Rather than worry about 'lipstick on a pig' I think our time would be better spent on an issue such as this that has tremendous potential for disaster. We are, I believe, all living in a house of cards and we had better get a handle on it and not be distracted by non-issues.

Issues of the Day
As I was driving to the grocery store this morning I listened to the radio. So, in January of 2009 a new President will inherit a 500 billion budget deficit and a 9 trillion national debt. We are borrowing money to prop up our country from anyone we can get it from and we have become THE debtor nation of the world. I think very few citizens pay any attention to this, understand how it is devaluing the dollar and impacting our security. As we look to the outside forces in our concern for safety and security we are living on a ticking time bomb of ever-growing debt.
