    I don't want the trillion dollar coin.

    I think everyone serious agrees that a debt default would do harm to America and innocent Americans.

    So, a threat to do harm to innocent Americans unless your demands are met is ... terrorism.

    If they try it, I think I'd prefer that Obama hit the House GOP with the full force of the Patriot Act ... which, of course, would make their donors funders of terrorism and likewise subject to legal penalties.

    The above is snark ... but there is a part of me that would like to see the Patriot Act used to shut the nihilist wing of the GOP and their funders down for a generation.

    Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?
