I'm just hoping this DOES end folks...
Consider something. Earlier this year, we were made to believe sequestration was the end of America as a functional nation if we didn't step, fetch
and bark on command to prevent it. Once it passed, both sides got cuts into sacred cows NEITHER side could ever poltically dream of achieving any
OTHER way. No one even talks much about it now, although at some level, that is what this budget debate is about.
Still.. the DIRE urgency to prevent the damage (and it has..and IS doing major damage) came and went with the political deadlines that mattered to
office holders. Once it became reality, it's remained reality with no talk, let alone effort to remove what was 'dire to our survival to prevent'.
Now what has this done? Well.. Unemployment isn't coming out and that's just one of dozens of key indicators, milestone measurements to programs and
critical reports NOT being produced with a perfect excuse. These have been bad news items for a long time. The politicians are happy. People
protesting, as we've seen, can be shut down on the spot and even arrested in places this is NOT normal or even really been accepted before.
Politicians are happy.
I wonder...who is actually UNHappy here? I know we, as citizens are....we're getting screwed. However, if we take on Faith that they don't care
anymore ...what downside ARE they enduring here, personally, to even want this to end?
I hope this isn't the "New Normal". It would be the last turn onto the path to the bottom.
