‘As if dollars could buy peace’

Two and two will always equal four. Unless printing presses manned by Congress are used as calculators to figure out how to manage the outrageous national debt, increasing by the second. The latest plot is to scrape up a ludicrous $100 billion to support foreign wars, as if dollars could buy peace.

Meanwhile, we the public are constantly held hostage to threats of government shutdowns, which jeopardize our ability to finance even the essentials that have been responsibly managed in the past by our knowledge of basic addition and subtraction. Lest we end up in debtors prison with nowhere to corruptly – and surreptitiously – dip our fingers to live the high life at taxpayer expense.

It’s time for a major outcry for reform. We should not tolerate a national debt now at a historic high.
