Budget Showdown Aims To Quietly Exempt Pentagon and Focus All Cuts on Social Programs

The unwritten and unspoken story of the budget showdown in Washington is the tale of both parties deliberately working to once again exempt the ever-growing Pentagon from America's larger budget/deficit discussion.

This is the thrust of the new Republican plan to pass a one-week continuing resolution for non-defense spending and at the same time pass a full year's status-quo Pentagon budget. Eve... Read more of this blog post »

“As the 80s generation experienced the natural journey from idealistic youth to more jaded middle age, many probably concluded that the world wasn’t changing—it was just more self-centered than they previously thought.”
David Sirota, Back to Our Future: How the 1980s Explain the World We Live in Now--Our Culture, Our Politics, Our Everything

“That’s what modern narcissism really is—a pernicious mix of qualities defined by three words that start with self: selfishness, self-absorption, and self-importance.
