The Fiscal Cliff Chicken Run
We’re approaching the “fiscal cliff” and no one is considering spending cuts. Instead, government is wonder how to increase tax revenues.
What our Federal Government is doing is the equivalent of driving a sports car, that you can’t afford, filled with people, at a ridiculously high rate of speed right at an actual cliff, which going over will most certainly bring about the end of your lives.
Everyone knows the cliff is coming and they are asking the driver to do something about it. Instead of getting off the accelerator and hitting the breaks, the driver is wondering if a bridge can be built or if the ledge of the cliff can be extended.
This is the idiotic mind-set of our government officials. Instead of curtailing the spending that’s hurling us towards our inevitable doom, they are asking how they can prolong the “fun ride” by throwing more money at it.
Thanks but no thanks. I’d like you to stop the car now so that I can get out and never get back in. I’ll walk home from here. You guys can continue on your death-wish but I would no longer like to accompany any of you.
