    I'm still optimistic that the tide can be turned. Where do you stand?

    Re: What does it mean?

    I am not optimistic. We don't have lawmakers or an administration who can stand to make the cuts necessary, so I expect that a few small symbolic cuts will be made, but not actual long-term solutions, and we will continue to accrue debt at a growing pace.

    Alot of people don't care about our national debt. They just care about thier pockets.

    I learned a long time ago that it's silly to concern one's self with things one can't control. I did my civic duty in November, voting for someone I thought could more effectively turn us around.

    My guy lost. So. *shrug*. It won't change by style or standard of living. Those closest to me are in good shape. Not much more I could ask for, really. If we go off some imaginary fiscal cliff as we've been led to believe? Most all of us will be in the same boat. (Though I admit I have a spare set of oars in mine...) It's up to Washington. They created the problem. Let 'em fix it.

    Your nonchalance is a reminder to me of how indifferent I've become toward my surroundings. Don't you think it's also one's civic duty to be prepared for emergencies?

    Well, I think it's one's civic duty to take care of one's own. And, as I said, I have an spare set of oars in "my boat."

    I don't know what it means, but it kind of disturbing how our entire household income is added onto that debt in 6 seconds.

    it means we need to go back and re-examine our political policies that were in effect the last time that clock quit spinning
    the time immediately prior to the date dicknbush's spendthrift regime took over and turned a very modest annual surplus into massive deficit
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Don't forget Hussein's role in this massive deficit.
