The Dangers of a Debt “Negotiation”
I can't verify this number and I don't understand why your message doesn't show up.
I'm not going to continue to answer your questions, you are capable of looking up the answers for yourself, and honestly, I don't care what the answer is to most of them, as it doesn't make a difference in my thoughts about any of it, at all. I suspect that Russia DID attack Ukraine provokedly, as Putin hisself stated that he attacked, albeit he tried to provide cover for doing so, but he has given at least 3 reasons for doing so that I know of, and possible more. Regardless....he is a fascist leader as notorious for lying as DJT is and aren't worthy of my bothering to give either of them very moch more space in my brain. I am bored with both of them and exhausted with the daily rehetoric and lies that come from them and the people who support them or those that sit on the fence about either of theml.
Oh, now may 29 thw news = A deal on debt? No default? What did I write a few days ago. " No chance America was about to default." Worry and incessant talky talk = waste of energy and time.
I think this should be a warning to average people in this country to start paying some more attention to what is going on in politics. I realize a lot of people are really not interested in politics because it does not seem to be immediately relevant to average everyday concerns. I believe Kevin McCarthy and his ilk got elected by a vocal minority that regularly votes. Too many average people do not bother to vote. The wealthy very consistently vote and give a lot of money to politicians that promote what the wealthy want. My hope is that a lot of Generation Z voters that were born 1997 to 2012 may very well be our hope to voting out Kevin McCarthy and his ilk. Here is the link to the wikipedia article defining Generation Z: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_Z
The oldest members of Generation Z turned 18 in 2015. The youngest members of this cohort will turn 18 in 2030. The US Constitution allows people 18 and older to vote all across the United States. The Red political Tsunami that was expected to happen in 2022 did not materialize because of the vote
of the Generation Z members who were 18 years or older..
I better not forget the Millenial Generation that was born from 1981 to 1996. Here is the link to the wikipedia article about the Millenial Generation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennials.
I am estimating that both Millenials and Generation Z will constitute over 100 million people in the United States t hat could be a large enough voting block to topple McCarthy and his ilk in probably 2024. In 2024, the members of Generation Z born in 2006 will be of voting age in 2024.
Hi Eric, have you ever heard of Jude Wanniski and his 2 Santa's strategy?
I think you sound more like an idealist than gullible. Idealists are my people. If you can't see the ideal, the beautiful, you are destined to wander in fog. But, if there is any hope of fulfilling our ideals we have to be able to articulate what we see, so others can join in. The opposition will call anything you/I describe as shiny empty promises." There are no promises, just hard work toward what we want.
Have you considered running for office?
Trump supporters don't know the meaning of truth, clearly anyone who believes his ridiculous statements is not playing with a full deck.
WAR...unnecessary destructive war is how money is horribly spent. I am not interested in how either party is wasting as long as the waste doesn't involve "collateral damage". Can it get more hideous than that?
Politicians on both sides line their pockets with taxpayer money. This is not a new game. Read some history. It has always been this way. But killing our 'so called enemies' as well as our sons and daughters is UNFORGIVABLE.
YES! YOU ARE CORRECT! We very much CAN show them our disapproval!
"I think we should live in harmony with all living things"… what a beautiful idea. Unarguably something to strive for. As we have said earlier, strife enters when needs are in conflict. This is what is at the core of each of the trouble spots we’ve talked about… when one species, community’s or person's needs deprive another of what they need.
Nature resolves these situations by who/what is the smartest, strongest, or has the most perseverance. Humans hope to resolve conflicts in some way both sides get what they need, which we often call fairness. We try to step in when the strong, powerful, wealthy use their strength to treat the meek or less fortunate unfairly... through principles by which we write laws. Freedom and order are at opposite poles but complement each other.
We have seen a long expansion of freedom. Now, we are telling ourselves we are bringing order back or we're simply in an ordering mode. To live in harmony, to reorder up, this process requires the good will of participants. Restrictions work just the opposite. Our goal is elevated a person to BE better... to become a better person requires as full an education as possible, autonomy and responsibility over personal decisions and behaviors (self-governance), and a sense of belonging.
Currently there is a faction who think they know what is 'TRUTH.' And, they are willing to use their animal nature to power over other people's difference of opinion, other's needs, others safety. As you see, it creates stress, chaos, deaths, AND destroys the ability for harmony to happen. It takes no little faith in our fellow humans.
It’s less likely to happen again with a Senate, House, and White House that is steered by the adults rather than the recalcitrant teenagers with under developed frontal lobes! Vote ‘em out!!!

Thanks for those good wishes 😊
The media is having a fine time covering their version of what they call news. I watch BBC, CBC, EuroNews and even Reuter News more and more and NBC, CBS and ABC and CNN less and less. And I think the Democrats (and I am unfortunately one) have acted like idiots and should instead have framed the discussion around return the tax cuts from trump’s time in office or increase the debt limit.
Who or what are the "voices" that can break through the RED WALL? Seriously, is it the big pocket donors? These folks are so afraid of being primaried, that they are failing at legislating!!! Who can end this madness?
Thank you for saying what needs to be said so clearly. "Negotiation" as a descriptor has bothered me also but most of the media uses it. Why is that so? Fox News is not the only outlet.
Again, thank you!
