I think the numbers are so huge it is difficult for the man in the street to understand. The / household apportionment is astounding but the political spin is " in the future" . It is always someone else's problem. As an economist this is much of Africa's debt. It is stupendous and effectively needs to be paid over in 25years as the cycle turns. Massive capital (not including interest) pay down of just under $3Bn p.a. before any other new liabilities.

5 Reasons Not To Bomb Syria

Yup, a tad rough trip between for the rest of us. Playing poker with one ace and 51 jokers. I am for something safer like molesting a Mamba.
Sending in the cavalry is only going to loose the war, where as staying out of the mess will mean USA not loosing. The military option was at the beginning, that door has been closed through in action. The waiting for hard evidence has meant a brutal price as WMD come into play that " never existed" . Wait until these get into the hands of terrorists as Assad dumps his stocks with Israel's and USA's enemies in revenge for entering the war.
How can anyone progress up to the next level if they are not getting the basics right? Life and psychological growth involves overcoming hurdles and not going around them.
Maybe he might be the only one who can fix it. This is because he is the main problem, step down and away there can be some respite. Realistically it is such a mess that I don't believe any of the roads to recovery are going to be without some severe pain (to virtually everyone), something that was avoidable, (well with less pain), in 2010-2011.
It is very scary, China's model was to work from small and grow off the back of the world market, it is hurting now. However for Uncle Sam to try working from large will only cause flameout.
I am simply over awed by such a dumb trick getting so far. What nitwits are in place who don't check their information? The person who slipped in the joke is probably mortified that it passed or byepassed so many checks. Ok doing such a prank was simply wrong, but it getting so far was incredible.

Obama's Late-Term Abortion Conundrum

Yes Dan, there is that. Not law now so those who have done it would not likely to be released. However they would have access to safe post natal abortions and no need to traumatise others. Thin edge of a very dangerous wedge.

You battle for years to have a murderer excecuted through dozens of professional opinions. An amateur effectively gets to choose not to have an abortion then when the foetus is now an unborn child the option to kill it. USA you confuse me...

I am surprised this is an issue of choice. 20 weeks to make a choice and they are demanding an extension? My view is that at 20 weeks you have made your choice to keep the child, later than that you are changing your choice.

The Pros and Cons of Amnesty

People with skills are finding it difficult to enter the USA. However if you are seeking welfare and can cross illegally you can seek amnesty. This is a massive hipocracy that is costing USA. Most countries don't allow people born to foreign parents citizenship. Until the overloaded unionised schools and facilities can cope turning these people into bountiful contributing members of society the amnesty will create welfare voters.
