Ev'ry road thro' life is a long, long road,
Fill'd with joys and sorrows too,
As you journey on, how your heart will yearn,
For the things most dear to you.
With wealth and love 'tis so,
But onward we must go.
Keep right on to the end of the road, keep right on to the end,
If the way be long, let your heart be strong, keep right on round the bend.
If you're tired and weary, still journey on, till you come to your happy abode,
Where all you love you've been dreaming of will be there at the end of the road.
With a big stout heart to a long steep hill,
We may get there with a smile,
With a good kind thought and an end in view,
We may cut short many a mile.
So let courage ev'ry day,
Be your guiding star alway.
Way back last year when Congress was debating increasing the debt ceiling, they finally agreed to do so, but without increasing taxes nor cutting services, at the price of instituting drastic changes to take effect on January 1, 2013 which would do two things:
1. The Bush tax cuts would be allowed to expire, raising every American's taxes, and
2. Crippling spending cuts would go into effect hampering almost everything government does including military and social spending.
With this "Armageddon" type threat hanging over the nation, a bi-partisan Congressional panel was formed to come up with a solution. It failed to do anything, so right now, the United States of America is heading for a suicidal economic disaster in about five months. If that happens, we will become a third world country.
What will happen? I predict that Congress will approve a last-minute, short-term extension of our present tax system and spending patterns, either before the Presidential election, or shortly thereafter, and leave the tough decision-making to the newly elected Congress and Administration to tackle in early 2013.
