In Passing

Can’t handle the changes

"Whaddaya mean, ‘no more money’?”  Dept
Paco offers an analogy:
You gotta love the last half of this headline at The Hill:
"Progress seen in debt talks, but outrage from Dems over lack of tax hikes”
I swear, they’re like bandits who’ve successfully robbed trains for years and then get pissed off when the railroad goes bankrupt.

Related:  Reader Michael McFatter writes to Instapundit:
Thus far the Democrats have proved intractable on these negotiations.  But more than that, they seem to be living in denial...

None of these people work for a living. Their concept of where money comes from and how wealth is created (and destroyed) is completely divorced from reality because they live in a government bubble...

We’ve been negotiating with the President and The Democrats in Congress on the assumption that they’re sane. ... [But suppose] they’re not sane.  [Suppose] they want five apples and there’s only two plus two but they CAN’T ACCEPT that two plus two equals four. ... I’m worried they’ll pull the trigger on default as just one more "political” step in the march towards freedom from want or whatever other principle they’re operating under.
So, is it malevolence or stupidity?  Ultimately, it may not make any difference.

I've been saying for years that motive doesn't matter. The crime lies in the consequences of their actions. Time they should pay a few.
