It is unconscionable that we are again facing a debt crisis!
Why do I too often feel that too many of our elected officials try to light a fire by folding sandpaper into a paper airplane and throwing it across the room at a kitchen match even when they should be trying to put fires out instead of lighting a new one. Failing that endeavor They seem to spend their time hunting for another already smoldering fire to joyfully dump gasoline on, just to watch it explode and then after it explodes spending nearly all of their time spitting up wind to put it out.
Perhaps its time for Democrats and Republicans to start talking to each other rather than at each other in 10 second sound bites. There is middle ground available on almost all issues including the national debt, instead of shouting too often obscenely meaningless trivia at each other from the media mountain tops, why don’t they get together in some nice quiet valley out of the media’s sight and like the TV show , ” Make a Deal.” If they are unable to do this then it is time to, as Quigley says to , ” Throw the rascals out.” All of them, I don’t care how much you love, like or respect your U.S. senator or representative if they can’t solve this problem then they either are not intelligent enough or trustworthy enough to be in office. Eldridge Cleaver ( whom I normally do not agree with) said, ” If you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.” This idea applies to everyone even those who believe that they are elected nobility.
