Well, it will be a short week for all of us here. All 4 of us will be meeting up for an annual Northern Michigan winter excursion. So expect many adult beverages to lead to ridiculous political debates with some locals. Or many adult beverages lead to me forgetting about the real world for 72 hours. Here’s hoping for the latter.
I will write something about the ridiculous budget, it’s ramifications and the White House’s political posturing before the week is out. In the meantime, here are some quick links around the web:
Story on today’s budget announcement – MSNBC
A link to review the entire budget. I highly suggest at least getting a gander at the summary – Whitehouse.gov
In other news, the British press is reporting on our increased arms in the Middle East preparing for defense in the region – The Guardian
TheBookGuy, over at his site, is doing a bunch of analysis on the Supreme Court decision to allow Corporations to spend freely in our electoral process. Even if you don’t agree, they are all well-written, thought out platforms – Politicalbooks.US
