The problem: Our federal government has maxed out its credit cards.

Obama’s solution: Get more credit cards, and don’t negotiate with the Republicans about alternatives.

Republican’s solution: Go ahead and get more credit cards, but only if you reduce how much the government is spending.

Yesterday I went to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie at the Wynnsong Carmike theater in Provo, Utah. When I went to pay for my ticket, I tried to use my American Express card, but was informed that they don’t accept American Express. So I had to borrow some cash from a friend to buy the ticket, no biggie.

So while sitting through and watching the 25 minutes of pre-feature trailers and commercials, I noticed that there was a commercial for American Express. I just think it is pretty for a place that doesn’t accept American Express cards to be showing an American Express commercial.
