If Wishes Were Horses….. (or, My Simple Solution to the Debt Ceiling Crisis)

On Friday, we got the latest edict from on high:

Hey, I’ve got a great idea to solve our country’s debt problems!  Let’s just gather up all of the straw across the nation; find some miller’s daughters, some magic dwarves, and a bunch of spinning wheels; and before you know it, we will have enough gold to pay all of our outstanding bills and obligations!

    Ok, there is one downside. This will drive the gold prices right into the crapper! Other than that, go fur it! (And following the logic of all those high feluten ecconomists out there, if we need more because the current price of gold is down….simple, we just make more!!)
