…nothing is really being done.
I want to take the opportunity of “the Sequester” to remind all of us that nothing positive is being accomplished until the Debt Clock begins, and continues to, run backwards.
If the Sequester occurs, it is a time for celebration as it would mark the first nod to fiscal sanity. But it is just a nod… a recognition that we are in deep trouble. The Sequester would need to be multiplied forty times in order to genuinely begin to address our countries problems.
So raise a beer… but after you finish it immediately get back to work.
Remember, the politicians have an uncanny ability to take a very tiny step forward and take two great leaps backwards.
Don’t start trusting them now… they’re going to try to keep playing us for fools.
(Don’t forget, It’s the Debt Dummy! “Debt” and “Deficit” are two very different words. Politicians on both sides of the aisle will try to use them interchangeably in order to keep you confused. In turn this keeps you voting the way they want. Your only concern should be reducing the Debt. Reducing the Debt is the only thing that matters, because by doing so the Deficit is necessarily taken care of… it will be gone. Simply reducing the Deficit only allows for our continued drive forward into the Fiscal Oblivion. Focusing on the Deficit is meaningless at this point in our history.)
Sequester is just one piece of a 1000 piece puzzle.
