it was amazing

Although I don't share Mark Steyn's disdain for Obama, and his belief in the fake birth certificate (yawn!), I loved both Steyn's books. This one was especially captivating because we are watching the EU and parts of Scandanavia crumble due to living beyond their means. So why should the US be exempt? The mounting federal deficit (which is bipartisan, starting w/Reagan and accelerating during the Bush years, thx partly to George W's generous corporate tax cuts) is deeply alarming.

When frat boys drain the last of the keg, the party's over. When will the Democrats realize that we need to make major cuts just to stay afloat? The hawkish Republcans with their desire to invade and maintain bases everywhere are no better; they can no longer claim to be the frugal party.
