  •  My Favorite Line From Charles P. Pierce (5+ / 0-)

    at his Esquire blog:

    But, just because we have long memories here deep in the impact zone, we'd like to bring you this old favorite from the guy who's 50-50 to be your next president....
    Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. [...] We cannot — we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we'll all be dead and gone before it's paid off. It makes no sense at all.
    I think I can speak for all three of my children when I say that it will be okay with them — and with the prospective grandkids — if we spend a little money this week to keep my house from washing up in Nova Scotia.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
