Another day passes and we’re no closer to some sort of settlement in Washington….
Now to that fantasy. With the increasing ridiculousness of the political theater, more than ever, I’d like to stand before a joint session of Congress, with the President and Cabinet in attendance, mind you…and say “WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH YOU PEOPLE?!” “YOU ARE HERE ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!…NOT FOR YOUR OWN SELFISH ADVANTAGE!” “WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THOSE NEW ARRIVALS FROM THE LAST ELECTION, THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE REMAINDER SHOULD BE FIRED FOR DERELICTION OF DUTY OR SIMPLY A VERY, VERY POOR JOB PERFORMANCE!”
If you want a simple explanation to the debt crisis, ask yourself this question: “could I handle my personal finances the way the United States government handles its finances?” The sensible answer is, OF COURSE NOT! At least, not legally!
The President and the Democrats want more money. The Republicans say this has to stop…or in the very least, slow down. The Democrats are screaming bloody murder and using every tactic…and we’ve seen them all..to paint the Republicans as heartless, uncaring, extremists,…and the latest…dictators. That from that fool of a DNC head, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I could use a stronger term to describe that woman, but I’m too much of a gentleman to use it here! The plan put forth by Harry Reid calls for “cuts” over 10 years! Unfortunately, no subsequent Congress is required to abide by those stipulations! So, it’s not likely we’d ever see ANY OF THEM! Plus it also counts on the draw down of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dubious, at best. Of course, the way Congress handles budgeting, there are NEVER any real cuts!
If the spending is left unchecked….and the Administration and their Congressional allies are allowed to continue their ways, we’re DONE. Our days as the nation you grew up in are numbered…if they aren’t already.
Sad, but true.
