Time to Stop the Debt Charade

Unfortunately, we have partisan liberals at one end lost in the utopian dream that you can pay for everything by taxing the wealthy (and when they can't get any more from the rich, they will turn to the rest) or borrow endlessly, and at the other end, the partisan conservatives with their certainty that if gays get to use the word "marriage" and atheists and American-Muslims can also rely on the 1st amendment, then the country will fall. Neither represents the majority of American. We neither want modern versions of Eugene Debs or John Calvin, but, better organized and marketed than everyone else, the two political parties control our government, media and lives.

It's a shame that you make a moral equivalency between the two positions. They are neither alike nor equal and deserve better treatment of their respective arguments.

But that's you, DHE.

The crisis du jour in Washington now dominating the news, the so-called “fiscal cliff”, is but the latest in seemingly endless political crises that we shouldn’t be having.

We get two different kinds of problems in life. The real ones – the struggle to work and improve the quality of our lives – and the ones we bring on ourselves through poor behavior.

The more time we must deal with the latter type, the less time and energy we have to deal with life’s real problems and challenges.

The political crises which emanate from Washington are invariably problems...
