Deficit

Another question... I have asked many and even researched a little...

At the end of the day; what does having a national deficit really mean?

We are reminded over and over that we have this crippling deficit to pay. Who do we have to pay this debt to, and further more; why?

What does the deficit mean to you and I Joe Blow taxpayer? Also, why am I paying a bill I did not personally incur nor was asked if I minded co-signing?

I know this sounds a little naïve and further right than I normally go but... We still listen everyday to money being allocated for the flavor of the week crisis. Where does this money come from as my bank for some reason does not pay checks I don't have money in the bank to cover...

I guess I should be glad to be able to complain about where does the thousands of dollars my wife and I pay every month in taxes go as I am employed.

I however am not glad that my tax dollars are being used to write a check that I don't need to cash over and over...

From JM "Although the $1.7 trillion dollar budget deficit is the biggest it has ever been in the history of our nation, it still only represents 12% of the gross domestic product. This number is higher than economists would like, but it’s still less than what many other developed nations are borrowing as a percentage of GDP.

Why have you gone back on your words that you see no reason to communicate with me? I thought you signed off on that one!

I thought this was HMJC's blog.

Anyhoo... Although there seems to be an explanation; it still reeks of bovine fecal matter. It also does not clearly delineate why Joe Dirt is left holding the bag. It just doesn't hold water when we constantly endure "emergency" funding for the latest "crisis" when we are "overdrawn"

I know it is a lost cause; just frustrating as I have worked hard all of my life to finance my governments blunders and deadbeats. A kiss would be nice...

If we don't get our manufacturing base back in action in this country this nation will collapse at some point in time.

All real revenue comes from the private sector.

Our elected officials at all levels are overpaid and our government employees are paid more than they are worth.

A cow cannot live off of it's own milk.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/62-agencies-and-programs-trump-wants-to-eliminate/ar-BByb5tr?li=BBnb7Kz Interesting stuff here that can be looked at from both points of view. What I do see is a lot of redundancy and monies for specific regions. It also appears to me that a lot of these programs should be administered at State level and integrated into their own ...

Russian Inquest.
March 02, 2017
The constant chattering about possible Russian Interference in the election has become tiresome at best. It also seems to be apparent that if anyone had any conversations with Russia prior to the election it just had to be about encouraging the Russians help sway the election. I have stated on ...
