THE PROBLEM TOURNAMENT
1.Both Tournament Director (lets call him Mr O) and Chief Arbiter (lets call him Mr B) have been working together for a long time...yes, occasionally there are problem but they could resolve it for the benefits of the chess participants.
2.But now TD and Chief Arbiter have a dispute on last round pairing...and worst, both have a valid argument to support their points.
3.The dispute went on unresolved...and now it has passed the schedule last round...Chief Arbiter then decided not to issue last round pairing...all players are angry and restless now.
4.But both TD and Chief Arbiter just don’t care. Both are in fact not talking to each other! It is what we chess player call it, ‘Stalemate’.
5.Stalemate has been going on for 6 hours...and now the time for prize giving ceremony is about to start. Prize winners are very worried since they have a flight to catch and maybe they will not get back their hard earned money.
6. Tik Tok Tik Tok...will this be a worst tournament ever?
THE PROBLEM GOVERNMENT
1.Both President (Obama) and House Speaker (Boehner) have been working together for a long time...yes, occasionally there are problem but they could resolve it for the benefits of the US Citizen.
2.But now Obama and Boehner have a dispute on Health Care benefit...and worst, both have a valid argument to support their points.
3.The dispute went on unresolved...and now it has passed the deadline and leads to Government standstill...everybody is restless now.
4.But both Obama and Boehner are not talking to each other! It is what press call it ‘Government Shutdown’.
5.Shutdown has been going on for 6 days...and now the deadline for US Government to pay their debtors are looming ahead. Markets are now very worried because should US Government default, the effect will be worse than subprime crisis few years back.
6. Tik Tok Tik Tok...will this be a worst financial crisis ever?
Above drama is still on going as at now at Washington DC...Obama blamed Boehner for being selfish...Boehner blamed Obama for refuse to sit down and discuss...lets see who blink first.
By the way US Government needs to pay their debt obligation by 17 October 2013, if not then US Government can be considered as a bankrupt nation.
Well, lets grab a soda (extra large!)... and popcorn (with caramel!)... and see how this drama unfold in real time!
