    Markets may take a tumble because we're on the verge of default.

    The odds of the government actually letting us slip into default are slim to none. They are mostly just grandstanding now.

    Although, it wouldn't surprise me if there was some market turmoil next week, as the big wall street traders love nothing more than a good panic. So they will try their best to make everyone think we are going to be annexed by China by Labor Day.

    Both side can't take credit for victory without a near disaster and last minute compromise

    I wonder how many people still think the bipartisan charade is real

    The problem is, it can't be a charade and still work. People have to believe in it or it all goes down the tubes

    Once the majority - or even a strong, vocal minority - realizes it's all a set up, then there really will be a revolution :)

    you know i enjoy the politics banter every so often, but yesterday really showed some people to be nothing more than name callers on both sides.

    kinda lame
