Massive debt cannot be justified
Melissa Baird says it best: “Needs vs. wants, Let’s be responsible adults.” Tell me how you can justify spending money you do not have? Borrow, borrow, borrow and go broke, broke, broke. If you can’t see what’s happening to our country because we borrow from the likes of China, et al., and have incurred horrific debt to the tune of $18 trillion, then you likely have mounting debt of your own and are also on the verge of losing all you have too. Responsible individuals will get by with what they have and save for the things they want. You MUST expect the unexpected before jumping into the new pool, as it were. What if our economy plunged us into another devastating depression? People will lose their jobs, their homes, their transportation and their lives. The market is poised for a crash and irresponsible city council members put their collective heads in the sand and pretend they don’t see. Don’t you love your children? Do you really want them to carry the burden of your fiscal ineptitude? Lastly, they are calling this monster the “Life Center”? Good grief, there is no life under a mountain of debt. The unfortunate reality is that this will pass and put us into a tailspin, out of control, and many will perish in the fall, crash and burn; and those of you that mock will likely be the first to succumb to the disaster. Pity that the innocent will pay the heavier price and your admission to the annual pool party, ad infinitum.
