We should be putting the blame on the republicans or the democrats or the independents or the tea party. The government needs to stop bickering over small things and get stuff done. The UG community could have solved the debt ceiling in about a day. The government needs the get its head together.

What does it mean? Hopefully, it means that the people in office will stop acting like stubborn dickheads and try to get shit back on track. But they won't. Because they're high level politicians, since when do they care about the country?

It means if they can't come up with a real plan for their runaway spending, there's a real possibility the credit rating could take another hit in 6 months. If your credit rating takes enough of a hit, then nobody will lend money to you. No money and your country goes belly up.

They announced that they're reconsidering downgrading.

It means all US government issued debt is going to cost more, and all debt in the US market is subsequently going to become more expensive. This is basically going to lead to a double-dip recession.

The politicians, being politicians, are going to act like fucktards and pretend that they're hard done by when it's their fault that the stupid fucking cunts couldn't put aside ideology for a single moment and actually deal with this shit.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Republicans are retarded, i wish there were many others to blame but they aren't. To think people actually vote them in.

Nothing to do with ideology. Had to do with politicians as self-interested, rational beings. They are hamstringed by what they need for reelection, mainly their links to wealthy individuals, corporations, banks, and the like. Real conundrum. They cannot make the decisions to remedy the problems that exist, because it will mean they will not be reelected, and and by not doing what needs to be done, the economy and the country will suffer. To do what would help the country as a whole would be what would sink their own lives/careers.

That is life. ****ed regardless.

I don't know what it could mean for the future, but I do foresee more partisan-squabbling and finger pointing than ever before.
I honestly don't understand partisan politics. It's like rooting for half a football team but claiming the other half are complete imbeciles. And vice versa.

It makes sense, tbh.

You have two competing coalitions that are in a struggle over scarce resources. Each is looking to strengthen their own coalition, to get more. Thus, they tend to demonize the other, creating justification for their attempted seizure of their resources. Think about this in a class based sense. Upper class want more wealth and claim that they deserve it, lower taxes for them are better for everyone, etc... The lower classes will say that they deserve more, that the higher classes need to pay their share, etc... Both sides want to advantage themselves, and they use moral justification to rationalize their wants, concealing the fact that they really just want more access to scarce resources. That is pretty much what all conflict is based off, scarce resources.

Apparently, it also means that UG cannot set aside its partisan mindset and blame all politicians. Or I should say, some of UG. Enough with the blaming of one side or the other. It was all of the House and Senate's fault! ALL!

Also all Americans faults too then, eh? I mean, they elected those people, right?
