After weeks of posing and doing head shots in front of TV cameras the leadership of congress and the president have announced a cut not equal to a flea’s fart in a windstorm, it’s a grain of sand in the Gobi. Let’s see, 38 billion, out of a 3.5 trillion dollar budget? That’s just over 1%, if my math’s correct. They made a miraculous cut of 3.8% of this years DEFICIT. That’s not a cut in spending AT ALL. It’s a tiny dent in OVER SPENDING. Then they have the utter audacity to crow about it as if they’ve done you and I a favor. If you have a $600 a month food budget, that’s a $6.00 a month cut in your spending. Okay, America, try and do without one big mac a month. In this country we spend 48 billion a year on our pets. I’m continually astounded about the inability of those we put in office to do something substantial in order to earn their money, to do something to save your children and mine, your grandchildren and mine, from carrying the load of our misdeeds over the last few years. I swear, if your grandchildren don’t relish to opportunity to kick your cane out from under you while shouting “What were you thinking?” I’ll be very surprised. I’m sure they’ll gladly send all of us to some urine smelling old folks home (if there are any left when the country goes bankrupt) when we dotter over to tell them we can’t afford a box of oatmeal with what we’re getting from social security. When they say “tough titty, you should have made your congressman do something to solve the problem,” what are you going to reply? What can you reply? For all of us are fiddling while D.C. burns. The government accounting office says at this rate we’ll be 99.4 trilion in additional debt over the next 25 years. The surface area of the earth is 510 million square kilometers and you could easily carpet it with hundred dollar bills with what our congress is doing to us. It’s time to TTBO, throw the bums out, each and every one of them.
