Roses and Bill Whittle

There was yet another storm which came in yesterday..high winds and rain last night....and its rather cold here this morning, 38 degrees....fortunately, it didn't get down to freezing as our garden is just about all planted....the Don Juan roses like all the rain and have rewarded us....they smell heavenly also..the other rose bushes are awake now and growing..a few buds so it won't be long.....Don Juan's are always the first and are very abundant, both with flowers and rose hips...most of the year.
Something a little more serious...as you probably all know..there is a massive fight in Congress right now over the budget....with alot of people (Democrats) predicting doom and gloom...people dying in the streets, starvation...etc. if there are cuts.....its the same thing they did back during the Clinton years..the government was shut down for 3 weeks and wow, the sky didn't fall....amazing..

Both sides of the aisle have been at fault...no one is innocent in this mess, except maybe the new tea party members of Congress who are trying to do the right thing..living within our means which  we are all trying to do...Paul Ryan's budget seems very good from what I've read...nothing is done away with for the most part, just less increases..you must realize that Democrats look at this, they consider less increases as cuts....its like
we need a new TV and have X dollars to buy it with....shall we buy a cheaper set with the money we have or shall we use our credit card, get an expensive set..and owe zillion bucks? The Democrats opt for the credit card which is why we are in this problem now....borrowing more and more..and more...and more...
 For the first time in history, our country owes more than it brings in....scary times....
 The Left seems to think that its the rich that are the problem....that there is plenty of money....
 Bill Whittle has done a wonderful video which explains the problem in a way everyone can understand.....
