Another oldie but goodie for you folks. This one is from last summer. Funny how things circle around again. This was written when the “fiscal cliff” was imminent and we put it off again. And here we go again!
Well at the last minute possible we averted financial disaster. Whew! That was a close call. Kept our triple A rating tho, and that’s the bottom line, right? No? You mean there’s more to it than that? Far reaching repercussions of a lame duck congress? Well, at least Obama was able to make it to Chicago to celebrate his birthday on time. Oh, and a fund raiser. A very expensive fun raiser. And I’m sure the congress members scattered like leaves in the wind as soon as the vote was over. After all, they have worked HARD this summer! So they left a few issues on the table that will end up costing the government millions/billions. Whatever. They will get to it all in due time. I mean, come on, they were forced to work over a holiday this year! What sacrifices they make for us. Us people with no jobs, no insurance, no government pension, no light at the end of OUR tunnels! Where’s OUR bailout? How high does OUR debt ceiling go before we self implode?
Maybe our government should be more concerned with taking care of the AMERICAN people before they care of every other stinking person on this planet. Maybe our fingers are in too many pies, or trying to hold too many dikes back. We are always the first ones to come to the rescue, and stick our noses in other countries business. When will WE come first? There are sick and starving and homeless people in THIS fine country of ours. There are home grown terrorists here. There are natural catastrophes here. There is civil unrest here. When will we solve our OWN problems, and quit trying to solve the problems of the world first?
It’s just too easy to point the finger and blame somebody else. It’s the President’s fault. It’s the Republican’s fault. It’s the Tea Party’s fault. It’s the Union’s fault. It’s never MY fault, or OUR fault.
Maybe we all need to get back to a simpler life, where we are responsible for our own actions, our own debt, our own country. Live and let live. Help out when you can. Share what you can. Make the world a better place, by starting at home.
