Armageddon is approaching. Congress is deadlocked. The bad guys are screaming, “We want the Marxist president to default on the country’s debt. We don’t care if interest rates rise, if this is the highest tax the American people will pay. As long as Obama and his Marxist administration do not benefit, taxes may rise. He, he, he…We merely want this president to fail us. We don’t care if we get damaged as a consequence. We are suicide bombers, and don’t forget it.”
The clock on the time bomb is clicking. Time is running out. The world is watching as heart rates are racing. Drama…Drama…
Can anyone disable this ticking bomb? Is James Bond around? Where is he?
Monday night… Too late for James Bond. He is too old already, retired in the Bahamas.
Then, a sign of hope. Breaking news out of the White House. CNN announces a presidential press conference. Anxiety...Excitement... We are going to tune in...
Is the president going to admit defeat? Are we about to plunge into this fireball and default?
What? What is he telling us? He is mad, isn’t he? He drops the F bomb. He points his middle finger at Capitol Hill.
Yes…Yes… He is raising the debt ceiling without having congressional authority. He is saving the world.
He is our new hero… He is the world’s hero.
Wow, am I relieved?
What? The bad guys are threatening impeachment?
Really, is that what Chutzpah is?
And I thought that the script ended happily, just like Hollywood.
Not to worry. It will. Unfortunately we will have to wait for the sequel.
