The Power Of The Purse

Is it just me or are ALL the stories on the “Liberal Media” missing one of the main points of the story of last night’s deal approving a raise to the budget ceiling? All the stories that I have heard and read talk about how “the President won” or how the Congress averted a fiscal catastrophe by passing a deal that raises the debt ceiling; all of them seem to hold the Congress as a blameless bystander in the whole sordid affair.

Panem et Circenses

“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.”
Juvenal, Satire 10.77–81

Why does the political right in the US insist on running wholly unqualified candidates!?

That Ain’t Right

"That Ain't Right"

Thomas "Fats" Waller

"Baby, baby; What is the matter with you?
Ah! Baby, baby; What is the matter with you?
You got the world in a jug
And you've got nothin' to do"
