    The simple answer is  that even after this crisis and the debt ceiling crisis coming next, what we the people do is the final link in the chain of responsibility.

    We can fire their ass, or we can make threats, but ultimately what you do with a rabid dog isn't dependent on somebody sitting down with it and trying to make it see reason.

    October 1 is here in three hours. In three hours the supporters of the crazy will begin realizing that Obama care costs them less than their present insurance. From there the slippery slope gets steeper and steeper.

    Along with that they aren't going to get paid. When people don't bring home the expected paycheck the shit rolling down the steeper and steeper slippery slope finally hits the fan and then we the people begin to get medieval on their ass.

    I'm seeing mobs in the streets, pitchforks and torches, the bums getting thrown out or maybe more correctly tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail with the noses broken off their statues, and the text of their inscriptions ground off.

      But so far, the idea that the populace notes the crazy and punishes it hasn’t given us much relief. At some point, maybe. But how crazy it does it have to get? Who the hell knows?
