I see this:

No way, on top of everything else, do I see us coming out the other side without serious upheaval and hurt. Just, no way.

What is it I've been criticized for over all these years?

by maxwell edison In reply to And, now

(Not criticized by you, Santee)

Oh yeah, advocating smaller federal government; wanting a fiscally responsible federal government; less accumulation of federal debt; fewer government employees; fewer federal government departments; pay and benefits for government employees that's on par with the private sector; banning government unions; etc.

Geesh! What's next? Signing bonuses paid by the federal government to states that recruit the most people and sign them up for the federal food stamp program?

This sentence, which I elected not to include, thinking it would be too obvious:

"If anything, Max has not been strong enough with his protestations."

Part of the problem...

Both wings have had their very own pet spendings, and neither has been able to trust that the other wing will cut justly, or in prudence, even - so both sides just clamp down their jaws hard and try to block all cuts to own projects.

Y'all need to cull the fringes. If Obama has any nuts at all he'll make a call for responsible lawmakers to get together across the divide, and shut out the irresponsible ones on both sides.
But politicians can't really fix it, they only caused it, after all.

Your everyday citizens have to do exactly the same. Get over the little differences, and concentrate on the big issues, and forget all the "divide and conquer" BS you've been pipe-fed for 50+ years.

..... (if we're not already there), when I can say, I told you so. But over all this time, I was actually hoping that I would end up being wrong.

**** and Hand Basket come to mind. But where is the point of no return? In front of us or behind?
