The debt hawks are to economics as the creationists are to biology. Those, who do not understand monetary sovereignty, do not understand economics. Cutting the federal deficit is the most ignorant and damaging step the federal government could take. It ranks ahead of the Hawley-Smoot Tariff.

While the flying public waits hours in airports to be X-rayed and groped, guess how much security there is for people who fly private airplanes. Answer: Zero. You just go to your plane, load your luggage and take off. No inspection. No nothing.

You even can rent a plane and a pilot who doesn’t know you. No need to take flying lessons. Just rent the plane, load a few hundred pounds of explosives and away you go.

One wonders why terrorists haven’t done it yet.

No nation can tax itself into prosperity. Those who say the stimulus “didn’t work” remind me of the guy whose house is on fire. A neighbor runs with a garden hose and starts spraying, but the fire continues. The neighbor wants to call the fire department, which would bring the big hoses, but the guy says, “Don’t call. As you can see, water doesn’t put out fires.”
