It is time to stop quivering in our boots in pointless fear of the future and just roll up our sleeves and build it.

I wish the Founding Fathers would have written into the Constitution that all matters of expenditures, entitlements, standing armies, bureaucracies, taxes, fees, borrowing, and servicing debt had to all settled as a single unit, and all resource allocations had to be stated as percentages of unity.

How convenient to over-allocate the money on Monday, borrow money for the shortfall on Tuesday, service debt on Wednesday, and neglect to raise taxes the whole rest of the week.

'Doctors from numerous hospitals set up a station near the Capitol to provide notes to explain public employees' absences from work. Family physician Lou Sanner, 59, of Madison, said he had given out hundreds of notes. Many of the people he spoke with seemed to be suffering from stress, he said.'
