity & his social skills? She can go suck on a piece of cholla!

    These people all need to be on unemployment. We should get a group of HS & Elementary school kiddos in those seats (no cactus!) to ask PBO questions at the pressers. From what I have seen the kiddos ask better, more intelligent questions & have better comprehension skills.

    • conlakappa

      The kids always do ask him thoughtful questions. They also look way more mature while doing so. I think they recognize it’s an honor to speak with the holder of the highest office in the land.

      • Aquagranny911

        Nailed that!!!
