Cliff Avoided

So, we didn't fall off the cliff.

Just like I thought. I swear, these attention grabbing antics of Congress, man. I tell you, they do this everytime.

I must admit that I don't understand much of what is going on about this. So I know I must go do some reading. But, the can was kicked on down the road.

And I must admit that I was just watching it all to see how much money I would lose out of my paycheck. After watching them crunch the numbers, I almost wanted to send a certified letter to the IRS stating "Ya'll bustas just need to go head on and put me on a one year payment plan because ya'll done lost ya'lls cotton pickin' minds if ya'll think that I'm writing a tax check THAT big to you!"


It's the truth. It was at that moment that I thought that now, if I'm thinking that, they REALLY about to have a ton of problems out of people. I can afford to pay my stuff. Some folks can't.

I already got my pay stub for Friday's paycheck. Already smaller. Yep, the 2% SSI increase has kicked in.

Hope the government does something good with it. They took enough out for me to pay a bill with. Humph.

But we avoided the cliff. And that's a good thing.  Or at least I hope it is.

  1. What we need to do now is to cut spending across the board. We need to take a particularly big chunk out of our military budget and bring our troops home.

    One day I'd like to be able to collect Social Security.


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
