Probably why Timmy wants to quit around that time.
Raise the debt ceiling or bust!
Bust the debt ceiling, or bust!

The democrats and the republicans are going to destroy this Country so that it can be made over in a more Bank Friendly Format! LULZ!! Internet Switch is a comin boyz!
Both parties have already destroyed the country.
All that's happening now is that the facade is being stripped away to reveal the horrible truth: we're bankrupt.
NO! Just YOU!! Republicans!!!
Obama LOVES us!!
Obama $656 Million LOBBY Dollars! http://bit.ly/Tu4v Obama Let the FED Print 1/2 a Trillion since Jan 1 2011 http://bit.ly/aBu9yF
Rolling over old national debt is like issuing new debt. It has all the trappings of issuing new debt except it doesn't increase the size of the national debt.
I thank God everyday for the complete and total economic collapse of the USA.
When we finally default, the rest of the world will cut us off from trade with them and we will get our manufacturing jobs back because we need replacement parts for our shit.
Default is a win win for the .
I'm with you.
And if default really would do that to the usa then i think we can all safely say that an agreement will be reached where the politicos can save it up for another day with the can kicked down the road yet again.
It doen't feel right yet... these people are the lowest of the low, they'll keep kicking until the wheels are totally off for all to see.
Since The Trend is firmly in place, the only question is whether the U$D will hold any value after default until Jan. 2012 and what currency will replace it?
¿Tienes plata gringo?
Quix, I heard you Quixit in des-gust a few weeks ago. Didn't you? But this place is like crack eh? Keep coming back fro more.
And perhaps your question should be will the USD trade for anything of value. it hold's no value in and of itself.
My sign reading, batting a decent average as I type, says we will see major dislocations between tnow and July 15th, with July 16th as a key date.
In the light of what is to unfold, whether in the Nuclear Mid-west or freak heat for snow-melt, reality will trump all this nonsense soon. We need look no further than Fukushima and the rolling disaster signs in the US.
Our new normal, nothing like the old normal.
Sorry, don't give two-bits about the opinion of some H1B wannabe...The rumours of my departure have been greatly exaggerated ;-)
Only concerned with hard asset value internally within the former USofA, not looking to purchase foreign trinkets or pathetic attempts at labour.
Since I moved my U$D holdings out of T-Direct, I'm sincerely hoping the dollar maintains par against 'MeriKan Ponzi housing schemes, but I'm starting to worry that the huddled masses will miss the opportunity to sell their inflated assets before 2012 Obamageddon...
Too bad none of former US patriots have a crystal ball!
P.S. Just curious, did you have your Indian piece of ass come to the US on a tourist visa - Like millions of other H1B temp visa slaves - and did you make her pop out a bambino so you and your lil' tribe could claim 'MeriKan "citizenship"?
If not, get with the scam!
New Yawk City is awash in anchor babies...
Hmmm...I wonder if they will or won't raise the debt ceiling?
I'm really analyzing this. It's a profound issue with profound consequences and implication.
Will they or won't they?
It's not what the debt BUYS that matters.
It's what the debt SELLS.
Ahhhhhhhaaaaaaah! A liar AND an asshole.
Good luck mate!
I'm in India BTW.
You are welcome to your dystopia and your hate.
the dude's in love with himself, that's all. which makes him a prick. aside from that, he does (on rare occasion) make pertinent comments
*nods* clearly. And he does.
I love Dr Ron Paul.
"The US defaulted on its national debt many times before. It wasn't the end of the world the last few times. We muddled through it. We can do it again."
So what if you wanted a monetary system that was different than the one we have now?
After the default we could try one that Ron Paul could describe. Imagine that, a President who could actually describe to the American people from his own mouth not reading a teleprompter, what a new monetary system we should use and be like, in great detail. What other man on the planet Earth could copy what Paul could actually do?
No other person running for President in the country could do that.
Dr Paul, he had a good life. He just wishes it could be there for his grand kids.
He knows his grand kids have another 75 years to go.
I just got an idea for a new Youtube upload.
Tell me what you think?
Things That Should Not Be Said In Public! Dr. Who?

I guess it's all Obama's fault, right? I mean, he didn't inherit a crappy situation or anything, did he ?
Pool Shark +1 - both parties spent money we didn't have. [Clinton's "balanced" budget was not balanced if they had not taken the excess from Social Security].

Off the meds again
what do you think is going to happen with the full faith of the American Dollar is called into serious question?
Unicorns shitting rainbow skittle turds everywhere?
Don't you want to go where the rainbow ends?
Too many leprechauns wanting to bum an American cigarette.
Not forgetting....Got any Gum Chum!!!
The last Irishman that worked for me loved saying at the end of a meeting: "I need to murder a fag".
Not very PC. But very Irish.
what I think will happen is a chance to rebuild a limited government with true individual liberty and personal responsibility for all.
Of course the next ten years or so might not be too pleasant, but you can't make an omelete without smashing a few eggs and blending them up, adding a little cream and bacon. I always think a little bell and jalepeno pepper works great too.
I was brought up to put Tabasco in.. with or without peppers.. give it a try.. Louisiana as well I have developed a taste for over the last 5 years of so?
I LOVE Breakfast!
'full faith and credit" of the US Treasury, or Government, or how did that go on those old bond indentures?
I haven't seen one in a couple of decades----all digital now, no?
Does anyone know anything about what I can't remember?
My prediction of what will happen unfortunately is they will raise the debt ceiling, and in the process of doing that the Reps will win at pushing for austerity. The game is the Reps ask for austerity, the Dems fight, but lose. They want us as cheap labor. They want to make us all poor, so we will be desperate and cheap.
You would be wrong!
'MeriKans, by continuing to vote for the (D) & (R) Duopoly, have volunteered themselves and their progeny to the new Fuedalism.
Sorry, but there's no one here to blame but We The Sheeple themselves...
The road to hell is paved with selfish fantasies.
Please, do try to keep up, and pull your head out of your arse before you suffocate!
I see an increase in the aggregate supply of prostitutes.
Not before time for an asset firesale & not talking Ukranian
hooker bitches in the Hamptons. Greek style. US Sell your gold
( Hahmmm ), sell Manhattan, sell everything possible until
there is a few trillion available to pay down the steaming
Maybe the opening trailer for Modern Warfare 3 was actually a prophecy... Chinese submarines in New York harbor coming to collect whats owed to them lol
Yea thats eerily relevant.
When will TLT trade on the pink sheets?
This premise, like that super bowl commercial is rediculous. If the US defaults on the debt, EVERYONE will drop treasuries, including the Chinese. What happens afterwards is anybody's guess, but it won't end with hoards of angry Chinese demanding payment due. But it might end with hoards of BMW drivers walking for a change.
None of this apocalyptic stuff is going to happen...yet. First, both parties are posturing, playing to their constituencies, special interests, group entitlements. There'll be a deal, mid- to late-July, involving Xtrillions in "spending cuts" (over the next 10 years....), none of which will ever actually occur, and some token, nuisance increases in taxes and fees. That's all; oh, almost forget, Boner will have a good cry at the signing ceremony. Then back to the Universal Ponzi for maybe another 12 months. More important reason it's not going to happen...yet...is that I am still insufficiently stockpiled and weaponized.
walking sucks balls
Somebody would BUY Manhattan??? Do they have to take Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, and Bof A too??? Can we throw in San Francisco and Nancy Pelosi??? Naw... nobody's that dumb!
Buzz off from San Francisco. You can take Nancy though.
Total US assets are US$75.55 trillions dollars. Still long way to go.
You think one night with Michelle Obama is worth that much?
I could wash myself clean of that experience for $75T but not a penny less!
mark-to-myth total us assets are us$75tril.....while actual value is what you can get for cash.....so who has $75tril in credit to buy our assets...oh wait...we sell the assets to ourselves...? right.....the 'we are the richest nation on earth' crap is wearing a little thin.....
