Donuel BS: Threat of the week (15) BS: Threat of the week 23 Sep 21


Yeah its me who else?
The minority in Congress can steal time and pay a game of delay or shut down. The US is facing another government shut down, it has lately been a waiting game of disaster to see how close to midnight a consensus is reached.
In two weeks the US government may shut down if repubs don't vote to pay the bills that Trump rang up (5 trillion). Its called passing the debt ceiling. It was created in 1917 to placate those opposed to WW1 involvement and the great expense war would cost.
What happens if the US Congress does not pass the debt ceiling in time?    There would be a 15 trillion dollar loss of wealth amoung our citizens by paying more interest and penalties on government borrowed $.   I 'tossed' off a little parody for just such a situation that is looming next Monday . 'The threat of the week' is a government shut down to the tune of...

Lyrics - pARODY

Oh, baby let's take it down tonight (ba-ba-ba, bum)
Ooh baby, I'm hot just like an oven (give me some money, give me some money)
I need some 'cold cash'
And baby, I can't hold it much longer (give me some money, give me some money)
It's getting stronger and stronger
When I get that feeling
I want a debt ceiling
A big debt ceiling, oh baby
Makes me feel so fine
Helps to relieve my mind
A big debt ceiling baby, is good for me
A big debt ceiling is something that's good for you
Whenever blue teardrops are fallin'
And my emotional stability is leaving me
There is something I can do
I can get on the telephone and just lobby the, Congress
And Congress I know you'll be there to relieve me
The love you give to me will free me
If you don't know the thing you're dealing
Oh I can tell you, Congress, that it's a big debt ceiling
Let's all vote tonight
(Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up)
'Cause you got some work
Baby, I got sick this mornin' (please stop the shut down, please stop the shut down)
A sea was stormin' inside of me
Congress, I think I'm capsizin'(please stop the shut down, please stop the shut down)
The debt is risin' and risin'
And when I get that feeling
I need a big debt ceiling
A big debt ceiling is good for me
Makes me feel so fine, it's such a rush
Helps to relieve the mind, and it's good for us
Don't shut down the government it's bad for me
Don't shut down the government that's bad for us
God, it's bad for me and it's so bad for the country, oh
Come take control, just grab a hold
Of my body and mind, soon we'll be printing more money
I'll be feeling fine
You're my medicine, open up and let me in
Darling, you're so great, I can't wait for you to operate
(pay the debt ceiling)
(pay the debt ceiling)
I can't wait for you to operate
When I get this feeling (please stop the shut down)
I need a debt ceiling
Oh, when I get this feeling (please stop the shut down)
I need a big debt ceiling
I gotta have a big debt ceiling, Congress (please pay our bills)
'Cause I'm all alone
I need a big debt ceiling, Congress (No Filibuster)
'Til you come back home (please no Filibuster)
Please don't procrastinate
We don't need to masturbate
