  • Who can we blame?

    It is reported that our country, the United States of America, is deep in debt.  It seems our elected governmental officials including the President have had to borrow money to pay for the things our leaders believe are necessary.  I mean, actually borrow money above all the taxes that are collected from those of us who pay them.

    You know that old expression: “You never miss the water until the well runs dry.”
