Politicians can talk until they are blue in the face. They can institute new programs. They can pay people to dig holes and then fill them up again. They can pay people to buy cars. They can pay people to buy houses. They can pay people to buy appliances. They can print more money. They can raise taxes. They can borrow from the Chinese. They can build fences to keep the Mexicans out. They can build 15 new aircraft carriers. They can bomb Iran. They can lower taxes. They can do an Irish jig. And lastly, they can kiss my fat ass, because the only thing that will save this country is if they reverse the numbers in the two clocks below. Our path is unsustainable. We can chose to change the path ourselves, or it will be forced upon us. The fuse is lit and the clock is ticking.
