Epic link dump

May come back to some of this later, had to get it off the desktop today.

Here goes….

Empirical evidence for my pet “fate of the universe” theory.  I think this is the only thing that makes any sense.

It was worse than that.  No worse.  Keep going.  It’s still getting worse.   I’ll have to post my original “blog” post on this (it was posted before that term existed, yea old-school is me).  One guy, out of nine, made a decision that set the course of a nation…straight down.

It was the U.S. or Isreal.  Or someone else.  Most likely those two.  BTW, does this counter as “cyber-terrorism”?  Either way, it’s a pretty innovative way to slow down a country’s march to the Atomic Age.   Anyone interesting in espionage, hacking, or what the NSA really does  should check it out.

Hey look, the Fed acted in a way that saved the economy from totally crashing and burning, and made a pretty penny doing it (which went straight to the Treasury).  How. Horrid. Of. Them. 

Budget Simulator.  Here’s what I did to balance the budget.  Seriously.  It wasn’t that hard (it you aren’t silly enough to think that tax cuts pay for things).

Pretty much everybody wants to Ratify the START Treaty.  Some folks (42 of em)  just want to give away $700,000,000,000 first.

Buy Gold! Invest in China!  Same difference, now.

The Reality of an Empty Stomach is a great teacher, ya spoiled brats.

It was the U.S. or Israel.  Or someone else.  Most likely those two.  BTW, does this count as “terrorism”? Either way, it’s a pretty innovative way to slow down a country’s march to the Atomic Age.   Anyone interesting in blowing up cars, killing, what Mossad/CIA really does  should check it out.

Wonderful translation of the Fed’s response to the election.   Essentially saying that since inflation is nearly non-existent, unemployment is still high, and the new Congress isn’t going to do anything useful, here’s $600,000,000,000 to try and create the environment where large amounts of hiring will happen (jobs, jobs, jobs).  That has made much of the world unhappy.    UPDATE: Here’s the Catfood Commission’s answer.  In a nutshell?  Cut taxes on the wealthy and raise the retirement age on the workers.

More calls to support START.

Super-3d-brain imaging.  This is pretty awesome.  Should get better.  I liked the part how each human brain has more connections and sub-networks than the internets itself. 

The New Bi-Partisanship.  On full display this last week, for shure.

The Middle Class Tax Hike/Cut No One Heard about.  (Difficulty: It was part of the stimulus, which “failed” according to the folks for whom tax cuts never, and can’t by definition, “fail”.)

Q: Why are Republicans are pushing so hard for extra tax cuts for billionaires?

A: It’s how they fund their campaigns.  It’s pay-back time.
