>>To carry your analogy further, what happens if you hit it right in the center of your opponent’s service court and your opponent and the official both yell “OUT” without even trying to return it?<<
And that is why I don’t take this game seriously. It sorta reminds me of the movie “Stick it”.
And did I mention I am driving from Seattle (my home since 1966) to my new home in rural Kentucky farmland next Monday. I’m sure it is only coincidental that we are leaving one day before Debt Ceiling day. ;-)
As I watch the impotent congress and Urkel attempt to solve a problem that is 10 levels above their pay grade, I realize just how hopeless it is that this thing will end anything CLOSE to “well”. I see it as clearly as I see the thunder clouds coming with the prevailing winds towards my plateau in Kentucky. I realized this week that any and all doubt has been removed from my mind regarding the catastrophe that is looming LITERALLY just around the corner.
Even if we dodge the bullet this year, there is no way next year’s election cycle will not be the actual catalyst if it continues to only fester until then.
The title of my “goodbye” email to my work mates at my company is “So Long, and Thanks For The Fish”.
Where I am going does not guarantee survival or comfort, but it certainly reduces risk.
Good move. I think I remember you mentioning buying that place on a thread some time ago.
So Long, and Thanks For The Fish :)
Not sure where you’re going in KY, but I’m here with access to 2k + acres surrounded by hills. Nice vantage point to see the bastids coming.
Be ready, KY is one of the most over-taxed welfare burdened states in the Union. Your taxes won’t be much lower than WA state, but it is easier to defend.
