Our lawmakers, for what they are worth, have come to some sort of agreement on the budget. It is far from acceptable.

The republicans gave George W. Bush a blank check to wage war and give tax rebates. Now all they can do is complain about Obama inheriting the right.

Now our future is in the hands of those that want to just belittle each other, like children. Our future is currently in the hands of China.

Reversing bad decisions will be hard – on all of us. It is going to be up to all of us to make sacrifices. Our politicians need to make things right, or we need to replace them with those that can. All politicians, whatever party, must start standing for what is right, rather than just getting voted to office so they can have a guaranteed paycheck (which is wrong, as well).
