that this country is still as divided as ever. It is no wonder why we are in the financial mess that we are when people won't even compromise one inch on their ideaologies. If ever in my lifetime there was a time to pitch in and just get the job done it is now.
When Ronald Reagan was President, the "Me Generation" was set on a course to ruin this country. The Forbes magazine list of the 400 richest people became more important than America's 500 largest companies. Binge buying and credit purchases became the mantra of "Shop until you drop" Our national debt more than doubled in just a scant three years.
We have now managed to have our debt soar under President Bush by some 5.7 trillion dollars which by the way was more money than all previous presidents combined.
President Obama has now also increased our debt. He is at least trying to reduce it over the next four years. Mind you, he has only been in office for little over one month.
If you were a part of the "me generation' you are part of the problem. If you lived within your means and saved for a rainy day and ignored the pervailing selfishness of those times then you should be proud of what you once did. Now is the time to be proud again and put an end to the petty nonsense and bickering that is so prevalent and pitch in with whatever you have to help solve this mess or we won't have a divided country much longer. We simply won't be one country any longer.
Abraham Lincoln, ( much in vogue today) once said that "a house divided can not stand" It was true then and is true today.
So quit your whining and do your part to help your fellow man. Sometimes the medicine is worse than the disease.
