Let's face it: Most Americans are idiots when it come to taxes, and politicians want to keep it that way. And I hate to be on a rant again, but this is the eleventh hour for that ridiculous debt-ceiling debate in Washington, and I'm mad at everybody: The Republicans for appealing to the lowest short-sighted instincts of ignorant humans and the Democrats for being too weak-kneed to know how to expose the Republican leaders for what they are.
... and, as Forrest Gump, would say, "That's all I have to say about that."
The next decades for this country and the world won't be pretty. I'm glad I was born when I was.
