We are headed for default. Boner's statements on CBS this evening suggest they think the result of default will be either a negotiated reduction in government spending - read social safety net contraction while the surveillance industrial complex remains fully funded - or it will result in forced, Greek style austerity measures.
The Koch whores, their bankers, and the fossil fuel industry they all invest in, ensure they will weather any financial storm just fine, so long as fossil fuels remain king. A government in perpetual crisis and chaos cannot support any new innovation or alternatives.
Into this chaos pipelines will parade, tar sands will flow, and geo-engineering will be the investment bet of the future - bet or wager being the operative word. There is no certainty that either geo-engineering will provide any solution, or that the human species will survive. Yet if we default, and if default is the route to the Keystone XL, then we will certainly be left with no alternative. Geo-engineering will simply have to work, and that is by no means certain.
The President appeared less certain this evening than he has in recent days; as if he had just recently been assured that default was a probability, that the teabag faction saw no downside to such an event. Reelection funding is assured, think tank propaganda all lined up and ready, all courtesy of the Kochs and their whores. With polls consistently trending negatively for repelicans, they may think they have nothing to loose with default, and hold out hope of dragging their opponents down with them.
The only solution is a continued display of confidence, acceptance, and a carefully designed campaign of facts and reality. It falls to the President to tell these fools:
- GROW THE FUK UP
And he had better start breaking some legs to ensure that they do.
