Wednesday Open Thread
Good morning! In the news......
Michael Savage gets pissed at Britain, calls for a boycott . I thought the R's said only the D's do that kind of thing ;-)
Got granny's original '69 Mustang? Convert it to scrap iron and get $4500 . The law of unintended consequences does work. Classic car fans are scrambling to save the best before they're gone for good.
The CDC says it's OK to go back to school . Parents rejoice. Was the CDC being responsible with their original 14 day recommendation? Here's something from the same newspaper about the 1918 flu. Hmmmmm.
A Democrat/Progressive weighs in on the spending issue . Maybe having someone from their side explain it might get ours to understand what we've been ranting about. I liked this quote, 'tis succinct:
In the last 12 months (May 1, 2008 to April 30, 2009) the US government has borrowed $1.7 trillion in net new borrowings from the public. This is equal to 1/3 of the entire debt that was held by the public as at May 1, 2008. That's right, in 12 months the government has borrowed 25% of the total amount it has ever borrowed from the public in 230+ years!
I'm worn out from my Cinco de Mayo party yesterday. What's on your mind?
