Permanence and penetrability.
Trump is in huge trouble following events of this past week. He and his Republicans already had plenty of political enemies to where they need every vote. They lost millions of votes with their spendthrift budget deal and wall funding failure. The swamp won and Trump helped. We will not forget. We will not vote for Democrats, obviously. We are not nuts. We will instead simply remain at home on voting day. Why bother to vote for Republicans when they are virtually as bad as Democrats?
Trump is running up the national debt faster even than Obama did!! There is no such thing as a free lunch. Young people, our kids and grandkids, are being saddled with an impossible situation. The fact they are too young and inexperienced to realize that yet is no excuse to destroy the lives of upcoming generations. Things are bad already. If interest rates normalize the debt service alone will become enough to screw the pooch for generations to come.
Today’s young people deserve the same opportunities I had when I was young. But adults back then nurtured and looked out for their young, and did not cast them into a hole of inescapable debt. Today’s adults are leeches, stealing from the young so they can live lives of excess to which they inexplicably feel entitled . . . but most assuredly are not. “Pay as you go” never even occurs to them.
