Impending Doom

Wow! To be alive now is crazy! The last Space Shuttle, Space Shuttle Atlantis, took off this morning. It appears it was too costly to keep going. It seems the Russian's approach of an overpriced guided cannon ball, which is a fraction of the price of a reusable space shuttle, is better. Why does the government have to have all these programs? Why do we even have debt?

I was riding in rural Washington County this morning, and I was reminded of how cheap the real estate taxes are in Washington County vs. Douglas County. The reason is simple: there are few, if any, government programs to support.

I think our country is headed for the same fate as Spain and Greece. If we do not get spending under control we are going to be insolvent. Why cant we just have a simpler government? 1.7 million people work for the federal government, not including the military or post office. Is there something wrong with this picture?
