Out of the Blue

We had a fine old family outing yesterday, and the pastrami was exceptional, so a good time was had by all. It was a bit of an adventure on the roads, however, as we were confronted by a startling number of drivers who had difficulty staying even remotely in their own lane. My temptation is to blame it on cell phones, but in spite of seeing evidence that it was in some cases, it makes me feel like an old fogey to say that.

Honestly, what it all comes down to, is in the near future (within 10 years) some VERY SERIOUS decisions will have to be made in regards to waste, gluttony, over spending, over paying, auditing, following the money, etc. They cannot continue to tax us at the rate they are and give the services they are giving.

Many programs will be eliminated while our taxes will increase significantly. We cannot sustain under the current spend rate.

I look forward to seeing who will step up and make those hard decisions, as you cannot continue to bail out failing organizations for the benefit of their friends. This happens ACROSS THE BOARD, and is not a party problem. It is an attitude, entitlement, greed problem that must be stopped. The best thing they could do is eliminate lobbying and remove the ridiculous amount of money received by politicians from "interested" parties, companies, etc.

Obama and their ilk (all politicians included) aren't interested in helping the populace. If they were they would quit pandering and just do something. They are CONTROLLED by big biz and the all mighty $ that gives them their home, cars, trips, hookers, blow, etc. They will not sabotage their PERSONAL interests for the American people.

Stuff makes me ill.
