Washington Insanity

I texted JJ: Obama just promised $50M to AIDS research. Where’s he getting the money?

He responded: Basement printing presses are working overtime, huh?

They’re all freaking crazy. I think there’s something in the Washington water that compels them to spend that which they don’t have. 

It’s a worthy cause.

I snorted. Of course it is! But why this now? How about job creation? How about the crumbling infrastructure? Do they have any perspective?

They don’t live in the real world, Fen.

I’ll say. For some reason, this made my head explode. We’re in debt up to our ears and he’s giving away more money? Can we move to another country now? This one can’t last much longer.

Start packing.

I wish. Sighing, I closed the phone and headed to a late lunch. Some days, the world is a very depressing place.
