ran 3.6 miles
Unbelievable. Just look at Tim Geithner. He looks like an eight-year-old trying to convince his parents otherwise of a blatant truth only adults would understand. Head leaning forward, shoulders raised and clenched in guilt, little and sporadic eye contact, sarcastic grins, so desperate to defend himself that he only achieves making himself look that much less credible. And, through and through, Ryan sits across from him calmly explaining how ineffective and destructive his budget is. I actually felt a tiny bit sorry for him. But, as Paul Ryan pointed out, he is the Treasury Secretary and he deserves every belittling comment Ryan so easily threw at him.

This stuff isn’t hard to grasp. Our national deficit and the budgets our leaders draft each year are leading us further and further to the edge. Even if this edge has ten years of distance before it ends and drops off into an abyss, it is simply irresponsible to appease the short-term interests of our nation while jeopardizing the long-term potential of America.

433.1 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day172.
