The National Debt

 For many years and many administrations, reducing the danger posed by a massive national debt has been the briefest of mentions in the State of the Union address.

But never fear. When the problem becomes unavoidable, we'll be awash in useless excuses and insulting apologies.

We need to become a serious nation before it's too late.

As economist Herbert Stein observed: "If something cannot go on forever, it will stop."
