Time to Stop the Debt Charade

Hey, it's only money, pieces of paper tossed back and forth, who the hell cares? Certainly NO ONE in Washington D.C. I've been sending them a chuck of my paycheck for the last 54 years, and some how got them into a 16 trillion dollar debt......... I blame us, the average citizen that keep sending them a slice of our pie, while they keep demanding a bigger piece each year. I blame us for NOT firing the jerk who allowed money to go to turtle tunnels, and treadmills for shrimp. Same for green energy. 535 million to a billion gone and we put the SAME people back in power & didn't fire one of them. SO, who gave them the OK to waste our dollars? We have not only allowed such waste, fraud, and abuse of our money, but cheered the b___ards on.

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...
