    A complicated situation can be explained in such simple terms!

    THE DEBT CEILING

    * Democrats don't understand THE DEBT CEILING

    * Republicans don't understand THE DEBT CEILING

    * Liberals don't understand THE DEBT CEILING

    * NO ONE understands THE DEBT CEILING

    * SO - Allow me to explain...

    Let's say you come home from work and find there has
    been a sewer backup in your neighborhood. Your home has sewage all the way
    up to your ceilings.

    What do you think you should do? Raise the ceilings or pump out the ****?
    Your choice is coming in November. Don't miss the opportunity.

    Ho-hum! Just another coffin-nail, scratch, scratch. Turn the TV up Martha, and bring me another beer.

    The best analogy for the budget is this:

    Somebody is 100 pounds overweight. They got that way from consistently eating too much. Here are two options, pick one:

    1) Reduce daily food intake about 30% to cause the weight to come to correct value in about six months.

    2) Cut off all food until weight is correct.

    Notice that a side effect of #2 is THE PERSON DIES.

    The republicans and other idiots just say CUT ALL SPENDING SO THAT THE BUDGET IS IMMEDIATELY BALANCED. In reality, cutting that much that fast would plunge the economy and most of the world into another bottomless pit of recession.

    We need to reduce spending but do it responsibly. Over time we can reverse the rising debt celing and get the debt to go down.

    Drastically reducing the debt would hurt in the short run but would help in the long run.

    Continuing the liberal spending will drive us off a cliff.

    My vote is for drastic cuts.
