    treason HOWEVER when McConnell said that they are going to use the debt ceiling as a hostage and he says he knows that it will not only crash the US economy, it will crash the world economy, well, then it certainly fits the definition of criminal treason...

    TREASON, crim. law. This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance. 4 Bl. Com. 75.
    To whom is McConnell pledging his allegiance? The top 2%? As businessmen and traders, they most certainly don't want the instability nor downgrade of credit rating. Or is it an allegiance only unto himself, throwing his lot to the teajadists, trying to avoid a primary challenge?

    McConnell has done a lot of disturbing stunts -- but his declaration that they will crash the world economy is beyond the pale.

    And when is the media going to report that the debt ceiling is simply allowing payment of our debt, not accumulating additional debt?

    It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America. -- Molly Ivins
