The debt ceiling

I love simple solutions to vexing problems that, seemingly, graduates of Yale, Harvard, and other Ivy League schools cannot comprehend let alone resolve. 

I love it when a complicated situation can be explained in such simple terms!

THE DEBT CEILING

* Democrats don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
* Republicans don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
* Liberals don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
* NO ONE understands THE DEBT CEILING

* SO, allow me to explain.

Let's say you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood.
Your home has sewage all the way up to your ceiling.

What do you think you should do --

1. raise the ceiling, or
2. pump out the sewage?

Your choice is coming in November.





P.S.
A great song from Big Island musician Chris Kua. He composed "Hurricane Iselle Song"

Let's say you come home and find your house full of sewage. You call the pumping company and they come and pump it out. You pay with a credit card. You have two choices: tell Visa that you won't pay your bill because you really don't want to go into debt. Pay the bill, because you went into debt when you handed the card to the pumping company, and it's the honorable thing to do. Also, in Alaska, we call "sewage" by what it is: shit. The national debt is not incurred paying for cleaning up shit. It pays for national defense, national parks, and our government which protects our skies, water, medicines to name but a few of the government's functions.
