  • Hobbits and Debt Absurdity

    The world is changing. I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth, I smell it in the air.  It began with the forging of great spending. Trillions were given to the entitlements, kindest and fairest of all. More to the big banks: lenders and craftsman of the sub-prime loans. Trillions more …

  • ‘It’s Bizarro’

    The tone of John McCain’s recent floor speech on the debt ceiling debate was apparently meant to communicate an underlying theme: McCain is a realist amidst a sea of inexperienced ideologues and zealous demagogues. While much commotion has been ensuing owing to McCain’s mention of “Tea Party hobbits,” (and whatever that is supposed to mean …

It’s called the “Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010.”  A post on xpostfactoid notes on the atrocities of this legislation and provides a link to the …
