  •  How is Senator Lindsay Graham's (5+ / 0-)

    overt threats to the economic security of over 300 Million of his fellow Americans not treasonous behavior?

    "Let me tell you what's involved if we don't lift the debt ceiling: financial collapse and calamity throughout the world. That's not lost upon me..."
    -- US Senator Lindsay Graham
    This was in Jan, 2011. This bastard knows full well what he is threatening to do, and always has.

    He is, quite literally, putting the baseless, proven-not-to-work-as-stated fiscal policies of the Republican Party above the Good Faith and Credit of These United States.

    In my book, that is treasonous behavior, by a member of the United States Senate.

    Nothing more, nothing less.

      for Graham and congressional Republicans, but the sad truth is that this is the reality of our political discourse now and into the near future.  This is what we've got and are going to keep dealing with unless something drastic occurs that would remove these psycopathic obstructionists from power right away.

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
