The current news has me perplexed. Seriously, how does a government shut down, especially one as supposedly sophisticated as ours?
Our local news had the countdown, in hours, displayed on the TV screen just when this shut down will take place if our politicians don’t reach an agreement about the budget.
That being said, what can we do about it now, besides worry about the consequences if a shut-down does take place?
The American people don’t need this added stress, especially now with all the other problems we are facing. It makes me wonder what’s more important to Capitol Hill; the welfare of its people or agreeing on how much to spend next year.
Let’s face it; other countries are probably looking at us and shaking their heads in disbelief. How could a country such as the United States let itself fall to greed and childish behavior?
I have a solution; let’s fire all the politicians and start over with a better plan on how the United States should be run. Obviously, the one we have isn’t working all that well.
