The Debt Ceiling

Democrats don't understand the debt ceiling.
Republicans don't understand the debt ceiling.
Liberals don't understand the debt ceiling.
Conservatives 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 its ceilings.

What do you think you should do? Raise the ceilings or pump out the sewage?


  1. ummm... wait, don't tell me... hahahaha!

    Have a lovely day, Sandee! big hugs xoxo

  2. That is way too simple of an explanation for a political mind.
    Of course most politicians are so full of s**t, that they think the neighborhood is supposed to smell that way. Just sayin'.

  3. Driller 'splained it sooo well! Yep, that's about right. Stinks, huh?!

    Big hugs, honey...

  4. ROFL! @Driller

    So true, sadly.

  5. You should form a committee to investigate why the sewer backed up. Then form another committee to look around to find out which consulting company to consult with. Then hire a company to examine the feasibility of raising the roof or lowering the sewerage. Then form another committee to decide on what to do.

    (the above is the shortened Government version)

    Have a great day!

  6. they'd think that smell was themselves they are so full of it!

    smiles, bee

  7. Vwery swlowlwy open the door.

  8. Fun. How much time do I get to ponder the answer?

  9. There are so many great comments here, I am not going to add to them. Driller's is the best. Too funny. Take care.

  10. I like the analogy. Politicians can't smell it because they are so full of it! Brilliant!

  11. Brilliant analogy. I can hear it now, the National War on Low Ceilings.
    The liberals will say the conservatives built the low ceilings on purpose.
    The conservatives will say everyone must raise their own ceilings;
    The Republicans will call for tax-breaks for those who raise their ceilings
    The Democrats will call for massive government programs to raise everybody's ceilings, then hire their buddies to do the work,
    and as normal the American Taxpayer is left wondering who's just going to stop the flow of crap into the house.

  12. Yep Driller has it right :)

  13. Excellent explanation. I agree w/Driller, those numbskulls in D.C. just can't think in simple terms.

  14. Politicians the world over don't seem to understand much or pretend that they don't! LOL Sadly the citizens pay when they make errors and do crazy things.

  15. Raise the ceiling for sure. Just kidding!


  16. Is burning down the house an option?

  17. Everyone missed the nobama answer to ever'thang: it's Bush's fault!

  18. The answer is a simple one, but by raising the ceiling on a regular basis it means those powerful and super rich folks can keep on getting even richer while the rest of us drown!
