YAWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN
I predict that whether we go over the cliff or not, NOTHING will happen.
Things will be about the same 1 year from now.
BUT, if the morans fark with the debt ceiling AGAIN, we might have our credit down-rated again.

Why do people panic in a situation that there's not a goddamned thing they can do about it?
I mean that as a general question. I can understand panicking if there is something that can be done and you don't know what or how to do it, but why panic otherwise?

Actually in emergency situations, when there is nothing you can do, that is precisely what causes panic.  When there are courses of actions and alternatives people can choose, there rarely is panic.

Because a recession here certainly doesn't affect Canada, right?

The effect is magnified here in Canada.  You guys would sneeze, and we would get a cold.  Used to be worse.  Now when you guys sneeze, we just sneeze also.  Your market dropped by 100 points, ours dropped by 200.   Now it is more even but US politics is actually more relevant to Canadians than Canadian politics IMHO.  Thus my obsession here on Fark.

Hilarious to see a Canadian so oblivious to how their economy works.

It was nice to see that pep rally a few minutes ago.  Not.

We're exporting the Tea Party to Canada. We'll get our revenge about an election or two from now

Congratulations to the Democrats, for proving once again why you are the worst political party in the history of the entire world.  This is why we voted Taxbongo out of office in November.

Panic is the nameless, faceless fear one feels when alone in the forest, caused by the occult presence of the god Pan. It's the same thing that causes an instinctive revulsion to Zamfir, the master of the pan flute.

No bites? Here, have a cookie.

"The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned."

GardenWeasel: No bites? Here, have a cookie.


Mmmmm coookie.

But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States

Hence neither pensions for southern civil war vets should be paid or any republican politician.

Even more hilarious is seeing Americans who think that the economy can be sustained by borrowing our prosperity and using the money to pay for jobs that create nothing.
