Connecting the dots

And solving the world's problems, two news headlines at a time. In my industry, they call this low-hanging fruit. In other words, two [or more] pieces of the Divine puzzle-that-is-life that so obviously are complementary that you combine them and as Laura enthusiastically says "BOOM!" problem solved. This problem is not '100% solved' but I'll take a 68% solution on this one for now. Put one and one together...
An emerging "deal" aimed at reinstating low interest rates on student loans hit a major bump on Thursday after congressional number-crunchers found it could cost $22 billion over the next 10 years. Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/07/12/deal-emerging-on-student-loans-bi-partisan-talks-continue/#ixzz2ZCyM5mhr
In a carefully worded statement, Obama said he was "deeply concerned" by the military's move to topple Morsi's government and suspend Egypt's constitution. He said he was ordering the U.S. government to assess what the military's actions meant for U.S. foreign aid to Egypt -- $1.5 billion a year in military and economic assistance.Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/07/03/obama-orders-us-to-review-aid-to-egypt-after-morsi-ousted/#ixzz2ZCzhSK1j
So let's see... help our future American generations get out of college debt faster so they can be more competitive in a global marketplace or break U.S. law (section 7008 Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Act ) and actively fund a Middle Eastern military coup d'état. Seems simple to me. Yet, let's see who's hands those F-16's show up in later this year. God Bless America...

Dear Obama Dictatorship, this solution is respectfully provided to you on a silver platter by the common folk. You remember, "We The People". Yeah. Us. You're welcome. For the competitiveness and safety of our future generations, use this advise. 

For the rest of the solution (32%) I have some very strong opinions about where you can put the entire IRS and the "Federal Reserve" (aka. National Casino of the U.S.). I'll save that for another post.
