Nobel Prize-winning economist the American Public overwhelmingly feels that America will probably collapse if the debt ceiling is not raised, but also feels like, eh, leave the debt ceiling where it is.A new WaPo/ABC News poll shows that 71% of Americans believe that failure to pay government debts would be catastrophic, and yet a majority support raising the debt limit only if there are deep cuts to federal programs. The American Dream will now be known by its new name, American Fatalism. Have we really decided that it's just The End? Everybody else's home has a foreclosure sign outside of it, so why not the government, too?


The Washington Post reports:

The poll suggests that people believe such warnings. But large blocs — particularly among Republicans and independents — still do not like the idea of permitting the national debt to continue its upward spiral. Nor do they particularly like their options for reducing the debt.

The political backdrop shows risks for both parties. When asked who they trust to address the nation’s biggest problems, a record 20 percent of Americans — and more than a third of political independents — said they have faith in “neither” party. That’s the highest percentage in polls going back nearly 30 years.

Yes, that pretty much sounds like The End. Everybody hates the government, because it is useless, and Americans are so annoyed they're going, screw the entire global economy, we need to Teach Someone a Lesson about borrowing and all be homeless together, forever. [WaPo]

In what seems like a perfectly logical move where corporations are people, MGM International Resorts is suing all the victims of the Las Vegas massacre in federal court. But don't worry -- at least the company isn't seeking damages from them for its own corporate pain and suffering! Instead, the lawsuit is a maneuver to head off liability claims related to the mass shooting last October 1, as is only right and just. All they want is what's coming to them, like immunity from damages and some ill will from consumers, which will no doubt blow over eventually.

Do-Nothing Republicans Continue Doing Nothing About Traitor Trump

Can you keep a crook in office while not looking crooked yourself?

Russia

Monday in Helsinki, Donald Trump stood next to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the official sponsor of Trump's White House reality show, and glibly debased America and its institutions in exchange for a soccer ball, which frankly is more than his soul was ever worth. Republican leaders, defenders of liberty all, strongly condemned the president's actions. House Speaker Paul Ryan went so far as to say, "There's no place for this. [He] should apologize. That's dangerous for our society, that's dangerous for our democracy."

Sorry, no, that was a statement Ryan made when Rep. Maxine Waters suggested citizens personally let members of Trump's cabinet know how much they suck. Ryan's actual statement post-Helsinki reminded me more of the "vaguebooking" your friend posts on social media when their marriage is collapsing.

There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world. That is not just the finding of the American intelligence community but also the House Committee on Intelligence. The president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy.

"Sometimes you realize you should've listened to your family and friends. You should trust they know what's best for you. It can turn out that your heart was wrong all along."
