Po Pimps in 4th grade?

Maybe you have seen this maybe you haven't but here ladies and gentlemen is just another example of Common Core making sure that our children are ready for the world. I mean once they get through school they have to be able to survive and that's where Common Core comes in. I mean how else can they explain teaching kids about a song called Po Pimp in fourth grade.

No more money after 17 Oct.

In a move that seems oddly reminiscent of the play made during the debt limit fight last December when Treasury forced us to hit the debt limit earlier than expected, they now say that will happen Oct 17th. Forcing Congress to act within 2 weeks of the beginning of the new fiscal year.

Ok, so not really out of money, just not able to borrow any more, we will still have 30 billion or so on hand, plus whatever the government brings in for the month. Anyone else find it odd that right before the debt limit fight comes up news comes out about how we are broke and unable to borrow any more?

Yeah I don't find it odd either. I'm also pretty sure that it is nothing more than pressure applied to Boehner because they know he has no spine.

But I say screw it. Let's hit the debt limit. Let's make it so there is no more borrowing, once the initial screaming dies down we can get down to the problems at hand. The out of control spending. Once there is no money to spend on dumb things and pet projects, priorities get shuffled real quick.

Time to make D.C. learn some new priorities. So screw it, don't pass a debt limit deal. Give them nothing.

Your property is not your own.

I know what your thinking, the tin foil on your head is wrapped a bit too tight today. Loosen up a little bit, watch Cruz lay the smacketh down and have a drink. I assure you I will, but follow me here.

Two seventh grade students were suspended from school because they were playing with guns. Well Mr. Handbook you say, guns are not allowed in schools and should not be played with. True, except we are talking about air soft pellet pistols, and they were in their own yard.

Cruz quasi filibuster. But will it matter? UPDATED

I’m sitting here watching Ted Cruz give his speech on the Senate floor, and Mike Enzi just started asking his question about if there was a better way to have done this than to wait until the last minute. Well Mike yes, yes there was. That sir is not really the issue here, although it is a part of the problem.
