Stuck in cesspool

San Luis ObispoJanuary 9, 2013 

I watch a lot of TV news, and in the last few weeks I’ve heard a lot of blather from talking heads and a lot of chin-music from politicians about how to get out of the financial cesspool that our country is in. I haven’t heard anyone mention what should be the first cut: lowering our military budget to what the Pentagon is asking for.

And in two months, we can do it all again, since the Republican Party is comprised of a life form that doesn’t believe in government or governing.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
