Money makes the world go round... Ooops, I think it just stopped!

Learning to live on a budget is not the easiest thing to do.
Nor is it the hardest.

I can think of several things way harder without even thinking...

quitting smoking, making a doctors appointment, renewing your driver's license just to pop off a few.

There are tons of shows on TV and Radio on how to make a budget, how to stick to a budget, how to adjust your way of thinking to fit your budget... and still people act like this concept is a foreign idea.

And I know why.

The government SAYS it has a budget.
Then it SAYS it is spending X dollars a year OVER the budget for A,B and C...
That's how we get the BAZILLION dollar or 13 Trillion dollar or whatever it is today, deficit.

IF you make 4000.00 a month, that is your budget.
IF you spend 5000.00 a month you will create a budget deficit of 1000.00 a month.
Do this for 12 months and you will have an annual budget deficit of 12,000.00!

It's no wonder John Q. Public has no concept of budgeting when the government doesn't actually have one...

so much for do as I say, not as I do...

or for positive role models in American government...

Yeah, what WAS I thinking?
