This debt limit issue may send the United States and the World into the downturn of a
century. Picture that. We could be within days of choosing between desperate
times and reasonable answers.
As a crusty sergeant once offered: “This mess better get straightened out yesterday”.

The eleventh-hour debt limit crisis was an avoidable problem. But it wasn’t.
Our Founding Fathers are no longer amused. Congress has proven foolishness has no age limit.
