* Democrats don't understand THE DEBT CEILING

* Republicans don't understand THE DEBT CEILING

* Liberals don't understand THE DEBT CEILING

* Conservatives don't understand THE DEBT CEILING


SO - Allow me to explain...


Let's say you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood. Your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings. What do you think you should do? Raise the ceilings or pump out the "stuff"? Your choice is coming in November. Don't miss the opportunity.

Good morning Joe,

We could use a good flush for sure!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Good morning, Joe Petrowsky oh, I love it.... so glad I stopped by today or I would have missed this one....

Joe, I would most definitely pump the crap out of my house, clean up, restore, and get back to living without the crap.

Now the Million Dollar Question:  How do I achieve that in November? (LOL)!

Posted by Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist, Probate Real Estate (KD Realty - 408.972.1822) about 4 years ago

Hi Joe Petrowsky Yes, we definitely need to pump the "stuff" out of our economy. It does seem that we have one candidate that is talking about reducing the debt, not raising the ceiling.

Joe Petrowsky   What is a the answer to this tough question ? I know this is not a joke

Raising the ceiling only allows more sewage to flow in...simple principle, but no one is listening!  A

With 18 trillion dollars + the national debt, we are in crisis! This is a horror story in the making. The consequences are grave. These are issues Candidates better be asked and have viable solutions.

Otherwise, the impact will be severe, i.e., education, infrastructure, jobs, business, in other words, everything and everyone will feel the consequences. It would be worse than anything we've ever experienced in our life times before. 

I will stay tuned to your future posts to find out what news you have to share.

Joe- It would take a pump the size of Jupiter to dredge the sludge we have in our HOUSE.  Unfortunately, that's not likely.

Good afternnon Joe! Nice analogy wasted on the politicians! For political purposes, like buying the election, think of one that would raise the ceiling! Enjoy your day!

Best analogy I've read on Washington in a long time my friend...November can not get here soon enough!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) about 4 years ago

Joe lets hope the pumps are primed, because the ceiling can't be raised any more.

Ugh....I wish November showed a light at the end of the tunnel....looking forward to 2020!

Great analogy, Joe. It puts everything into perspective. Hope your Wednesday is wonderful.

Or move to the top of the hill. I'm sick and tired of all this crap!
