    Things falling apart

    Things falling apart

    Consider this just an ideas open thread.

    Keep it clean, children could be reading.

    I’ll start:  There is a deep sadness at the loss of members of SEAL Team 6.  Every soldier is valuable and mourned, but this tragedy seems to be special.

    Updates:  This chart from Division of Labour (one of the Blogs I Read) in a post titled It’s the Spending Stupid:

    And a columnist at The Hill notes S&P credit rating analysis values spending cuts more than tax revenue.


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.

    If we are to survive the looming catastrophe, we need to face the truth

    “The idea that a capitalist economy can support a socialist welfare state is collapsing before our eyes”

    […] Legal Insurrection points out that it’s the spending, stupid […]

    Within hours of the Bid Laden operation, numerous officials in the Obama administration had compromised unbelievable amounts of OPSEC info about the raid. Within hours the administration had exposed the SEALS, their families and others associated to incredible risks. We should never have known the names of the units involved, how they got there, what they found, what they took, what they learned from what they took and much, much more. I knew then this idiotic release of classified information would cost lives. I just didn’t think it would be this bad, this soon.

    This administration cares nothing about anyone other than Obama. Never doubt that for a second.

    The pile of bodies “thrown under the bus” will continue to mount…

    It’s interesting and instructive to note that the lines for Receipts (State and Local) and Expenditures (State and Local) match up. Most states have constitutional requirements for a balanced budget.
