The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Growing Deficit

Hooray! The federal budget deficit is due to shrink by about $100 billion (New York Times, pg A1, 7/13/05). But there is still a deficit, and it is still huge. In talking about a budget deficit we get to ask ourselves what kind of scenario we would prefer, unlike many other processes in which we are forced to take what we get. For myself, I prefer smaller deficits and more fiscal responsibility. Apparently our President prefers otherwise.
