California seems intent on blowing itself up. It’s like it can’t help itself.
I feel for the non Bay Area and LA Californians. The inland part of Cali remains for the most part – sane. It must be tough to see the cities take the state down.
Go to it auditors. Let’s see what’s in that mess. I mean, it sounds like even the Pentagon doesn’t know. (In fact we are almost sure that the Pentagon doesn’t have a real grasp on costs. They haven’t had to have a grasp because Republicans (and Dems too – but Dems tend to think wasting the taxpayer’s money isn’t such a big deal) have always given the military piles and piles of money.
Audit and then cut.
Worth posting again.
This is Obama “living rich.”
It’s one thing if one makes one’s money in private industry where one must negotiate the whims of the market (at least to some degree) on the way to riches. (Hell, if one inherited money at least one is spending one’s own money.) It is quite another for someone to make one’s bones as a politician like Obama has. As Truman said, one can’t get rich in politics unless one is a crook.
This is great.
Progress in ending The War on Drugs?
Perhaps a little bit.
A great headline from Yahoo.
Yes indeed, the F-35 is a troubled weapons system. Billions and billions and billions in taxpayer money and still, it’s not broadly operational. At least not operational at a level that justifies the cost.
Really, at this point we should be producing drone fighters anyway. Drones aren’t as romantic, but they cost less.
We need to be cutting everywhere and there are billions and billions which should be cut from the Pentagon budget.
Don’t worry. It’s for a good cause.
Not that astonishing to us. But it is still nuts.
This is excellent. We hope that the response from the public is robust.
