    Do you remember the first government shut-down? It was big news. The second, not so much. And so it goes.
    All the build up over the fiscal cliff and mandatory cuts. It amounted to nothing. The lights stayed on, the banks stayed open, the gas stations didn't have long lines....we went to the mall.
    Now we face sequestration again on March 1st.
    So what? It doesn't impact my life. Another boy crying wolf.
    These are real and serious problems and the behavior of politicians make the bubble thinner each day.
    But we will not take it seriously until there is a dramatic change in our lives as a result.
    Things are NOT OK. We know that. But until something serious happens that we can see in our own lives, there will be no pressure on Washington. The narcissistic voter is getting his wish; more benefits without more taxes.

    But the Democrats and even some Republicans insist we do not have a spending problem.

    What sort of delusional world do those people live in? Can they even balance their own checkbook?
