I am just a smidgeon mad.
I am a responsible American citizen.
I also happen to owe the government a lot of money. For school loans. And I will have to work very hard for a very long time to pay them back. There is no getting out of it. Except death. Not even with bankruptcy.
And yet this same government has absolutely NO moral imperative to spend wisely, frugally or responsibly, and dig themselves out of the debt they are in.
The hypocrisy, irony and downright inequity is really ticking me off.
