    So the story has been told. Actually the Republicans tend raise the debt ceilings in votes all the time. Over the weekend, then the back rooms have been operating as is usual.

    GOP Leaders Slowly Convincing Fellow Republicans to Raise the Debt Ceiling - Reid Wilson - Politics - The Atlantic

    Conservatives--Probably Blue Dog Democrats--have likely been reminding all elected federal legislators without except: That in the world anymore, without good credit, there is no money.

    Money is no longer gold, silver, diamonds, hashish, salt, shiniy beads and trinkets, or donuts. Money is credit.

    Take away credit, then you take away Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland--and with guess whole holding a lot of notes--even Europe and China.

    There are parts of the world where wives and cattle still have value, in daily commerce. Abraham Lincoln, however, has been dead for a very long time. Even the Liberian Movement has been dead for a very long time.

    No it's Hawaiian, Instead(?)!

    The Establishment GnOP, driven by the corporate masters that give them huge bags of cash, are not going to let the upstart Teabaggers take away their cash cow. The corporate masters surely don't want the US defaulting.

    What are "traditional conservative values"? Besides slavery I mean? Oh, and hate the gays and block women's rights? What are the others?

    Captain Jean Luc-Picard stated the Conservative Position most succinctly, in a galaxy: Far, Far Away!

    "The economics of the future is somewhat different. You see, money doesn't exist in the 24th century. The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity."

    The Conservative intent fo rAugust 2, 2011, however: May not entirely be like that.

    The Socialist Agenda, however, is becoming remarkably not, "We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity." The widely-known about Federation of Planets was Socialist, and of the Inter-Galactic Workers of The Worlds!

    That too, is not now. The Liberals will be contending for infra-structure spending, clearly, going into 2012. Someone will also have to start contending for computing-awareness in law: Wherein now entire professions are computing-challenged.
