Amongst the headlines of events happening around the world this past week:

*The United States' budget woes continue as the August 2nd deadline looms. The Democratic controlled Senate has rejected the Republican sponsored budget bill of severe cuts without raising the debt ceiling, while the Republican controlled House of Representatives' rejected the Democrat's budget bill that included raising the debt ceiling but without enough budget cuts from the Republican point of view, leaving Americans wondering why the two sides can't get anything done. Meanwhile, if Congress does not unite to pass a budget by the deadline, rumor has it that President Barack Obama will enact the power of the 14th Amendment to the United States' Constitution and raise the debt ceiling himself.
Your Free Choice E-zine will continue to monitor and report on the story, but stands by its previous editorial on the subject, posted earlier this week.
