Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Way To Go Shitbirds

The shutdown cost the US $24,000,000,000 in lost growth and retarded GDP growth by 0.6%. Say the liberal pinko commies that make up Standard and Poors.

The 9/11 attacks trimmed $500,000,000,000 from the GDP, so better luck next time, you neo-confederate asshats.
