Just go read this piece. Calls bullshit. Just as any intelligent analyst did at the outset. Shift $1.5 trillion from the many to the few, blow up the deficit, and round up the usual suspects.
One way to think about it is from the perspective of a small-business owner. Let's say you run your own bakery. You sell bread for $4 a loaf. Today, you sold 90 loaves, for $360 in revenue. You…

FAR TOO MANY PROGRESSIVES PUT AN UNWARRANTED FAITH in the orderly, inevitability of Justice. Be not a Romantic nor a Cynic: Be a Skeptic...one who knows that nothing is historically inevitable, that Good and Evil are both always possible...so work and hard for good and for Justice in every small and large way you are able.

It's time to get moving into the day.
Two strong cups of coffee behind and I'm finished rummaging through headlines and giving cursory attention to off the beaten track YouTubes.
What in the hell am I 1/1024th of, I wondered ? If anything at all it is not readily apparent.
But I couldn't help but wonder why anyone would hang their reputation on such a slim bit of hyperbole.
