Forgive Us Our Debts

ATHOM A FEW FACTS about our flipping national debt. LBJ's Great Society and a few other distractions—like the Vietnam war—stormed into 1969 and the Nixon era with buckets of deficit spending. Since then, the national debt has grown dramatically each decade, as shown below: • In the 1970’s, the national debt more than doubled, from $366 billion to $829 billion. • In the 1980’s, the national debt more than tripled, from $829 billion to $2.9 trillion. • In the 1990’s, the national debt almost doubled again, from $2.9 trillion to $5.6 trillion. • In the 2000’s, the national debt is...

Nicking The "Late Feudalism" Attack Machine With The Vote

T TOOK ME A LONG TIME to realize that communism and socialism are just the rebirth of economic late feudalism.

These nations, mislabeled "allies on the war on terror" are nothing of the sort. But please read on.

Fitzgerald: How Dumb, How Long?

Pensive HUGH FITZGERALD of the encyclopedic JIHAD WATCH site, today asks, "How dumb do we have to be, and for how long?" The answer of course, is blowing in the wind. And you know what that means. Massive explosions, terminal destruction. Bombs and explosions of every sort do indeed tend to present the olfactory sensitive with a peculiar odor of the day. But until then, let's just play with words, and send them money, yep that's what they need, more money, boast our misguided leaders. ews from Yemen today. A bomb rigged to a motorcycle blew up amid a crowd...
