By a vote of 384-23, the House on Thursday authorized a $601 billion military budget for fiscal 2009, including $70 billion to fund war in Iraq and Afghanistan for part of the year.

Brace yourselves for out-of-control spending

  • Jan 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 2:05PM

Make no mistake about it: the central economic problem facing the United States is out-of-control federal spending and the massive federal debt that continues to pile up. As welfare-state and warfare-state spending has continued to soar for the past seven years, U.S. officials have gone on a massive borrowing spree. Since 2000, the national debt has almost doubled from $5.67 trillion to $9 trillion.

Smart remarks have a long shelf life

I could swear that in one of her television campaign ads, Darcy Burner, the Democrat running against U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert, referred to the president as Georgie Bush. After that had run a few times, I noticed that she was now saying George. The technicians probably just nipped that second syllable out without having to re-film.

The Spirit of Giving is alive and well in our communities

  • Dec 27, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 2:04PM

Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
