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.

The mass murders at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, and at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, are still killing people. Two survivors of Parkland killed themselves in the past week, and this morning, the body of the father of one of the Sandy Hook children was found in Newtown. And something like 35,800 guns will be sold today, if 2019 stats are comparable to 2018 sales figures. But cheer up -- without Barack Obama scaring everyone with his promise to take all the guns, that's down 16 percent from the highest gun sales in history in 2016. Then again, despite the lower gun sales, there were nearly 40,000 deaths caused with firearms in 2018. It was the third record year in a row. We're Number One.

The news has been just horrifying. On March 17, Sydney Aiello, 19, who'd been on campus at Stoneman Douglas the day of the 2018 massacre, killed herself. She'd been a close friend of one of the girls who died in the shooting, and had been diagnosed with PTSD, according to her mother. She had started college but found it hard to just to sit in classrooms because of her fears that a gunman might burst in. Then, this weekend, another Stoneman Douglas student, a male sophomore, as yet unidentified, killed himself -- like Ms. Aiello, with a gun.

Today, police in Newtown found the body of Jeremy Richman, a neuropharmacologist and the father of Avielle Richman, who was only 6 years old when she was one of the 20 children and six adults murdered at Sandy Hook in 2012. Richman and his wife, Jennifer Hensel, had founded a nonprofit to research the neurological problems that might lead to violent behavior. The foundation had an office in the complex where Richman's body was found. The couple were also among the Sandy Hook parents suing Alex Jones for spreading the false conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook massacre was faked as part of a plot to take all the precious guns away.
