Just got back from vacation, so a few unrelated thoughts:
- I am glad the GOP is working hard to prevent the U.S. from turning into a socialist wasteland like Europe. I mean, imagine how horrible if Detroit or Des Moines were to become as barren and lifeless as, say, Rome.
- Is Paul Ryan evil? Stupid? Or what? Why are people treating this guy seriously? The guy is a complete fraud.
- I genuinely don’t understand why intervening in Libya made sense, but intervening in Syria is off the table. And no one seems willing to address this issue clearly except to make simplistic order of battle arguments. Do you have any idea how quickly we can erode conventional capabilities? Am I wrong? Why?
- I am glad that United is spending $500 million to upgrade cabins…. No actually I’m not. Instead of better beds in business class, I’d rather have kept my complimentary wine and beer in economy on international flights. I don’t think most people realize how pervasive upward transfer of wealth has daily consequences.
Anyways, I’ll be posting more regularly from here on out.
