Cutting Ourselves

The nation's financial problems are not over.
The recent Fed decision to not taper its quantitative easing demonstrates to me that this is an economy that has gotten so used to artificial supports, that it can barely function on its own anymore. Oh, it does go through the motions, quarterly reports, shareholders meetings, lots of sounds and furious effort, but I think it is becoming clear that the overall financial edifice cannot function.

The financial reform accomplished little and not enough. Intelligent minds call out for the job to be finished, but the will is gone.

Congress can, however, find the will to shut down government.

What kind of a government is it that can only harm itself? Cut itself? Suicide itself back to nothingness?

We do not deserve this House of Representatives.
