Debt Ceiling - NOT The Issue

Barry, My Liege :

We pray you be clear on the issue.

The debt ceiling is NOT the issue.

Social Security is the issue.

My Liege, the greedy rich bastards with all the money want to steal our social security.

That's what is really happening.

Threats of harm to the debt ceiling are merely crude leverage - the tactics of thugs - to force you into giving up our old age comforts.

The United States of America does not negotiate with terrorists; and, these, My Liege, are terrorists and thugs.

Boehner and the Reps are simply paid employees of the greedy rich thugs.

Please do not negotiate with them. They can only win and we can only lose. They have no power here unless you give it to them. And we voted for you so you would resolve these issues cleanly and fairly.

A better tactic is to use the 14th Amendment and extend the debt ceiling by Executive Order.

'Section 4.

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.'

Here's what will happen after you issue the Order.

Three things will happen when you issue the order and extend the ceiling.

First, you will have the Reps' gang's attention.

Second, you will have the gratitude of everyone in the country except for the small gang of thieves.

Last, there is only a 25% chance that the thieves will take you to the Supreme Court to force a reversal. If they should try that tactic, it will be the death rattle of the Republican Party. No sane person will ever trust a party which sues the President in the Supreme Court in order to ruin both the economy and the full faith and credit of the United States.

Your faithful servant,
