Professional politicians are fully aware of how much attention is really being paid to their shennanigans.

The problem is when we can no longer pay the interest we have nowhere to go.

So why do I persist?

For one, I’m a naturally optimistic person. And fueling that optimism is the press. I’m constantly reading about the possibility of spending cuts, and those articles usually say that the cuts would be major … or massive … or severe...
