War is often a waste. A waste of people and treasure and other things. This is a treasure story.
You know the Military Industrial Complex has spun out of control when the founder of Blackwater has a change of heart. I’m not letting this guy off the hook, he should have been saying this stuff in 2006, but I am pleased that he is at least saying something now.
Time to spend another $4 billion on a new one.
I agree with him. If the Tea Party is truly, honest to goodness, for small government it should be for reducing the size of our military as well as for reducing domestic spending. I know for a fact that some people within what is called the Tea Party are all for cutting the size of the military, but still too few.
The mix of smugness and absolute absurdity was too entertaining for me not to post. Another example of the crony media trying to beat the war drums and save face for the president.
She get’s overheated at times but Hillary Mann Leverette of American University comes out of the corner swinging and doesn’t let up. She lands punch after punch.
Well, the times are a’ changing.
Matt Drudge, founder of The Drudge Report tweeted this earlier today. Better watch out statists. People are really waking up. On second thought statists, just keep doing what you are doing.
It could be worse young people of Espana. In Greece the youth unemployment rate is 62.9%. This is a dangerous state of affairs as the young and unemployed are the most likely to embrace violence.
A great article from Noureddine Krichene on why it is that our economy continues to languish. Printing money does not create wealth, but it does eventually create inflation, as we are now starting to see in earnest. Not that the official numbers reflect this as they have been massaged and manipulated so as to keep the general public in the dark. (Until it’s too late.)
We now have a situation where inflation is bubbling up, war is again right in front of us, unemployment remains high, and the American population feels uncertain about its future.
We are often hard on the president, mainly because he has taken crony capitalism to whole new levels. But his general leadership style is also suspect. It just seems like the guy has a chip on his shoulder, like he’s got to show everyone who’s boss. He seems to hold the entire idea of separation of powers in contempt, something which is not a stroke of genius by our founders but a roadblock which keeps him from implementing his agenda.
