I Apologize in Advance
You may have been having a good day, and if so, I'm sorry. But sometimes it helps to take a good hard look at the truth. Sunday, April 25, 2009 is "Debt Day." (hat tip Powerline)The government has now spent all of the tax revenue they expect to collect for the entire fiscal year, which ends September 30th. That means that every dime (of the hundreds of billions of dollars President Obama and Congress are spending) spent for the next FIVE months will be borrowed from our good friends in China and Saudi Arabia, and will have to be paid back not only by us but also by our children and grandchildren...and great-grandchildren...if America lasts that long.
George Bush made many mistakes as President. He was a disappointment to me on many occasions. Compared to this, he looks like Reagan. Jimmy Carter was (until now) by far the worst President of my lifetime. His sniveling prissy clueless tenure in office nearly destroyed our nation. Frankly, compared to this, even Carter looks like Reagan. We are in real trouble...and we're not even 100 days in yet...
But as Lincoln said, if God wills to destroy everything we have collected and created in our history, we can only say "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."
