    Default What the Congressman Said (CTG)

    A couple of reflections on the current U.S. debt crisis. For anyone who has not been following this, the United States might default on its debt unless a deal to raise the debt ceiling is reached in Congress by next Tuesday.



    What the Congressman Said

    If the nation's finances default,
    don't blame me! It isn't my fault.
    Though we're in to the hilt
    I will not share the guilt
    when the USA grinds to a halt.

    Another on the same theme....

    In the Halls of Congress

    Makes us sick to think
    we are once more on the brink
    as disaster looms
    and Congress endlessly talks
    in the same stuffy rooms.

    I may have shared my dangly bits
    with any out there that have *its
    I may have hid myself from view
    while south of the border I did screw
    I may have dallied too with witches
    But, hell no! You can't have my riches

    So what's the skinny Chris? The news here is all doom and gloom, do the Republicans really propose to bomb themselves back to the stone-age?

    It's all right for them now, I guess after the last two bail-outs.
