Five days until the federal government shuts down. Democrats and Republicans are arm wrestling, have been arm wrestling for quite some time, under the sweat of who will come out looking better for the 2012 election and the grit of who will have the less amount of mud flung at them in 2012.

In this arm wrestling match there is no stronger side that wrestles down the wrist of its opponent. They simply capitulate after putting on a big show. Democrats have the audacity to slash next to no spending worth mentioning and Republicans lack the fortitude and resolve to stand their ground and do what so many voters put them in office to do on November 2, 2010.

Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t the next degree following a crisis a meltdown if that crisis is not resolved? Our economy is in a crisis and neither side is treating it that way. One side ignores it and the other side only ignores it less.

Regardless of how this thing turns out on Saturday, the following Tuesday begins the fiscal 2012 budget battle. I’m sure that will be resolved quickly. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin will be proposing a $4 trillion cut over the next decade. As assertive and rational as that sounds I have nearly already forgotten about it as I type these words because I know it is an impossibility for our Congress to solve such crises in a timely manner.

1,451.4 miles to go.
