The Watering Hole: July 29 In a state of Limbo..

Will we as a country remain in a state of limbo while America continues to be held hostage, on the brink of economical disaster? Is this all theater? Or will today be the day these people put their extreme ideologies aside and just get it done…

All it would take would be a single paragraph on a single sheet of paper. Of course, that would be impossible beings their entire purpose in life right now for those on the Right is to bring President Obama down, and then blame him for the ensuing disaster in order to win the coming election. Perhaps after they succeed in destroying the economy they plan to rebuild it once again in their own image..

For where we stand right now, and what is likely to happen next, read Ezra Klein’s post today.

I think I’ve had enough. Today the TV stays off. I think I’ll take a walk or a nice drive..
