All this talk of raising the debt ceiling & cutting the budget or not cutting the budget has been angering me to no end. There is nothing that can be cut? Come on, nothing? I’ve wanted to vent about it for a while now but wasn’t sure where to begin. So, being the geek that I am, I decided to go back and look over my Constitution. You know, the document that lays out how the government should run & what it can & can’t do. Now I know the government has gotten way too large & intrusive but even I was stunned when I found a site that lists all of its departments. Small wonder it takes 3.5 trillion dollars to run this behemoth. If you are of strong mind & body, click on the link below.

In my estimation, we could axe 50% (conservatively) of these departments by privatizing or simply doing away with them. As I perused the list it just fortified my belief that most of what the Federal government does is unconstitutional. As a practical note, who could possibly argue that the government could do a better job at anything than the private sector! Well, I don’t feel any better but that will have to do for now.
