What Leaders Can And Cannot Control

Listening to all the news about the debt crisis in Greece and Europe, the USA’s exploding deficits, and all the out-of-control city and state budgets, etc. etc., I ask myself:

How is it possible for leaders to think they can control the earth’s temperatures when they can’t even control their own deficits at home?

The next time you see a politician, ask him or her:

What is easier to control – your government’s spending or the earth’s temperature?

The answer to that will tell you a lot.

    Obviously the former, because enough government spending can kill ANYTHING!

    I’m not sure what you mean here. I’d say governments cannot control their spending. There hasn’t been one in history that has.
