I observe the news, when I can. One thing I've noticed is the constant attack of the infrastructure repairs Trump wants Congress to finance. The outcry of the expense, and how to pay for it, always ends with only two options: raise taxes, or more deficit spending. The best option, which is cutting federal spending, seem to be ignored by many, which I understand. When so many depend on suckling from the federal teat, too many think it's a normal way of life, and are entitled to their spot.
I'll watch how this all turns out. My hope is huge cuts in wasteful spending, including reciprocation to donors, parallel agency functions, overstaffed agencies, and useless positions to satisfy bureaucracy. These are only a few cuts, and anyone with private sector management skills could find many.
While private citizens are forced to adapt to economic changes, the federal government either inflates the currency, or borrows against the future, without considering how it affects future generations. It's time for this to end, and the Washington D.C business complex to face the same harsh realities those in the private sector face daily.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
