Obama puts Medicare and Social Security on table in his new budget.

I wonder if this was sequester related. Some folks are saying the expiration of the payroll tax cuts are already being felt in the retail sector.

Has anybody been seeing this reports that Walmarts are having bare shelves? Seems they cut back on employees during this downturn.

A lot of these jobs aren't coming back, ever. We might lose 2 billion of them in the next 20 years. Eventually just about every job is going to disappear.

As a society we have to come up with a better means of judging a person's worth than the scale, scope, and persistence of the menial drudgery they toil away at day after day.

"Job creators" are mostly a myth, job destroyers are leading the way. And ultimately it's a good thing.

GOP comes out in favor of ammunition control and introduce the the Ammunition Management for More Obtainability (AMMO) Act. Yes, that is the name of the Act.

Sandra Day O'Connor is having second thoughts, perhaps the Supreme Court shouldn't have stepped into Bush v Gore.
Now you tell us.

We're giving big bags of cash to Hamid Karzai and so are the Iranians
Quote:
For more than a decade, wads of American dollars packed into suitcases, backpacks and, on occasion, plastic shopping bags have been dropped off every month or so at the offices of Afghanistan’s president — courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency......

Payments ordinarily range from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars, the officials said, though none could provide exact figures. The money is used to cover a slew of off-the-books expenses, like paying off lawmakers or underwriting delicate diplomatic trips or informal negotiations.

Much of it also still goes to keeping old warlords in line. One is Abdul Rashid Dostum, an ethnic Uzbek whose militia served as a C.I.A. proxy force in 2001. He receives nearly $100,000 a month from the palace, two Afghan officials said. Other officials said the amount was significantly lower.

Mr. Dostum, who declined requests for comment, had previously said he was given $80,000 a month to serve as Mr. Karzai’s emissary in northern Afghanistan. “I asked for a year up front in cash so that I could build my dream house,”

Hey Congress, Bring back the Boland Ammendment
