Brief Comments

I didn't make the local Tea Party on Saturday--mandatory overtime kept me in the office during the day, and I had something important to do in the evening. Here's some nice coverage of the DC Tea Party protest. I'm glad they caught that the objection is to spending, not taxes. If the government keeps spending more than it takes in we still have to pay for it somehow, whether as taxes, debt on our kids, hyperinflation, or the economic chaos from repudiation.

astroprisoner points out that "death panels" are nowhere in the health care reform proposals because no one wants to sit on a panel and take responsibility for the decision. Instead that buck will be passed around until it disappears. Gramma gets unplugged to everyone's horror . . . but it's no one's fault.

Or as Howard Taylor explains bureaucracy is evil.
