Look I'm no Bill O'Reilly or Chris Matthews or anyone super political like that. But I understand enough to know if the dolts we sent to Washington didn't get their act together and take the steps to keep us from killing the world economy, it would be bad. Very bad.

So it's a good thing they finally got their act together and got this thing settled. Yeah it raises the debt ceiling and all that, but crippling the world economy? Do we really want to be that country? And this act will "preserve the USA's sterling credit rating"...really? With all the troubles we have balancing budgets and spending and all that, we have a sterling credit rating? If that's true, How is my credit score not 976?

Here's the story from Yahoo: "Congressional leaders reach agreement to raise the debt ceiling"
