South Carolina Congresscritter Mick Mulvaney is one of several Republicans who are very certain that allowing the October 17th debt limit deadline to pass wouldreally be no big deal, because even though the U.S. has always paid its bills, that's no reason that we always have to, right? What's the worst that could happen, other than a little worldwide financial meltdown?


Turns out that Mr. Mulvaney knows a thing or two about not paying bills! James Earl Carter IV's Yelling At The TV has copies of Mulvaney's business records!

Mulvaney may be speaking from experience: He doesn’t pay all of his bills, and it doesn’t seem to have bothered him at all.

The Congressman’s company, The Mulvaney Group Ltd, owes Mecklenburg County, NC at least $7,854.65 in back taxes. The oldest of the bills was due on September 1, 2008.

And so it just seems fair to ask: Since Mick Mulvaney has successfully avoided paying the money he owes without triggering a worldwide financial crisis, why shouldn't it be the same for the entire debt of the United States? This is just logic, people, and it's about fairness. Mulvaney is all about fairness -- he's the asshat who last spring asked the House to hold a few extra meaningless votes to kill Obamacare so that newly elected Republican members could get in on the fun, too.

Besides, there is a very good reason to hold off paying our bills, and that reason is something that will be revealed very soon, once the Republicans have finished pulling it out of their ass and prettying it up for Fox News.

We know a few things about Donald Trump for 100% certain.

One is that his brain is broken. There are a million examples, but here's one, from this afternoon:

MICHAEL. FLYNN. PLEADED. GUILTY. TO. LYING. TO. THE. FBI!

A judge is not "looking into that situation," you fucking moron!

OK let us not get distracted, as that is not the point of this post.

Another thing we know about Donald Trump is that he sniffs A LOT. During all the debates, he sniffed. During lots of his Hitler rally speeches, he sniffs. When he's on foreign soil, he sniffs. When he's hunkered athwart his golden toilet Makin' Twitters, we assume he sniffs.

My idiot brother used to get that face during rants

Kentucky's Extra-Crispy wingnut governor Matt Bevin sure knows how to pick a fight. A few years back, during his failed bid to primary Mitch "Top Turtle" McConnell, Bevin explained how "chicken boxing" was a benign pastime that even the founding fathers enjoyed, and also a great big states' rights issue. Once in office, he was, predictably, a reliable supporter of stupid ideas, like spending a lot of money to ramp up a "work requirements" bureaucracy to make sure fewer people received Medicaid, thus spending more but claiming he'd "saved" money. He also claimed this year that striking teachers probably caused an invisible wave of child rape and death, because kids weren't in school. No, of course there wasn't any such result, but hey, it's OK, Bevin eventually not-pologized.

Bevin's other specialty is trying to drum up a good culture-war panic, like that time in 2016 when he predicted there'd be bloodshed if Hillary Clinton were elected, because sane governors predict civil war all the time. That desire to warn of impending calamity seems to be behind Bevin's latest idiocy, a Twitter rant yesterday in response to national investigative nonprofit ProPublica's decision to partner with the Louisville Courier-Journal for coverage of state government. So it only makes sense Bevin would lose his shit over the fact that one of the many sources of funding for ProPublica is George Soros's Open Society Foundation. How dare those monsters bring their radical leftist "reporting" to the Commonwealth of Kentucky!
