Areas to note:
- If you didn’t hear yet, the presidential budget proposal is out for 2012. And it’s bad. How bad? Spending as 100% of GDP. Interest on the debt of 13%. When it reaches 20%, our economy is finished according to most economists. Some economists projected by 2020 the interest will be 100% of spending. Don’t count on a Republican president to save us, Republican lawmakers wish to cut Pell Grants before taking anything from our National “Defense,” which has increased 81% in the last decade… Screwed.
- Things are so bad and with no serious chance of changing that mainstream economists are thinking about changing the unemployment baseline. I guess if there is one thing that shows us, it is that we are committed to our economic peril…
- A bit later than I, but my fellow Catholics are beginning to understand that our economic policies will destroy us.
- Obamacare = -800,000 jobs at a huge monetary cost. I understand that we want everyone to have healthcare, but this is definitely not the way, especially considering the fact that it has been government intervention which has led to the current prices as it is… Yep.
- As a side note and to show the world’s growth as opposed to complaining about our lack thereof, here are 10 industries in which the U.S. no longer leads.
- When you read the above information about our economy and the way things are going, do you think we have a democracy? I don’t, and neither does this guy.
- The Feds seize another 18 web domains for copyright violation, and without indication of due process. Still don’t think we are seeing a rise in the police state?
- A politician admits a mistake. A Republican, even, realizing that the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act is unconstitutional and unjust.
- Alcohol kills more people than AIDS, TB, or violence, at approx. 4% of some countries’ population per year. Would drug legalization be such a big step, or is this a cognitive dissonance we are willing to keep?
- Common Sense 101: Why giving your kids energy drinks is a horrible idea.
- Rand’s Atlas Shrugged is coming to a theater near you…
