…If I Couldn’t Figure Out How To Balance A Checkbook!
How hard can it be? Does it hurt? Of course it does!
I like strawberries and whipped cream as much as the next person, and I sure as heck like them a lot better than beans and cornbread; however, I’ve had to eat a few beans in my life, haven’t you?
Then tell me what it is about this concept that Congress doesn’t understand. On one hand, Rickey and I believe that the problem stems from the fact that most of our politicians have never lived in the real world, but that’s not always the case…it’s not even the case with the President himself.
Surely the son of a single mom should understand BUDGET? And don’t tell me that he is just too good for his own good and only wants to help people.
I’ve spent some time researching where the money goes, and it’s not all flying off to feed starving babies, folks!
We Americans spent the last generation playing (I’m pointing at myself also.) and while we were not looking, Congress set itself up to answer to no one and to do exactly what it took to create a roomful of career politicians.
And so here we are today; the money is gone from the richest country in the world, and we have a few hundred people making our decisions for us, and to be quite honest with you, they are not qualified to do that. I think they have made that very plain.
Because we are the richest nation in the world, we could still turn this runaway train around before it derails; however, it appears that the people in charge had rather ride the train right on off of the track and over the cliff than to stop it now. The only thing wrong with that scenario is that you and I can’t get off of the train. Whither it goest, so goeth we…it’s a shame, isn’t it?
