    Fiscal irresponsibility certainly didn't begin with this administration, but it has certainly reached new heights ... or depths! The country is indebted to anyone and everyone who has ever been willing to lend to us; we're playing with Monopoly money; the wastrals in Washington have taxed everything that can be taxed, yet are still grasping at anything they can get their hands on! It doesn't make sense to think that these bozos have the means, brains, or the inclination to fix what is now unfixable - except by the most drastic measures! And they show no signs of having the least inclination to admit their dismal mistakes or to make an attempt at responsibility. So they'll throw a few more billions of fiat money to the "minimum wage" hirelings in an attempt to look like good guys. The printing presses will hum; some people will think that their lot in life will improve; inflation (the cruelest tax of all) will skyrocket. Everybody loses! Enter Agenda 21. May God help us all!
