At some point, a line in the sand has to be drawn and the ridiculous spending spree that our government believes in has to stop.

 

This is as good a time as any.

 

No, it's not. There are good times to do this but this is not one of them - if we had done the correct thing with the stimulus and not been hamstrung by the Republicans insane desire to kill the economy in a failed attempt to defeat Obama, this time would probably be a lot closer to happening now.

 

Maybe in a few years if we are lucky. A few more if we are not.

From what I can tell, no one is actually entertaining cuts in spending... only cuts to increases.  The way these guys will work to get out is by fiat currency.  Kiss your savings goodbye.  Say you're sorry to your kids if you have any modicum of conscience.

Washington's version of cutting spending:

 

We are still going to spend more than last year, just not as much as we would like....that's called cutting.

 

 

Working stiff's idea of cutting spending:

 

We are not going to spend as much as last year.
