    •  What is truly scary is that this was all contrived (4+ / 0-)

      by a deviant religious faction hellbent on the end times being manipulated by old money enemies of the new deal.

      That's what is scary to me.

      Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).

      but shutting down the government backlogged home loans, small business loans, refinancing for maintenance and repairs. Interest rates went back up because of the uncertainty.

      Now I hear we are on the hook for 24 Billion. I figure that is about $160 per taxpayer and we all ought to be able to take it off our taxes as a loss and compensate for that by garnishing the wages of the Republicans in the House that did all the damage.
