The Debt Ceiling Farce
The politicians are playing the usual Deficit Ceiling game again. Of course, the so-called Deb tCeiling is meaningless as the "ceiling" is always raised. But having something called the "Deb tCeiling" gives the Republican rubes the illusion that SOMETHING IS BEING DONE about deficits.
Of course, the trillions that the United States has spent to improve the economy has done nothing. And instead of spending the money on something productive (like the Hoover Dam), the money was spent ensuring huge bonuses to the bankers, buying guns for Mexican drug gangs and promoting "diversity".
The Omaha Public Schools used more than $130,000 in federal stimulus dollars to buy each teacher, administrator and staff member a manual on how to become more culturally sensitive.
