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.

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
