attitude. The current course is unsustainable. Those checks will always have the same digits in the payment box, but they may not buy a ham sandwich tomorrow, or next year, or whatever.

I guess its time to go out and buy another box of .22 long rifles. They don't eat any bread, and will always be worth something. The neighbors of the 23 house subdivision I live in are horse farms. Very reassuring.

Gov't checks are just another flavor of kool aid, another way to kick the can down the road, the basic driver of the increasing gap between skilled and unskilled employees, and the ultimate opiate of people who lack good character and common sense. Our gov't is borrowing over 40 % of the "money" they distribute. When further borrowing becomes impossible, as it always has, the checks will lose purchasing power, and those who have depended on them will be in a serious pickle. Its the story of the ant and the grasshopper. Whole groups and communities of our citizens sneer at the conservative values of education, learning to learn, reverence for self-reliance and the work ethic. Barry's stash will take care of me is the all too prevalent

Unemployment at six week low! Manufacturing hits one-and-a-half year high! Dollar trades at six-month-high! North Sea oil offered at three-month low! Oil rises to two month high! Treasury bond yield hits one-month low on fears over Italy! Sun rises fastest in last 23 hours and 50…ah…err…um…ahem….

OK; scratch that last one because unlike the other new highs or lows trumpeted by the press in our real-life examples, the LAST one is just SILLY.

The others are silly too, but they are more than just silly; they are deceptive. And they mean to be deceptive too.

Let’s look...
