I haven’t posted for a few weeks, but I’ve been closely watching the US inching closer to a disastrous dumb default. Listening to popular news media, you would have been bombarded by continuous bullshit from the “Freedom Caucus” and Donald Trump saying that a default would be a good thing (TM). And complaints that Joe Biden wasn’t doing anything to solve the problem.
And yet, somehow magically, the problem was solved. Done. Biden has signed the bill, a whole two days before the world economy would start crashing on Monday.
Most importantly, the Freedom Caucus showed that it just wants attention, but was a paper tiger, “Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
The good news? Bipartisan government is back. And Biden knew what he was doing. The far-right Republicans won’t be able to pull this stunt again for at least 2 years.
