What’s a deficit?

What’s a deficit?

What’s a deficit? How do they happen? Who causes them? How do you avoid them? How to you dig yourself out from a deficit? These are questions most Americans don’t know the answer to. From what is see and hear in the news apparently our elected officials don’t know the answers to them either.
Is a deficit something that happens when the sun the moon and the stars drift out of alignment? Does a deficit occur when the elected dummies who pass legislation sort of by accident, and in the process mismanage our public piggy bank .
What’s a deficit? How do they happen? Who causes them? When a legislature passes legislation that authorizes spending above the revenues. That’s how you get a deficit. Private citizens can’t create one. Good or bad economies can’t impact the situation, unless you try to blame the economy for lower than expected revenues from taxes. The problem with that is it doesn’t pass a smell test. My smell test is when you pass a small pile of doo doo in front of me if it smells like doo doo, it is doo doo. When the revenues are sufficient for the spending that needs to be spent, then the revenue shortfall due to a sluggish economy is as irrelevant as the reasons for new taxes given by the elected empty suits.
How do you avoid a deficit? Don’t spend like a drunken sailor. Another method to avoid a deficit is for the executive who has to sign off on all legislation to veto any spending that fails to pass the executive’s personal smell test. Doo doo is as doo doo does.
How to you dig yourself out from a deficit? This is the most important question of this entire literary masterpiece. It’s the question that prevents elected officials from becoming successful at the skill of running a government. There are fence posts and a couple of fire hydrants that are smarter than I am, but I can see the answer to that question, but the process that makes an ordinary citizen an elected empty suit blocks them for seeing the answer. Don’t spend more than you have. That’s the answer. You don’t need to hold hearings or talk to a bunch of smart people to find a solution to the mystery. Don’t spend more than you have. If you want to use some enhanced methods to avoid a deficit, not only don’t spend what you don’t have, when you do spend, pay attention to what you do spend and make real sure that it needs to be spent.
I want to make this clear for everybody even the average elected empty suit. A family of four with the father as the primary bread winner and the mother as a secondary bread winner sits down to dinner and a discussion about finances.
“Well family we took in a grand total of $1000 last week, $400 went to rent, $200 went to food, $200 went to other household expenses, $400 went to Suzy McBoobs at the Shimmy Shack down the road, $400 went to rent a car for Tommy Beer Can, and another $400 will go to a trip to Las Vegas for me and the aforementioned Suzy McBoobs to evaluate how families spend their vacations in Las Vegas.” Said the father.
“Dear I have a few questions about our expenses.” The mother said.
“Ok you may ask” Said the father with a nervous tone in his voice.
“First you have twice as much going out as coming in. Then you have a couple of questionable expenditures that may not be necessary, for example why are we spending $400 on Suzy McBoobs at the Shimmy Shack and $400 on Tommy Beer Can, and the trip to Las Vegas doesn’t sound like a good idea at this time.” She calmly responded.
“Well dear as a family we have some serious and long term obligations to MS. McBoobs and we must stay current with those obligations. Mr. Beer Can provides a long standing service to me personally and our family as a whole relating to the smooth operation of our family. He’s in possession of information, photos and some video of incidents that should not be made public at this time. As my wife I am especially interested in that information not coming to your attention. The trip to Las Vegas with Ms. McBoobs is in the best interest of the long term health and well being of me personally and must occur as scheduled.” Answered the father with a straight face.
“Well husband, I disagree and I feel that some of these expenditures are not in the best interest of me, our children or our marriage. The children and I all agree not to spend the money to Suzy, Tommy or the Las Vegas Trip.” Said the mother.
“Thank you for your input, I’m always happy to hear from you. Please work hard and be careful, I leave for Las Vega in an hour with Ms. Mc Boobs. And dear please make yourself available for Tommy, he has a few things he wants to discuss with you later tonight, you may want to take a strong sedative before he arrives, it’ll probably be better for you that way.”
With that the sleazy bastard walked out of the room.
Instead of holding deficit hearings you should make them all read this. It answers the questions and provides a clear simple solution to the problem.

    I’ll talk with the other half about paying up. It’s like squeezing OJ from an apple. You know, to do my part. Between the spouse and Sam, flip a coin. If either want to bust my chops, so be it, again, no OJ there! Let them fight over it! Hey Dre, Is your real name Damien, you know, the Anti-Christ? You are very scary! Lose the buzzers butthead and I’ll ignore the composites. seems fair!

      Andie, I think you missed the point. The point of this was to explain that our local, state, and federal governments spend way too much money for good and bad reasons. The elected dummies spend moeny that we don’t have, that creats a deficit and then they insist on raising our taxes to make up the shortage. Stop spending money that we don’t have and then you won’t have to try to get more OJ from an Apple.
