I Swore I'd Never Write Anything Political, But the Current Debt Craziness Must Be Addressed

Please call your Senator(s) and Congressmen(women) to ask that they set aside their petty political differences, to do what is right for America.  They must raise the debt ceiling now, to avoid financial default.

This is not about Democratic or Republican blame games. It's about unilaterally DOING THE RIGHT THING! NOW!

Ask them to support the President's proposal, which will keep our Nation from debt default and financial collapse.


I wonder why it is so difficult for some politicians to grasp the concept of asking large corporations and wealthy Americans to pay their fair share?  Why shouldn't they be taxed appropriately, when compared to middle-class Americans.

It's not difficult to figure out - all you need is to be smarter than a fifth grader. 

Politicians are owned by big business, and controlled by lobbyists.

You gotta laugh to keep from crying!  So, enjoy what Warren Buffett (probably the most honest and intelligent wealthy American you'll ever meet) has to say about it . . .

Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offered one of the best quotes I've heard in all this drama about the debt ceiling:

"I could end the deficit in five minutes," he told Becky Quick.  "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP (Gross Domestic Product), all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election."

What a concept!  But, it will never happen!  The same incompetents who have screwed things up, would be the ones required to pass the law.

Oh well, a bit of humor to stall the tears, right.
