There is a time in life when it is acceptable to make stuff up and pretend it is real. It is called childhood.
We now have people in the Congress of the U.S.A. who are doing that about the unnecessary “debt limit crisis” with consequences to both America and the world. They believe that they are doing good, which is very bad for us all. The American dollar has been the safest place to put the world’s money and it will not be if we default. China will be glad to take that role. We need to get these crazies out of government as soon as possible.
If we do not do that, most of us will survive but it will not be pretty.
