One difference between the boat I'm on now and the one I am usually on is, the TV reception is better on this one, which means I see more "news" than usual when I'm working, which means my mood is effected....in a negative way.
I remember as a young boy, watching my Grandpop yell at the TV.
I'm almost to that stage.
This evening, as I watched yet another nauseating news report about the circus that is Washington DC, I wondered what the real answer is to our debt ceiling/too much spending situation?
If I listen to the Republican view point, I can't believe them because they have an agenda.
If I listen to the Democratic view point, I can't believe them because they have an agenda.
Isn't the answer found in Economics 101?
Ok, maybe that's a stretch, but it has to be a math formula. Right?
When I went to a financial planner years ago, he looked at my "books" so to speak, and said, ok, this is what you have to do to reach this particular goal.
Maybe we should call him.
I wonder if we put together the worlds best economic minds, showed them our nations "books", as well as our goals, and asked them to come up with a formula.
They can't be swayed by politics, just by numbers.
I wonder if the answer would bare any resemblance to the answers we've been getting from our childish, stubborn politicians?
