Our Country's Financial Hole

Strange how everyone talks about how dangerously high the budget deficits have gotten in the United States; you hear it on the news, you see it on the internet, and you even hear it straight from the horses mouth, that "we are out of money." Yet, everyday we continue to read about more bills enacted by congress and more bureaucratic nonsensical positions created by the president that obviously keep digging us deeper into debt.

Just recently, congress voted for the "cash for clunkers" bill that will be enacted any day now; this bill will take my hard earned tax dollars and give them to anyone that will trade in an automobile for a new one that increases their gas mileage by at least two additional miles per gallon. Can you believe this? They (not straw men "they," but real moronic elected officials) are giving my money away to someone else to buy a new auto? I can't afford a new auto, but my money will be redistributed to someone else that can afford one so that they can buy a new one. If they can afford a new car, they don't need my "cash for clunkers" tax dollars!!! Does this anger me? YOU BET!

And, this is just the beginning. In the next few days, weeks, months, and years, more unnecessary spending will be enacted by those "not so brilliant" government employees we call congressmen/women and presidential representatives. This hole is being dug so deep that it will eventually collapse within itself, and we will be left with nothing for generations except the hole filled with debt.
