I like the way Drudge tends to snapshot trends. Here’s an interesting one, considering the looming deficits federal, state and local governments face:
What’s missing from the above list, of course, is CUTS. Lawmakers are figuring out as hard and as fast as they can ways to drain more money from the taxpayers. The one thing they seem incapable of doing, at any level, is cutting spending. I’ve mentioned before that government is the only entity that, when deep in debt, can constantly demand more money instead of putting itself on a budget. The above Drudge snapshot is a revealing insight into how we’re going to be sucked dry. Government is busy trying to kill the taxpaying geese that lays golden economic eggs and, to switch sayings mid-sentence, once we’re dead, it will still try sucking monetary blood from taxpayer rocks. Bleh!
