To this point related to politics I have been somewhat successful in keeping the stress level below mind blowing. No need to re-counter the obvious amateur hour that Washington D.C. has presented to the world in this past and current year.  Perhaps the accumulation of the out of control is best demonstrated by the following video:

The saddest part of what will be a normal reaction to the content begs the question: "Where is the similar outrage by our Alaska contingent??"  Nothing, zip, Nata, proving once again that Alaska Congressional representatives "Go along to Get along".

So disgusted and outraged at how the government is being run and the debt that is being created by those that have no fiscal conception on the damage to the lives and standard of living of our Great Grand children . Let me repeat an old Middle East proverb, a simple lesson in fiscal economic:

"My grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, I drive a Mercedes, my son drives a Land Rover, his son will drive a Land Rover, but his son will ride a camel."

Thank God I am at the age I am.
