This has nothing to do with the stalemate over the debt ceiling crisis. At all.
A Summertime Quiz (and you thought school was out for a few months):
Does the following quote come from:
A. Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince
B. Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, Manifesto of the Communist Party
C. Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power
D. Vladimir Lenin, What is to be Done?
E. None of the above
Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! Look, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; … You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. You have condemned and put to death the righteous man; he does not resist you.”
I’ll give the answer on August 1st. Maybe Congress and the President will have answers to other questions by then.
