This is the real problem in America. The government has been behaving like this guy, but just a short while ago, so were the citizens. How many of you know people who kept borrowing against their house? Borrow the equity, buy a boat. Boat immediately depreciates. Borrow the equity, buy a car. Car immediately depreciates. Borrow the equity, go on vacation. Money pissed away. And all of the Harvard egghead economists can't figure out what's wrong? More money pissed away.
The American Dream is that you grow up free, you work hard, you pay for your house, you retire for a few leisure years, then you die. The kids bury you, and in a few years, join you in the cemetery. Not anymore. Apparently our politicians have bastardized the Dream. Now it is rush, rush, rush. Gotta have it all, and gotta have it all NOW. Chill out, America. Some things you have to work for. You have to set a goal, then work out a plan to achieve that goal, then you have to work on achieving that goal. It ain't rocket science.
