Do you have a mortgage or know somebody who does? Is it worth more than they make in a year? Should they panic about being broke and stop spending money on essential things like food? Should they declare bankruptcy? No? Then why do you think the U.S. government needs to make drastic cuts?
You have to wake up today, for whatever reason. You have the alarm set, you’ve prepared for the impending doom that the day brings. But wait! What is this? You woke up 15 minutes before that beeping monstrosity goes off. Maybe the start to your day doesn’t have to be so stressful. You didn’t wake up so far before your alarm as to warrant going back to sleep. What good could 15 minutes possibly do you? Maybe, just maybe, you could skip the post waking up exhaustion and get a good start to your day. So what do you do? Go back to sleep for 15 lousy minutes and wake up tired and annoyed of course.
