Blog on Hold

My computer is broken, so I only have internet access at work until I fix it.

This blog is on hold for a while.

The ghost of Adam Smith is punishing you for being anti-capitalist.

Speaking of...
Is this blog about ready to get back to regular programming?

I don't think there are any good options.

The war was wrong, but it could have been done right. If we would have moved in there with massive force and secured the country; kept the power on, and made sure everyone had a roof over their head and job to go to in the morning, we would not be seeing this level of violence now.

The overwhelming majority of people will accept a lot before they are forced to fight. Look at us, our constitution is gone. 200 years of guaranteed basic civil liberties and human rights GONE, and what are we doing about it? We're going about our daily lives.

There are a few credible generals who are saying that we could secure Iraq at this point, but it would take a staggering amount of troops and money.

And let's not forget that the staggering amount of troops and money which we have already poured into this war has been mismanaged and misappropriated by companies like Halliburton.
