The United States is Now a Failed State.

This may be temporary. Republicans may come to their senses and sing Kumbaya....

Shit, what the hell am I saying.

Will the last elected representative to leave the House please turn out the lights.

Ethiopia, move your ass over. We want a chunk of the Couch.


The above was a statement of my utter disgust.

7. Canada can invade once they get rid of Stephen Harper

Granted he's still well to the left of most Democrats here, but if we're going to be invaded I'd prefer it be by someone who really balances out the right wing nuttery here.

8. We have has 16 government shutdowns in the last 30 years. While today's events

are tragic, the US is not a failed state today as it was not a failed state during the Carter, Regan, or Clinton administrations.

10. If you're only going back 30 years,

then that wouldn't include Carter.
