  • Is a balanced-budget amendment desirable? Actually, it’s just Republican eyewash, since the federal government does massive “off-budget spending.” That is, the official deficit is always far smaller than the increase in the national debt. I do not believe there is any political solution to what the evil entity in DC has foisted on us, nor am I fan of process reform in general, but here is one idea that, if it could ever be enacted by some fairy godmother, would make sense: freeze the national debt. But even that wouldn’t cure our ills. We need to follow Ron Paul’s advice and end the wars and the empire. That is step one to fiscal and moral sanity.
  • Creepy quotes. “More people that go to the St. Patrick’s Day parade; ya know, and what is that compared to this one here [the Veterans Day parade]. You wouldn’t have them if you didn’t have this, you know, people who served in the military.” That’s right — there would be no United States of America if we didn’t fight World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq I and Iraq II Wars, the Afghanistan War. In reality, the only things there would not be if we hadn’t fought those wars are the big bank accounts of the Banksters who own the Federal Reserve which prints the money for those wars.
