First today, I would like to thank everyone for their support. I would especially like to thank Cletis, thebookofcletis.blogspot.com, and everyone from Think Progress and Political Wire as well as the people who have posted me on Facebook. I started this thing last Monday, April 4, because I wanted to have a positive outlet for my concerns (ok, anger) about some of the political silliness and downright meanness that some of our elected officials pull. I have never been much of a writer, so, hopefully I will get better.
Please pass this little blog along, if you have the chance. I hope it will be fun and informative.
The next crisis looming on the horizon is the raising of the nation debt. If the congress does not raise the debt ceiling when due, the US will default on its loans. Both the Republicans and Democrats know this. A few of the "rabid right" would like to see this happen, but most representatives of both parties will try to avert this.
The "West Wing" had a wonderful spot on raising the debt ceiling, but I couldn't find it to post. If someone has that clip, please send me the link.
