Epiphany is over, gifts are put away.
Even the Wise men have been put in their boxes to rest...
Although I wish we could make them alive and send them to Washington to talk so sense into our Congress, House of Reps, Senators, and President.
"Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does. You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does. You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does. You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
Those human beings in "authority" spend much of their energy convincing us that what they did is not their fault. I am not buying it. Pray for the future of this country, and for the future of our children and grandchildren.
