If you haven't figured out government shutdown, maybe you put your brain on backward when you got up. Tax money you pay Washington D.C. suffers from the same disease as your billfold. It don't buy so much, no how no more.
We got banana republic disease that thinks printing money makes you rich. It don't. It's what you produce with blood sweat and tears that makes you rich, roofs over your head, blankets your bed, and feeds your face.
That's what rich is. You can get fancy-pants extra like decent roads, conservation of resources, educate the new still wet behind the ears to know how come and what's what; but you better bring your brains to breakfast.
It's so simple you'd think even presidents whelped in Texas would know 20 year war in Iraq - Afgan countryside would flatten the national billfold, get into the kiddies bank and mama's sugar bowl.
Remedy is simple too. It's a 100% personal and corporate income tax on over a million buck income for an equal 20 years.
Best turn down the baby machine so those who get born don't starve.
Meanwhile I trust next election evangelical folks will stop using tea in communion. I've got goose bubble of faith already.
