      I don't even know who I'm quoting here but if you really think about this, it is really the course that you would expect the Wall Street Journal to advocate.  The supposed leverage that the GOP is threatening to use is to refuse to raise the debt ceiling - thereby forcing the US to default on its Treasury securities, aka global calamity.  Wall Street and corporate America are not going advocate a global meltdown. Although I think this is a high stakes game of chicken, I just don't think our corporate masters are gonna allow a world depression to happen.
