Base truths.

When you're in a hole, stop digging.

When you're out of money, stop spending.

When the economy is in the tank and people are out of work, don't raise taxes.

That is all.

That's pretty much it in a nutshell...

I've been watching the California efforts toward financial insanity for a number of years. The Bushobamanomics have provided a diversion, this last couple of years, but we're seeing that all manner of allegedly rational people think that there is an unlimited pot of taxgold out there.

I'm curious to see if El Rushbo's well-publicized exit from NYC will catch on. There has been a bit of a trend already extant, and this might well be an incitement.

People seem to be becoming more aware that government does not exist for the benefit of the governed, as Heinlein said. It's the enemy of one's billfold.

"Interesting times"< indeed...

I'm thinking things would be better if we make Congressmen wear colored shirts like Nascar teams so we can identify their corporate sponsor.
