Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

What if?

A thought came to me the other day... What if Congress does not vote to raise the debt limit and disaster does not follow?

The corollary to that, of course, is: What if Congress does vote to raise the debt ceiling and disasters still follows?

It just seems to me that the case really hasn't been made for raising the debt limit. I think it is time to stop "kicking the can down the road" and getting serious about getting a handle on government spending.

You are welcome to disagree and I would be happy to read a cogent argument for raising the debt limit.

say we compare Congress/Government to an everyday house hold, just for kicks follow me on this, Said household is working and lets say the budget allows for $3000 a month... now how do you raise the "debt limit" to $4000 ? do the math, its pretty simple....
Make More Money... well that's easy for Congress... bet the presses rolling...
