Twilight for a Year We Should Have Skipped

Building things is hard. Destroying them, easy.

This year, destructive incompetence in the United States Congress bore spectacular fruit. An economic system that had created more prosperity for more people than we could have imagined just a couple generations ago was brought shaking to its knees by the repeated irresponsible actions of a handful of utopians on Capitol Hill.

Those same members of Congress, having broken what it took generations to build, now wish to take command of its repair.

Our cure, apparently, is to be more of the hair of the dog that bit us.

Well, thanks very much, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Maxine Waters. But I'd prefer to hang on to what prosperity remains, to cling to the hope that we may one day rebuild what was so foolishly broken.

Please go find some other system to 'repair.'

And to the year 2008, good riddance.

The absurdity of politics in this country has reached all new levels...which is saying something.
