From time to time I look at this. I shouldn’t – it’s pretty depressing – but I do.
Our debt is well over GDP now. While other nations have passed this and struggle on (Japan, for example) there’s just no way you can look at this as a good thing. But our current collection of mendicants, charlatans and nincompoops in the Imperial City just keep cruisin’ for that bruisin’ they are laying on our grandchildren.
And every proposed decrease in the rate of Imperial spending is met with screeching about “draconian cuts in essential services.”
We’re pretty hosed, fiscally.
And so, on that rather depressing note…

Speaking of which: President Biden(‘s handlers) polls continue in free fall.
Chuck Schumer (Sanctimonious Prick – NY) is an asshole. In other words, water is wet, the sky is blue, and Brian Stelter is a potato.
Voters are disappointed in President Biden(‘s handlers.) In other news, water is wet, the ocean is big, and Brian Stelter is a potato.
Tens of thousands of “migrants” are on the way to our southern border. Where’s Heels-Up Harris, anyway? Wasn’t she put in charge of all this?
This Week’s Idiots:
The New Republic’s Timothy Noah is a colossal steaming pile of stupid. Just when you think the bar could go no lower.
Maureen Dowd is an idiot. I used to read Maureen Dowd because, unlike a lot of her younger colleagues, she’s actually a competent writer, and could be entertaining. She always has been an unapologetic lefty, but in the last few years she’s become increasingly unhinged.
This Week’s Cultural Edification:
In all the flabbling, hooting and yelling that we see in the daily news, it’s important to reflect once in a while that the world isn’t just the Imperial City or any of the other increasingly-unhinged metro areas in the country. Mrs. Animal and yr. obdt. left one of those areas for good this year for rural Alaska, and boy howdy was it ever the right move. I’d advise anyone that can do likewise. Get out of the cities. Find a quiet place away from the hooraw. You won’t regret it.
In a recent tune, country singers Jordan Davis and Luke Bryan have some advice along those lines. In unsettled times, simplifying your life isn’t a bad idea, and neither is following the advice of these two young men: “Buy dirt.” Here’s the song. Enjoy.
