    I keep wondering if a lawsuit could be brought to abolish the debt limit.

    David Atkins (“thereisnospoon”):The debt ceiling has always been somewhat preposterous: how is it Constitutional to have to approve debt for spending that has already been approved? Isn’t that pretty much the definition of calling into question the “full faith and credit of the United States?”

    So, could anyone of standing (who looses $ as a result of higher interest because of these bullshit negotiations) sue to call the limit unconstitutional and strike down the law?

    OK, I followed the link, which led me to a site that says the film is in production. I skipped all over that site, and didn’t find a place to actually view or buy the full version. I went to amazon, and that didn’t have any clue of where to buy or view it.

    so, ??? …… is it in theaters? hbo? help me here.

    The lifespan of the first 14 justices:

    56 . 84 . 78 . 68 . 58 . 48 . 87 . 61 . 70 . 62 . 67 . 55 . 80 . 63

    The founders were very used to having people live into their 70′s and 80′s. Especially rich people.

    The life expectancy was shortened by disproportionate infant mortality and the death of women in childbirth. Men and women who lived through that often lived well into their 70′s.

    I’m curious, why is it that you are using Melissa McEwan’s handle?

    If the middle class didn’t notice the Obama tax cuts when they happened, will they notice them going away?
