The New Win/Win Idea . . .

with the same old results. Every time the politicians win on both sides of the aisle, or even come to some sort of agreement, it seems "we the people" lose. It appears we are about to do that again with this debt ceiling business. I'm going to share my idea of just what we are facing and we'll see how it all plays out, but I'm thinking our dollars are about to be like tissues, abundant and of little value. I also think life as we know it is about to change drastically, except of course for the entitled and the elite. First, all this "economic recovery" talk was really only trying to get us all to get comfortable in government managed debt and allowances, like extended unemployment benefits and EBT cards for over 40 million Americans. That's not independence and that's not economic recovery, that's government handouts to people that truly were working and contributing to the economy and would again, if it truly was improving and recovering, but, only the bankers and Wall Street enjoyed a brief increase after their bail out. It didn't get better for the rest of us and now we're just looking at even more debt to keep the situation running until the politicians are re-elected. They are literally voting on more budget than usual to get past the election of 2012. I can see a real problem with transparency there. It is transparent that our elected officials do not appear to be concerned about the folks they promised to represent. If the republicans get themselves off the hook with handing it to the president to use the 14th amendment, then our government proves it still doesn't work. If the President makes the decision by Executive Order, then he's proven who and what he is. Either way you stack it, this debt mess is causing all of the ordinary people to lose, and to pass that loss on to the next several generations. It really is time for some fiscal responsibility and by definition, responsibility doesn't "take mine first" and pass the problem on to someone else. I can't justify leaving this debt to my grandchildren, but then again, I can't stand the thought of listening to all the old and disabled entitled people gripe about not getting "what's their's." We've made a mess and even raising the debt ceiling is not going to fix it. Until we manage to actually generate some revenue and as a country live within our means, government entitled and elite, included, this will not be resolved.
There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men. a Proverb of Holy Scripture
