They are also saying we must reduce all expenditure by $40 billion, $6 billion, etc., and the way to accomplish this is to cut all expenditures as compared to previous expenses (both state and federal) by eliminating redundancies, duplications, and overlap. This is "water over the dam" and only prolongs the problem and increases time and effort expended, both direct and indirect.

It's not hard to tell when the Christmas shopping season is officially in full swing because my children's cartoons become shorter along with the days.
