Thanks Star for an Econ 101 lesson. Won't hear this on the main stream media or from the politicians, at least not most of them. At this point, the education system has failed so bad, even if everyone in the country read this article, the vast majority would not get it. Bankruptcy, here we come.

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...
