Good Feed

Read this one carefully and thoughtfully:  "The Economy is Worse Than You Think."  Well, actually, if you were thinking, you would already know it's certainly worse than THEY say it is.  These aren't "bumps on the road to recovery," they are:

Somewhere down there are your tax dollars.

Speaking of being lied to - take this fun quiz and see how much you really know about how the government spends your money...teaser: "we spend HOW much for Chinese hookers??"  Here it is:
Dirty Spending Secrets.

Thanks so much for Yankee tax dollars!
If you like keeping track of these things - and if you don't like it, you should at least pay attention - here's one of the great places for the truth:  Shadow Government Statistics.  The blue line below is the REAL inflation rate, not the one THEY quote:
That's a lot closer to my grocery bill pattern.

Meanwhile, back in the Middle East...let's see, the Iranians say they are going to TRIPLE their uranium production worries.  Ben Stein is calling the Arab Spring a "fraud,"  Here's a fun timeline from the Guardian, so you can keep track of all the fun: Arab Spring Timeline.

I don't know where it will end up, but I have a bad feeling that it will not turn out well.  Revolutions of this nature - mob led - tend to end up badly, although it did help line the pockets of Msr. Guillotine at one point.  Simple minded liberals (aka simplibs in the Rumblehome) think that these things are replicas of our own American Revolution.  Loud buzzer sound - thank you for playing, but you are wrong.  They are more akin to the French Revolution.  Ours produced a Republic (not a democracy!) theirs produced...well, chaos and murder.

Wishful thinking.

That's it for now.

Rumble on.
