  • To the editor:
    President Obama put it most succinctly that the GOP has a gun to our head as a country and economy. Don't know if it is an assault rifle or simply a little .22. But, it is all the same, to kill our economy.
    Oh, what does the debt ceiling mean? Authorize the money to pay our legal obligations already made. It is hard to believe the business friendly GOP free-market business advocates would encourage such an action. But, it can't be all that bad.
    For all you consumers out there that owe for water or elctricity that you have used, like about everyone each month; just don't pay. Tell the companies that you did not raise your authorization debt ceiling to accommodate their expenses. Wait and see if the companies would turn off everyones service.
    I figure if all those that owe did that, we would get an idea of what it would be like if the whole country did it. Would the companies trust the customers again? Since, the workers of the companies, most likely are customers and they quit paying, would that not be like shooting ourselves in the head? Once you pull the trigger, there is no going back!
