Honestly, I had very little vested interest in the whole fiscal cliff debacle. That was kind of the point of adopting a Living Simple lifestyle, so that I wasn’t blown out of the water every single time my government couldn’t pull their collective head out of their ass. J
I was interested, however, in that this Congress does not seem interested in learning how to compromise, and the President does not seem to be interested in doing anything that would further lower his rapidly declining popularity. Heaven forbid he do anything that actually might upset the power brokers. Heaven forbid that Congress actually act for the average taxpayer instead of the special interest groups.
But like I said, this is all a certain amount of nonsense for me because my life is pretty simple and getting simpler.
Could the economy get so bad that it would affect me and my family? You bet it could, but that is a long ways down the road from where we are now. I don’t think any of us is totally immune from the goings on in the world, but I do believe it is possible to make ourselves less reliant on the political and economic mess we see now.
This afternoon I am going to shut down the computer and go to the library with Bev. We didn’t get much of a chance to spend time together this weekend, so this Wednesday afternoon seems as good a time as any. We will then go get an ice cream cone, and then come home and walk our two miles in the chilly twilight of the day. Then we will sit down to a family dinner, and that will be our day.
Like I said, pretty simple!
