What Is Making Me Crazy Explained!

The thing making me crazy is the demonstrated, absolute inability of this government to learn anything from its own failures, or anyoneelse's for that matter. This incredible stupidity about the personal tax nonsense going on now is a perfect example.  First, all the tax cut does is steal from the Social Security Account.  Second, it does nothing to stimulate the economy because all the evidence from previous efforts show that a third of all people receiving it will use the money to pay down their debt.  Another third will simply save it.  Third, you have to have a job to get it so roughly 15 million Americans will get nothing and cannot stimulate the economy.

I have now found the perfect explanation for this insanity.  Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) observed that "the only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history".

That about sums it up precisely.
