Y'know, I find myself wishing sometimes that SS checks would be suspended for a while.

Because of the debt ceiling, that is. It's mean of me to think like that, I know, but imagine the weeping and wailing and gnashing of MAGA teeth.

Well, son-of-a-bitch!

A lot of people have expressed the opinion that America would be better off as a monarchy.

Cool idea. Let's ask Barack Obama, George Soros, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, or Stacy Abrams if they'd be interested in being the monarch.

Speculation: Kacsmaryk has a back channel to 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

I'm speculating that they told him they won't uphold a full-on mifepristone prohibition, so he's looking to punt in such a way that doesn't get him reversed but also not lynched by forced-birthers.

I think I'll start a spinoff to the "Pro-Life" movement.

I'll call it "Pro-Fatherhood."

The central principle is this: every man will be legally required to contribute financially to every child he has ever sired, full stop. Since life "begins at fertilization", that implies that every man will be retroactively billed for expenses incurred by a woman in pregnancy before the child is tested to know that it is his.

Be a big hit, dontcha think?

I think it's likely the R House members demanding terms for raising the debt ceiling...

...is a smoke screen. I think it's more likely they plan to block any increase in the debt ceiling and thereby drive America's economy (and the world's) right off a cliff.

Much more effective than lighting the Reichstag on fire.

Before Boebert, Greene, Gaetz, et al. threaten to default on the debt...

...and give the world economy a multi-trillion dollar haircut and make a whole lot of wealthy people throughout the world a lot less wealthy, they might contemplate the fate of Jamal Khashoggi,who was just a journalist saying stuff.

Important to remember that an American debt default will cause a WORLDWIDE crisis.

What do you suppose the other countries will do after we totally eff their economies?

If the Republican Party is this broken, maybe it's time that some R's switch parties.

Enough to hand control back to the D's.

Either that, or Biden should restart the discussion about minting the trillion-dollar coin.

Over at predictit.org, you can trade (or bet if you will) on various things, like....

...individual Senate or House races or control of the Senate or House. You could at one time bet on Trump being indicted before 9/1/2022. Obviously, that market is settled. I can't seem to find any market trading in Trump being indicted any time in the future. It's almost like no one takes the possibility seriously.
