AMERICAN FALL

@CJ_Marchello Tonight on @cspan : The decline and fall of the American Empire!!! #debtceilings

@sznq @esukop the American Empire is in sunset mode. Like the British Empire was 100 years or so ago.

@aliceinreality I guess the sun has to set on the American empire, too. And in true stereotypical American style, it goes down loud & stupid.

@sporkmarketing Check it out – we made this: American families and their hefty debt load INFOGRAPHIC

@ytjepoppinga The rise and fall of the North American Empire? Hope we see white smoke before the 2nd of August. This uncertainty is killing.

DANGEROUS GAMES

Kicking the can down the road has led to a US debt ceiling cris… link (via @PsychToday)

@whitehouse We know what we have to do to reduce our deficits, there’s no point in putting the economy at risk by kicking the can further down the road.

@angelsavant @BuckeyeVoter and the whole debt ceiling issue is just kicking the can for the fed debt cycle and not the solution.

@Corcoran310 “Kicking the can down the road” is quickly replacing “rammed that bill down the people’s throat” as my favorite political metaphor.

@Alicebonniesmom Elected officials keep “kicking the can down the road.” They should put on gym shoes & knickers, & meet in the alley to resolve debt crisis!
