The Federal Debt Comes Calling!

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

We must do something about the looming federal debt crisis.  Or stated differently, we must force our spineless political class to do something about the looming federal debt crisis.  Politicians have been spending like drunken sailors for years and we must reign them in or this country will fail.  Three lawyers I know launched a website a number of years ago called the Powerline Blog and the blog ran a contest this year seeking input form their readers on the topic of the federal debt.  A number of great submissions can be seen on their blog bu this is one of my favorites.  It's short and has a pointed message.



As one of the lawyers I work with commented the other day, the reality of the debt crisis is NOT granny being pushed over the cliff as a recent advocacy ad depicted - with Congressman Paul Ryan staring as the granny dumper - but one where the grandparents slip over to the edge of the "Debt Cliff" and throw a baby - their grand child presummably - off the Debt Cliff and then calmly pick up their golf clubs and stroll back onto the golf course.  Not THAT would be an attention getting ad!  To bad nobody has the stones to take on AARP and their thugish supporters by airing such an ad.

P.S.

The lawyer that suggested such an ad is 50 + and I doubt very much he will ever vote to throw any of his grandchildren off the Debt Cliff.

Just a little food for thought.
