By the way, I just discovered this morning that the bookstore link at the bottom of the page was not working. It is now. Some really great specials in the bookstore through the end of September. Including Hurst marked down to 16 bucks! Go check it out. A great way to support the Stool too!

Gold up $4.10.

 

It's a long way to the top

If you wanna rock 'n roll

MH- The $70 Trillion Beast:

 

Two important points about the country's fiscal system help to make this clear. The first is that Washington has historically engaged in immense wealth redistribution from younger to older generations, mainly through Social Security and Medicare. Those programs' benefits were essentially provided free to the first groups of eligible retirees (in the 1930's for Social Security and the 1960's for Medicare), and then expanded over the years without the government's demanding matching contributions from recipients. The younger generations keep having to pick up the tab for the older generations' expanding benefits.

 

The second major point is that, as even the president's 2005 budget admits, our current tax and spending policies are unsustainable. We face a long-term fiscal gap that is almost unimaginable: the total difference between the cost of all promised benefits and the revenues to pay for them is about $70 trillion.

Classic guerrilla war forming in Iraq

 

Recent upsurge in attacks against authorities and US forces has parallels, and differences, with past insurgencies.

 

By Brad Knickerbocker | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

 

War is never by the books. Adversaries learn and adapt. The political climate shifts on both sides. Loyalties and alliances couple and decouple. The civilian populace - caught in the crossfire - often remains passive just to survive.   

 

To many experts, the conflict in Iraq has entered a new phase that resembles a classic guerrilla war with US forces now involved in counterinsurgency. And despite the lack of ideological cohesion among insurgent groups, history suggests that it could take as long as a decade to defeat them.

 

"Guerrilla warfare is the most underrated and the most successful form of warfare in human history," says Ivan Eland, a specialist on national security at the Independent Institute in Oakland, Calif. "It is a defensive type of war against a foreign invader. If the guerrillas don't lose, they win. The objective is to wait out your opponent until he goes home."

 

From the Filipino insurrection during the Spanish-American War to Vietnam to El Salvador, American troops have had plenty of experience in fighting home-grown enemies that look nothing like a conventional army. As have France in Algeria, Britain in Malaysia and Northern Ireland, Israel in the occupied territories.

 

Though "counterinsurgency" calls up memories of Vietnam, there may be as many differences as similarities.

Stool in a Pool: Interesting although I not sure why the author takes so much time to work out what income tax at one shilling in the pound is!

 

As any pre-decimalization Brit will tell you it's 5% as there were 20 shillings in one pound! :rolleyes:

I have this really strong friend.

 

He was working on the down trees.

 

Pulled to start a chain saw and hurt his back real bad.

 

Thinking it was just over working.

 

How did you get fema to come over? Did you call them or did they just come by?
