It's not over yet. The House hasn't voted yet and the House is the home of
the dumbest of the dumb. In that body I believe you could find a one to one

time is not a important thing for the Government of the United States to do
and those who think the universe was created in 6 days less than 6 thousand
years ago.

If a congressman feels that the debt limit shouldn't go higher on January
15 then they should vote to spent less money RIGHT NOW, don't wait till
1159PM on January 14 and say you're not going to pay for the new stuff YOU
