Suppose they gave a snitch party and nobody came?  The creators and managers of the Obama campaign web site “ATTACK WATCH” have not Tweeted since September 14, and the last “Attack File” was posted September 12.  I’m starting to worry about them.

With all the talk of a Palestinian state, perhaps some historical perspective is in order.  Take a look… You can say this about the Palestinians, they are a predictable and hostile lot.

From Big Journalism, an article regarding Paul Krugman’s thoughts on Social Security. In practice it has turned out to be strongly redistributionist, but only because of its Ponzi game aspect, in which each generation takes more out than it put in.
