Bad Moon Rising



Uh-oh. News of the USA's credit rating being cut, which I picked up first from the Angry Exile could spell trouble.

Meanwhile, America's descent into insane fascist state continues with TSA thugs confiscating a pregnant woman's supply of insulin. Fuck me, calling them fascists is an insult to fascists.

It's trouble for the statist USA and trouble for us if we don't cut our own spending in short order, but a forced reduction in government may turn out to be a silver lining. With less money they can do less damage.

As P J O'Rourke observes, giving the government money and power is like giving teenage boys whisky and car keys and expecting nothing to go wrong.

I hope you're right, but I'm guessing their priorities for cutting expenditure will not be the military or the police state, and as the economy goes down the pan there will likely be more unrest and more draconian policing.

You'd hope they'd start with the TSA. Jeez, can they get any lower?

AE,

can they get any lower? They sure as hell are gonna try.
