We just dealt with the debt ceiling a few weeks ago. The Senate has reached a deal to forestall the shutdown that is scheduled for the end of this month, 30 September. This supposedly keeps everything running until Friday, 18 November. After that we’ll be in an election year. I wonder what surprises await us then.
I took physics. And if everything goes as planned I’ll be taking more physics next Spring. But in all the lectures on thermodynamics, pressure, force etc. I never thought it was possible to create a vacuum within a vacuum until the TSA. You suck. You sucked when you were just doing the non-invasive stuff. The confiscations suck. The scanners suck. The groping sucks. But when you threatened to shut down Texas airports because we want to draw a line and keep you from crossing it, you achieved a level of suckage such that you turned the damn thing inside out.
