    We were already past our heyday, but this will mark the true beginning of the end, and Obama will always be noted as the sitting prez when it happened.

    they don't care about you, they'll probably just take Alaska (oil resources) and call it a day

    What's China really going to do about it? Call in their debts? The dollar is worthless, so they'll just get fucked in the long run.
    Fuck those greasy slopes, and their stupid wall-biting faces.

    Hopefully China is not stable enough to drop the debt like that, because that would destroy us. They could throw the debt on the open market, driving up massive inflation and making the dollar all but obsolete. They would take a pretty large hit also, but China is almost crazy enough to do it... and when you have 1 billion workers with almost no civil rights you can fuck around like that, even if it means 10-20 million people might starve because of it.

    They are right with respect to raising the limit doesn't
    solve the problems. What really would help this country
    will never happen. The govt is a bloated piece of shit that
    needs a total overhaul. Won't happen though because too
    many people in power are riding the gravy train and won't
    kill the programs that help get them elected nor will they cut
    the fat of their salaries or the useless jobs we all pay for.

    No, the government is a run away train with no brakes.
    The only way this will end is with a huge crash that does
    a ton of damage that may be unrepairable.

    What honestly needs to happen is all-out revolution. Not gonna happen because people are either too comfortable or too complacent, or just too scared. in any case, it's not gonna happen and that's why we're fucked.

    Brilliant post. :haha7:

    You're a fucking idiot for that one.

    The joke is he's not a liberal, so he has a job, cares for his children, and doesn't have a whole lot of free time to go hold a sign.

    As amusing as that was (and it was, no sarcasm here), the problem is that it's also true. Long gone are the days of violent revolution. People have too much to lose in the world we've created, and are shit scared of rocking the boat. That, and the government is so fucking huge, so all powerful and far reaching, that there is no realistic chance of a rebellion actually working anymore. They've built a revolution-proof system here in the USA and we all let it happen.
